Dear colleagues
The organising and programme committee of the IAG 2020 conference seeks to reassure the geographical community that we continue to plan ahead for our July conference at UNE in Armidale. We understand that there is currently a considerable amount of uncertainty over the holding of large public events in this country. However, given that the IAG conference is not for a couple of months, is a primarily domestic event involving c. 200 people on a non-metropolitan campus, and that there is as yet no definitive advice from appropriate public authorities against domestic travel and conferences, we have decided to proceed with conference preparations as normal. We will, of course, continue to monitor the situation closely and will advise you all of any changes to our thinking as soon as possible.

In the meantime, we have some important news. We have extended the deadline for abstracts to the close of business on the 3rd April.
The registration page is also now open. Please go to: to submit an abstract and register! And check out the new look conference page!
Best wishes
The IAG 2020 conference committee
