RGS-IBG 2012: Call for GLTRG session proposals
The Geographies of Leisure and Tourism Research Group (GLTRG) is pleased to present a call for sponsored sessions for the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference to be held in Edinburgh Tuesday 3rd-Thursday 5th July 2012. The conference chair is Chris Philo (University of Glasgow) and the theme is Security of geography/geography of security- see www.rgs.org/ac2012 for more details.
We welcome proposals within GLTRG's broad remit of tourism, mobility and leisure and also those that directly engage with the conference theme. A number of past sessions at the conference are in the process of being reworked into edited books as part of the Current Developments in the Geographies of Leisure and Tourism book series with Ashgate.
Session proposals (max 400 words) that are seeking GLTRG sponsorship should be submitted for consideration by 20th November 2011 to Jan Mosedale (jan.mosedale@...). You can download the session proposal form at www.rgs.org/NR/rdonlyres/051F446E-3A43-43AA-B585-754DCCB5B80E/0/AC2012_SessionProposalForm.doc
Please note that due to space limitations in Edinburgh each research group will only be able to sponsor 12 sessions at the conference and to maximise participation, we would encourage session convenors to consider innovative formats for sessions- see the website www.rgs.org/ac2012sessionformats for some ideas.
