More about the programme

There will be no proceedings of conference published, either online or in print, by the Society. Paper titles will appear in the printed programme book, while abstracts will be available online. The conference organisers therefore do not require authors to submit their full paper before or after the conference. Session chairs or convenors may request a copy of the paper/presentation from authors to help with discussion in the session, but this is at their discretion.

If authors require confirmation of paper acceptance, for example for funding applications, please contact ac2018@rgs.org for assistance.

Programmes for past conferences

Our past and future conferences page provides information about the Society's annual international conference for the past twenty years, including: the conference programmes in PDF format, information about the theme from conference Chairs, and media coverage reports.
