The three-day RGS-IBG Annual International Conference attracts over 2000 geographers from around the world. This year, the conference is taking place online, with in-person elements if it is possible to do so.
We are planning a conference with in-person and online options. We will confirm by early May 2021 whether the planned in-person elements can go ahead.
The conference programme for AC2021 will be announced in late May 2021 after the call for sessions, papers and posters has closed. Information about programmes for past conferences can be found here.
The rescheduled Annual International Conference 2021 will start at 09:00 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 Tuesday 31 August and 18:30 on Friday 3 September 2021.
A conference opening plenary event will be held on the evening of Tuesday 31 August 2021.
