Update for IGU conference (posted: 2021-03-16)


Dear participants,

Some indications of the next steps concerning the conference (27th-29th May 2021).

The Conference will be held online on Microsoft Teams.

Registration to the conference will re-open on March 20th, 2021 and close on April 30th 2021.

The organizing committee has reduced the participation fee to €30 in order to cover the administrative costs and the publication costs for the book of abstracts.

Update for IGU conference (posted: 2020-12-30)


Dear participants,

During this period, we have been evaluating different options regarding the way the IGU thematic conference will be held.

The protracted nature of the pandemic situation does not allow us, at present, to safely plan an event of such importance and size.

At the same time, we believe that the Thematic Conference represents a great opportunity for geographers and scholars from all over the world to exchange views on a topic that appears crucial to the scientific debate.

For these reasons, the Thematic Conference will be held in telematic mode on 27th-28th May 2021. After the winter break, platforms used and other details will be communicated.


We wish you peace, serenity and health in 2021!
