Our next Annual International Conference will be held at the Society in London from Tuesday 1 to Friday 4 September 2020, and the call for sessions, papers and posters is now open.
Our Annual International Conference is the largest annual academic geography conference in Europe, with over 1,800 delegates from 60 countries taking part in over 400 academic sessions.
The conference will be chaired by Professor Uma Kothari of the University of Manchester, who has chosen the theme borders, borderlands and bordering. Sessions and papers engaging directly with this theme are encouraged, as well as others focusing on all areas of geography. Anyone from the geographical and related communities is welcome to propose a session, paper or poster. Watch the video above to hear more about the theme of the conference.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 14 February 2020.
