RGS-IBG Annual Conference 2015: Call for Papers – Current and Emerging Research in Transport

We are inviting abstract submissions from postgraduate students to a TGRG sponsored session at the 2015 RGS-IBG Annual International Conference entitled “current and emerging research in transport”. This session is aimed at postgraduate students conducting research in any aspect of transport geography and related topics. The session is open-themed but we particularly welcome papers which tackle the wider conference theme of the geographies of the antropocene. In recent years we have seen an increase in the number and range of presentations in what is always a well-attended and interesting event. The session provides a relaxed atmosphere for postgraduates at any stage of their research to present their work in progress. Oral presentations in this session may be shorter in this session than in the main sessions if demand warrants. Presenters are encouraged to submit a paper for the Postgraduate Prize and priority will be given to papers intending to enter for the Postgraduate Prize.*

*The TGRG has a small prize for the best postgraduate presentation in any TGRG session at the RGS-IBG 2015 Conference. If you wish to enter for the Postgraduate Prize a full paper should be submitted to the Chair and Secretary of TGRG, prior to the conference date for judging. For more information and to find out about entry criteria please contact Angela Curl (angela.curl@glasgow.ac.uk).

If you would like to present a paper in this session, please submit the following information to the session convenors Joanna Elvy (gy06jde@leeds.ac.uk) and/or Clare Woroniuk (clare.woroniuk@newcastle.ac.uk) by Friday 30th January 2015:
