The 30th International Geographic Congress

Dates: From 15 Aug, 2004 till 20 Aug, 2004
Location: Glasgow, UK
The academic programme and registration details for the IGC-UK Glasgow 2004, the 30th Congress of the International Geographical Union, are available from mid-September 2003. The Congress programme incorporates the 2004 Annual Conference of the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers), together with the involvement of a range of other bodies, and the joint international geomorphology conference, 'Geomorphology and Sustainability: Towards a Sustainable Future', organised by the British Geomorphology Research Group, the International Association of Geomorphologists and IGU Commission 'Geomorphology and sustainablity'. Between the Opening Ceremony on Monday 15 August 2004 and the closing events on Friday 19 August, the 30th Congress programme provides a five-day 'feast and festival' of geography. Excursions - within Glasgow and to other parts of Scotland, to Ireland, and even to Iceland - which will significantly enrich the Congress programme. The Congress programme is not just structured around a mix of plenary papers and paper sessions - in which many IGU Commissions are collaborating with the research groups of the Royal Geographical Society (with The Institute of British Geographers). Amble space has been reserved for submitted papers not formally associated with the themes identified by Commissions and their partner organisations. And a feature of the 30th Congress is that more innovative and participatory styles for academic sessions are strongly encouraged: panel discussions, shorter papers with discussants, meet-the-author sessions, and so on. The IGC-UK Glasgow 2004 will be a major international meeting with an outstanding range of academic and associated activities involving many of the world's leading geographical authorities and organisations. Given its range of activities, it is not only excellent value for money but also a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Can you afford not to be there? Full details on the academic programme, including the excursions, and details on registration, are on the Congress website - www.meetingmakers.co.uk/IGC-UK2004 Lorraine Craig, Head of Research and Higher Education, Royal Geographical Society (with IBG, 1 Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AR)
