Call for session sponsorship at the RGS-IBG Cardiff 2018

The Carceral Geography Working Group (CGWG) of the RGS-IBG is pleased to extend an invitation to sponsor sessions at the next RGS-IBG Annual International Conference.

The conference will take place at Cardiff University from Wednesday 29 to Friday 31 August 2018 with workshops and opening events on Tuesday 28 August.

The chair of the 2018 conference is Professor Paul Milbourne (Cardiff University). The conference theme is ‘Geographical landscapes / changing landscapes of geography’.

Since the CGWG was only founded earlier this year, we are excited to take advantage of our first opportunity to sponsor sessions at the conference!

Full call for sessions can be found here:

The deadline for session proposals submissions to CGWG is Monday 18 December 2017.

Please email submissions to Dominique Moran (, including session title and abstract (max 400 words), name(s) and affiliation(s) of the session convenor(s), and the anticipated format of the session.

Session convenors will be notified in due course as to whether or not CGWG will be able to provide sponsorship for your session. We can sponsor up to 12 session slots.

Please bear in mind that sessions cannot occupy more than two slots in the whole programme.

Once a sponsorship decision has been made, you will have until Friday 16 February 2018 to provide the full session details (with all proposed papers and presenters) for final submission to the RGS-IBG.
