A good news for young researchers out there in the field of GIScience (though we must have discovered it a little late :D) is that there's Network of Young Researchers in GISc at XING which was formed out of the GI-Days 2007 - Young Researchers Forum that took place from 10-12 September, 2007.
"After the conference discussion raised on how we are going to proceed from here. Should the concept of a European young researchers conference be continued? Do we even have the need for a more comprehensive approach of a GI Students Network in Europe? Such a network could support organizing conferences, workshops and summer schools; support networking and collaboration between students, researchers and industry; and provide information on mobility measures, student grants, etc."
A survey at GI-Days 2007 has shown that there is significant request from young researchers for such a network. To discuss these and other questions Network of Young Researcher in GISc at XING was formed. Currently the group has84 members, and 16 Articles. It is greatly encouraged to join this group to be a part of the upcoming young research community.

Network of Young Researchers in GISc
The young researcher forum for Geographic Information Science aims to help participants of the GI-Days 2007 and other young researchers in field to stay in contact. The forums can be used to discuss current trends in GIScience, to get in contact with other researchers in the field, and to discuss problems and ideas regarding your ongoing (PhD) projects.
