Financial support for conference attendance
The Society regrets it is unable to contribute to the costs of conference registration or attendance (travel, accommodation or any other expenses) for any conference delegate other than invited plenary speakers.
All delegates wishing to participate in the conference programme must register and pay their registration fees before the conference.
Delegates who need financial support to attend the conference are advised to look for funding from their own institutions or other sources in their own country.
International delegates, or those who are not working in geography departments, may be eligible for a Research Group Guest registration if their conference session is sponsored by one of the Society's affiliated Research Groups and/or if they meet other eligibility criteria. Research Group Guests receive complimentary registration for one or more days of conference, at the invitation of the Research Group and the conference organisers. Assistance with travel and accommodation costs is not included.
Research Group Guest registrations are very limited in number and over-subscribed every year. Delegates should contact their session convenor and the Chair of the relevant Research Group for more information.
To find out more about eligibility, please contact the organisers by email: AC2016@rgs.org.
