Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Annual International Conference in Exeter last week. Even if you weren’t able to attend in person, we’d like to thank you for your role in making it a very successful conference.
The conference brought together 1,400 delegates from 45 countries around the world, with over 1,100 papers being presented on a wide range of research areas. The theme for the 2015 conference was ‘Geographies of the Anthropocene’, selected by the conference chair, Professor Sarah Whatmore (University of Oxford).
