Annual International Conference delegates courtesy of Nando Machado
The call for sessions, papers and posters for this year’s Annual International Conference is now open. The conference will take place in London – at the Society and Imperial College London’s nearby South Kensington campus – from the evening of Tuesday 29 August to Friday 1 September, and will allow for in-person and online participation.
Chaired by Professor Harriet Bulkeley of Newcastle University, this year’s theme, Climate changed geographies, invites a conversation about how climate change is, and is not, changing our discipline – our ways of knowing, exploring, understanding and acting geographically – and with what consequences. We welcome submissions that engage directly with this theme, as well as from all areas of the discipline.
Building on past sustainability initiatives, we are also exploring different ways of delivering the annual conference to make it as sustainable as possible. We are delighted to be piloting a new ‘hubs’ model at this year's conference, allowing online attendees to connect in person in their local region. To reflect this, we are also introducing a new registration fee category of remote viewing hub, and one day of plenaries from hubs across the globe, to connect participants across time zones.
Guidance is available for session organisers and presenters. In particular, we encourage you to consider the kinds of spaces and conversations you want to curate, and how to best engage attendees in person and online.
In light of the announcement of upcoming UCU strike dates, please note that we have extended the deadline for programme submissions to Friday 24 March (previously Friday 17 March).
