Co-production and Postgraduate Research: Call for Posters

RGS-IBG ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE 2014 London, 27 – 29 August 2014

The Postgraduate Forum invites poster contributions from postgraduate and early-career researchers interested in presenting any aspect of their research in progress in a visual and interactive way. This session provides a friendly and supportive space to present and explore the innovative and exciting geographical research being done by postgraduates and early career researchers. It also provides participants with a rapid and intensive update and overview of emerging postgraduate geographical research. A specific session within the Conference will be provided for participants to explain and discuss their poster.

Posters may be individually or co-authored, but at least one poster author is expected to attend the conference on the day that their poster is exhibited (a session will be allocated in the conference timetable for this purpose), in order to explain their poster to, and discuss their research with, other delegates.

The conference is able to accept posters up to the following sizes: size A1 in portrait or landscape format, or size A0 in portrait format only.  Contributors are advised to consider the design of their posters carefully — prepare the best material (visually appealing and succinct) that effectively communicates your research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel and important about your work.  Further guidance will be provided to authors of accepted posters.

To propose a poster for this session, please send the following information to the session organiser Richard Scriven (r.scriven@umail.ucc.ie) before Friday 14th February 2014:
  • A title for your poster
  • An abstract for your poster’s research (max 150 words)
  • A short description of how you will make your poster visually interesting, and who the target audience is (max 100 words)
  • Your name, affiliation and contact details (email address)
