The three-day RGS-IBG Annual International Conference attracts over 1,800 geographers from around the world.
In light of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the 2020 annual conference has now been postponed to 2021.
The new dates for the conference are Tuesday 31 August to Friday 2 September 2021. The conference will take place in London, and will have the chair's theme of Borders, borderlands and bordering.
A revised timeline for the rescheduled conference will be published shortly, including a timeline for review of submitted programme proposals, registration arrangements, and more.
If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
Because we effectively hit pause on planning for the conference while we explored our options as to cancelling or postponing, we have not yet reviewed submissions for the programme.
We will carry out a full programme review in the autumn, and we will be in touch at that stage to confirm acceptance of proposals and to give accepted contributors the chance to amend, update or withdraw their proposals. All submissions received to the end of March 2020 are automatically accepted for consideration in that review process. You do not need to do anything further at this stage.
We also expect to be able to accept a number of new contributions for the programme at that time, subject to capacity.
A full timeline and more details of the review process, along with information about any additional calls for sessions, papers and posters, will be published in early autumn 2020.
The rescheduled Annual International Conference 2021 will start at 18:00 on Tuesday 31 August 2021 and will end at 18:30 on Friday 3 September 2021. Sessions and papers may be scheduled in any of the timeslots between 9:00 on Wednesday 1 September and 18:30 on Friday 3 September 2021.
A conference opening plenary event and drinks reception will be held on the evening of Tuesday 31 August 2021.
