The International Geographical Union (IGU) will meet in Moscow this summer for the third time since the International Geographical Congress of 1976, when over 2,000 participants from around the world gathered in the Soviet capital for lectures, discussions, workshops and excursions. The pace of global change has since accelerated in directions that once seemed unimaginable. At the 2015 IGU Regional Conference, participants will have ample opportunity to discuss these changes in light of current political-environmental challenges. The conference theme is “Geography, Culture and Society for Our Future Earth.” It will take place at Lomonosov Moscow State University (LMSU) from 17-21 August, 2015.

The 2015 IGU Regional Conference will be a chance for geographers from around the world to converse in a range of intriguing locations. This dialogue within and between disciplines will address critical issues in geography today, strengthening collaboration in response to global challenges through research and education. Registration began on 10 November 2014. We look forward to seeing you in August!

The deadline for abstract submissions is approaching!
