Call for sessions - NZGS / IAG Conference July 11-14 2018: ‘Creative conversations, constructive connections’, University of Auckland, New Zealand

The conference organisers are pleased to announce confirmation of the dates for the 2018 joint conference of the New Zealand Geographical Society and the Institute of Australian Geographers.

Initial key dates:

  • Call for sessions opens December 20, 2017
  • Call for sessions closes February 8, 2018
  • Sessions listed and call for papers open February 15 – March 31, 2018

Call for sessions:

We invite potential session organisers to propose sessions that address the key themes of the conference or the concerns of the research and study groups of the IAG or NZGS. Sessions may take the form of presented papers, panels, practitioner forums, workshops, or other innovative interventions. Formats will need to be negotiated with conference organisers once sessions are accepted.

We call for session abstracts of 150-200 words. These must be accompanied by (i) a session title (max 15 words), (ii) the name(s) of session convenors; (iii) a maximum of 5 keywords, (iv) (if applicable) the name of the Study Group sponsoring the session, (v) an initial estimate of the number of contributors, and (vi) the desired format for the session.

Organisers may choose to liaise with study groups to secure their sponsorship prior to submitting session abstract, but may also submit session proposals to the conference organisers independently.

Once received and accepted in principle, session abstracts will be advertised on the conference website, allowing for delegates to submit papers to specific sessions.

Please send calls for sessions to conference@nzgs.co.nz

If you have any questions about organising a session for the conference, please contact the organisers at conference@nzgs.co.nz
