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 the Tuesday before the Annual Conference begins, hosted by the RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum (PGF).

About the symposium

PGF-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. It is held the day prior to the start of the Annual International Conference, and 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.

We are delighted to announce the programme for PGF-ACTS 2016. If you have already registered for the conference, and would like to add PGF-ACTS to your booking, please email the conference organisers at AC2016@rgs.org.

Mary Greene (RGS-IBG PGF Secretary 2014-15) has put together a personal guide to conference attendance for postgraduates attending their first conference, which is available as a pdf here: A Postgraduate's Guide to Conference Attendance.

Further information about the Postgraduate Forum and their activities at the Annual Conference is available on their website.
