With the 2011 conference still to come, it might seem premature to be talking about the 2012 conference. However, with the earlier date and venue outside of London – moved due to the Olympics – the RGS is already planning the conference and there is already work for research groups to think about.
The first task is to put the date in diaries. The conference will be held 3-5th of July 2012 in Edinburgh University. This is two months earlier than normal, so all other deadlines, for session organisers and paper presenters will also be earlier. We will put these dates here when we here more. You can also keep track of developments on the RGS conference website.
The change of venue also means that the conference for 2012 will also be smaller, requiring a large group like the SCGRG to make some difficult decisions about which sessions it will sponsor. We will therefore have some discussion about the conference sessions for 2012 at the 2011 summer AGM. We look forward to your thoughts then.
with best wishes, Gail
