Scale, Solutions and Geographical Futures

The Institute of Australian Geographers Conference in Adelaide, South Australia

Hosted by the University of Adelaide

July 1st – 5th 2024

Join us next July at the IAG 2024 Conference in Adelaide. Adelaide, a UNESCO listed city for music and festivals and cited by the Wall Street Journal this year as Australia’s coolest city, will be where the next conference is held. Located in the CBD, participants will be able to enjoy the nearby attractions, including beaches, markets and the Illuminate festival, and have the opportunity to attend mini tours, which will be run as interactive sessions by academics during the week.

Theme: Scale, Solutions and Geographical Futures

Sub themes: Sustainability, Education, Culture, Policy/governance, Place, Social justice, Conservation and more.

How can we build sustainable solutions at the right scale to ensure geographical futures? 

Scale is not only one of the pivotal ideas around which geographical scholarship is framed, but also integral to the implementation of policy – from local government to international levels.

  • What is the relationship between scale and place?
  • How important is scale in the development of policy to address major issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss, urbanisation and others?
  • How do different cultures and genders understand scale and what difference does that make?
  • What is the role of the field of geography in working towards these solutions?
  • What are our geographical futures?

At this conference, as we increasingly face and experience the urgency of the changes the world is seeing, we will explore all these questions and more, and meet as a community to consider and workshop solutions that are fit for purpose, at scale and possible.

The interdisciplinary nature of geography means that it is uniquely situated to offer theoretical and practical ideas for how to build resilient communities into the future, in ways that recognise and incorporate culture, justice, equity, gender, power, knowledge and the relationships between and rights of humans and non-humans. 

We will be sending the call for abstracts very soon, and we encourage submissions for papers, panels, workshops, speed sessions, debates, Q and A, posters and many others. 

The Website, Call for Abstracts, Registration and Key Dates will be launched very soon.
