Call for Abstracts
IAG Conference Canberra 1-3 July 2015

The theme of the conference for 2015 is ‘Exploring Geographic Connections’ and focuses on exploring and strengthening the links between geography and the diverse domains that geographers apply themselves to regarding current and emerging challenges.  The conference draws attention to geographers’ existing (and potential) contributions to the policy sphere.  Beyond the formal policy arena, the theme of exploring connections also draws attention the wider governance systems in which geographers have a contribution to make – such as through interactions with the business sector, the not for profit sector and others, in a wide range of contexts, from urban to rural.  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. What new connections should geographers be cultivating and what aspects of our disciplinary tradition are valuable to retain for the future?

We have received around 30 session proposals. You are welcome to submit an abstract for any of these sessions as detailed on the Program page of this website. Alternatively, you can submit your abstract to the ‘unassigned’ pool of abstracts which the program committee will allocate to the most appropriate session.

Presentation type: Abstracts may be submitted for a 15 minute presentation, 5 minute panel session presentation, or poster. You may select your presentation type preference when you submit your abstract via the online submission site.

Full details of the abstract submission procedure are available on the conference website: www.iag2015.com.au/

The closing date for Abstract submissions is now 24 March, 2015.
