RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum Mid-Term Conference 2016 – Call for Papers (Extended)

The organisers of the annual RGS-IBG PGF Mid-Term Conference warmly invite submissions for the 2016 conference.  The conference will take place at the Research Beehive at Newcastle University from 17-18 of March 2016. The deadline for abstracts has now been extended to Friday 15 January 2016. Registration for the conference is now open.

The organisers invite postgraduate researchers from all areas of geography, however broadly defined or conceived, and at any stage of their research, to submit an abstract to present a paper or poster at the conference. The Mid-Term is a fantastic opportunity for all postgraduate students to present their current work and research to their peers in a friendly and supportive environment. Whether you’re a first time presenter, are looking for friendly feedback on early results or a draft paper, or want an opportunity to practice and enhance your presenting skills, this event aims to foster a relaxed and informal space to discuss your research amongst your postgraduate peers.

Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words along with four keywords, your full name and university, and your intention to present a poster or paper to rgsmidterm2016@newcastle.ac.uk by no later than Friday 15th January 2016.
