The Urban Geography Research Group (UGRG) is pleased to announce its call for sessions for the 2013 RGS-IBG Annual International Conference. The conference will be chaired by professor Jonathan Rigg (Durham University) and has ‘New Geographical Frontiers’ as its theme. Please note that the conference has returned to London and will be held at the Royal Geographical Society (RGS), London, on Wednesday 28 to Friday 30 August (with an opening reception on Tuesday 27 August). Further info is available at: www.rgs.org/AC2013

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 (see 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 Luke Binns luke.binns@gmail.com by 11thDecember 2012.

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: www.rgs.org/AC2013SessionFormats 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.
