Dear tourism geographers,


Please find attached a first Call for papers for the Pre IGU-regional conference meeting, 2-5 August 2018, La Malbaie,Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada titled

Tourism Geographies.

The central aim of this conference is to provide a platform for debating current research in tourism geographies. The conference has no particular topic and its ambition is to be inclusive. We encourage various perspectives on all issues addressed within tourism geographies. We also hope for a wide attendance in order to fulfill one of the purposes of the IGU, i.e. to facilitate learning by not only comparing different places, but also different approaches and traditions.


The conference is co-organized and supported by Department of Geography, UniversitÚ Laval, Quebec City, the IGU Commission Geography of Tourism, Leisure and Global Change, the CAG Tourism and Recreation Study Group and the AAG Recreation, Tourism and Sport Specialty Group.

Abstracts should be submitted not later than 15 March 2018 to dieter.muller@umu.se. All abstracts will be reviewed by the IGU Commission before being accepted for the conference. Notification of acceptance will be send out not later than 2 April 2018.

Abstracts should be in English. Besides paper title, authors and affiliations, abstracts should not exceed 300 words and should contain information on theoretical background, methodology, results and conclusions, as well as five keywords. Abstracts have to be submitted in a Word compatible format. Sessions will be organized based on the content of the submitted abstracts.
