The RGS is asking research groups to help them choose the location for the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2012. Due to the London Olympics (25 July – 11 September 2012) it is not feasible to host AC2012 in London. Several other locations around the UK are also fully booked with Olympic-related and other events taking place. A shortlist of 5 locations and dates for the AC2012 conference has been drawn up. Research Groups and their members are invited to vote here: www.rgs.org/AC2012vote. Voting closes: Friday 29 October 2010.
