Postgraduate Forum Annual Conference Training Symposium (PGF-ACTS)
Delegates undertaking Masters and PhD level research are invited to attend a training and networking symposium on Tuesday 26 August 2014 (the day before the Annual Conference begins), hosted and subsidised by the RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum.
About the symposiumPGF-ACTS is organised jointly by the PGF and the RGS-IBG to provide a training and networking opportunity for postgraduates attending the RGS-IBG Annual Conference. As it is held the day prior to the start of the Annual International Conference (Tuesday 26 August 2014), it also provides an opportunity for postgraduates to get to know other delegates and the conference venue before the start of the full conference.
Workshops, panel discussions and opportunities for Q&A, led by established professional geographers and other experts, will enable postgraduates to develop transferable skills whilst also enriching the experience and value of attending the conference.
The cost of the symposium is £20 (in addition to the conference registration fee), which includes lunch on arrival and an evening drinks reception.
More information about the programme and registration will be added to the conference website in early 2014.
