RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum: call for sessions

pgfThe Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Postgraduate Forum (RGSPGF) invites proposals for sponsored/joint sponsored sessions for the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2015. The 2015 conference will be held at the University of Exeter from the 2nd to 4th September 2015 and will be chaired by Professor Sarah Whatmore (University of Oxford) with the focus being on “Geographies of the Anthropocene”.

More information can be found here.

Please note the extended deadline of Friday 19th December.

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 Greg Thomas (ggt9@aber.ac.uk) and Will Andrews (wwa9@aber.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 encourages postgraduates to propose sessions. This is a great opportunity to organise a session and the Postgraduate Forum is happy to provide assistance with the organisation of the sessions should it be required.

The deadline for proposal is Friday 19th December and we will be aiming to inform session organisers of sponsorship before the New Year. Any questions should be directed to Greg Thomas (ggt9@aber.ac.uk)

Best wishes,

Greg Thomas and Will Andrews
