The 2018 NCRGE/GCGE Conference aims to advance our understanding of Powerful Geography and its potential in education by bringing together a diverse delegation of geographers, geography educators, professional geographers, and education researchers in other disciplines. We invite proposals for papers, panels, and posters related to the conference theme that explore issues and topics such as:

  • Geography that teachers need
  • Geography that students need
  • Geography that society needs

We will accept all submitted abstracts and organized sessions for presentation. DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 7TH

Presenters can submit the following:

  • Abstracts (100 words) for each presenter are required

Posters – Posters are exhibited for informal browsing with opportunities for individual discussion with poster authors.

  • Each presentation should make a unified, coherent statement
  • Materials, both textual and visual, should be of professional quality and be clearly legible from a distance of four feet (4′)
