Call for sessions: RGS-IGB Annual International Conference 2014

We are pleased to announce that the call for sessions for the 2014 RGS-IBG Annual International Conference is now open. The conference will be chaired by Professor Wendy Larner (University of Bristol) and has ‘Geographies of Co-production’ as its theme. The conference will be held at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and Imperial College, London, on Wednesday 27 to Friday 29 August (with an opening reception on Tuesday 26 August). Further info is available at: www.rgs.org/AC2014 

UGRG encourages submissions that are urban in focus, that are innovative and exciting, and that connect to the conference theme and/or the aims of the Urban Geography Research Group (http://www.urban-geography.org.uk).

Individuals or groups who would like to propose a session for UGRG sponsorship are invited to submit a session proposal to Gabriel Silvestre gabriel.silvestre.11@ucl.ac.uk by 20th December 2013.

To be considered for sponsorship, please include:

  • the session title and abstract (max. 400 words),
  • the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the session convenor(s), and
  • the format the session is going to take (paper session, panel discussion, etc.).

As usual, each session will be 1 hour 40 minutes in length. The format can range from paper or poster sessions, panel discussions to practitioner forums, and innovation is welcome. See: http://www.rgs.org/WhatsOn/ConferencesAndSeminars/Annual+International+Conference/Call+for+sessions+papers+and+posters/Conference+session+formats.htm for guidance on alternative session formats.

However, it is expected that most sessions will contain five 20 minute papers (with time included in each for questions) or four 20 minute papers with discussion/questions at the end. If you propose an alternative format, please indicate this in your session proposal.

If you have any further questions regarding the above call contact Gabriel Silvestre: gabriel.silvestre.11@ucl.ac.uk

We look forward to hearing from you!
