RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2016 – Call for Sessions

The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Postgraduate Forum (PGF) invites proposals for sponsored/joint sponsored sessions for the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2016.

The 2016 conference will be held in London from the 30th August to 2nd September 2016 and will be chaired by Professor Peter Jackson (University of Sheffield) with the focus being “Nexus Thinking”.

More information can be found at: http://www.rgs.org/WhatsOn/ConferencesAndSeminars/Annual+International+Conference/Annual+international+conference.htm

In keeping with the ethos of the Postgraduate Forum we would particularly welcome different or ‘non-standard’, highly interactive sessions, that are of equal benefit to the audience and the presenter. If you are interested in co-sponsoring a session please send a proposal to Phil Emmerson (pxe991@bham.ac.uk).

Proposals should include:
Title of session;
Name of co-sponsoring groups (if applicable);
Name, affiliation and contact details for session convenors;
Abstract outlining scope of session (200 words);
Indication of preferred organisation of session (the more creative the better);
Indication of any non-standard arrangements.

The Postgraduate Forum highly encourages postgraduates both from UK institutions and beyond to propose sessions on any aspect of geography. This is a great opportunity to organise a session and the Postgraduate Forum is very happy to provide assistance with the organisation of the sessions should it be required.

The deadline for proposals is Friday 18th December and I will aim to inform session organisers of sponsorship by the end of the first week of January. Any questions should be directed to Phil Emmerson (pxe991@bham.ac.uk).
