IAG 2015 Call for Parallel Sessions

Call for parallel sessions closes 15 January, 2015
IAG 2015 Conference, Canberra July 1-3 at the Australian National University


The theme of the conference is ‘Exploring Geographic Connections’ which focuses on exploring and strengthening the links between geography and the diverse domains that geographers apply themselves.  The conference will draw attention to the existing and potential contributions made by geographers to the policy sphere and wider governance system through interactions with the business sector, the not for profit sector and others, in a wide range of contexts, from urban to rural. Of particular emphasis at this conference is the focus on exploring cultural connections, and foremost among those are the links to Indigenous communities.  In pursuing the theme of geographic connections, the conference also turns the spotlight on the discipline itself, to inquire where Geography is heading from national and international perspectives.

 The call for parallel sessions is currently open. There are  2 options to submit a session proposal.

1)     Sessions proposed by the Study Groups will be given priority when developing the Program so please  consider developing your session proposals in collaboration with the  relevant Study Group. More information on Study Groups including contact details is available here:

2)     Session proposals outside the study groups are also welcome. To propose a conference session outside of the study group structure please forward the following information to or

Title for session (10 Words max)

Abstract (200 words  max)

Forwarded emails expressing interest from at least 4 people with draft titles of proposed presentations for the session (final presentation titles not necessary until 10 March).

The due date for session proposals is 15 January 2015 so that we can incorporate sessions into the Abstract submission website (therefore delegates will be able to directly align their abstracts to these sessions). 

We look forward to seeing you in Canberra, 

Tom Measham and Bruce Doran
