CALL FOR SESSION PROPOSALS

The Committee of the EGRG would like to invite proposals for sessions to be sponsored by the EGRG at the 2016 Annual Conference of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) (RGS-IBG). We are able to sponsor numerous sessions which, in total, account for no more than 12 time slots (usually 1-2 time slots per session), and are looking forward to EGRG having its usual presence at the forthcoming annual event.
Sessions may take the form of presented papers, panels, practitioner forums, discussions or workshops, and innovative sessions and formats are encouraged. We would also welcome joint sessions with other research groups. Proposals should relate to debates, literatures or approaches in economic geography (http://www.egrg.rgs.org/).

Location: The Royal Geographical Society, London
Conference Theme: Nexus Thinking [Conference website]
