Emerald Group Publishing are sponsoring this year’s Postgraduate Paper Prize which is awarded for the best paper authored and presented by a postgraduate student in a TGRG-sponsored session at the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) Annual Conference. The final details have now been announced, and are described on Emerald Books’ website.
As an aside, many thanks to everyone who submitted abstracts for TGRG-sponsored sessions at the RGS conference in August. It looks set to be a packed event, with more papers and greater diversity of topics than ever before presented under the broad research banner that is Transport Geography, proving that it is more that just a “branch of economic geography“.
We would like to invite postgraduates and early career researchers with a research interest in Transport Geography, as well as transport researchers from other disciplines to an RGS-TGRG spring workshop hosted at the University of Leeds on 2nd-3rd April 2014. If you are interested in this call please consider sending an abstract to Joanna Elvy (see below).

We will be looking for dissertations submitted by the department in which the student is registered. The call, which is still not open, will have a deadline of 31st July. Watch this space in the coming weeks for further details on how to apply.
