ISCONTOUR Testimonials

Stefanie Bohacek, best-ICT-related paper award winner, summarises her ISCONTOUR experience: „If you would have asked me half a year ago if I could imagine an academic career I would have most probably answered with ‘I don’t know.’ However, when my research paper got accepted by the ISCONTOUR committee and especially when it received the Best ICT Paper Award I realized that there might be an undiscovered strength and passion in me for research work. Now, that I could present my study – on which I spent a large amount of hours time and energy – I begun to understand how good it feels to talk about something that YOU created.”
