Mid-term Conference ‘Engaging Geographies’: 5th and 6th March 2010, Aberystwyth

The annual RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum Mid-Term Conference provides a relaxed, supportive, yet academically relevant atmosphere for postgraduate geographers from all aspects of the discipline to present their research and to discuss ideas. The conference is also a social event, and an ideal opportunity to meet up with other postgraduates. Postgraduates at any stage in their research career are encouraged to present their work or simply to listen to others. We welcome papers or posters from any geography-related subject: human geography, physical geography, and GIS. Presentations are arranged into themed sessions (based on submitted abstracts) that run throughout the day. Posters will be displayed during the lunch period for viewing by all delegates. Workshops also address different aspects of postgraduate development. The conference ends with drinks to celebrate the day and delegates usually join us in the evening for a meal. This year’s conference theme will be ‘Engaging geographies’, and will focus on how the discipline of geography is advancing through current research being undertaken by post graduate students. We will be hosting a plenary session (guest speaker TBC) on the evening of the 5th March. Further details will be posted closer to the event, but please try to make your way to Aberystwyth for this session on the evening of the 5th starting at 7:30pm.
