ABSTRACT SUBMISSION IS NOW CLOSED 

The International Geographical Union’s 35th International Geographical Congress (IGC) call for abstracts has now closed.  We will be in touch with authors very soon.

SESSION PROPOSALS HAVE NOW CLOSED

The International Geographical Union’s 35th International Geographical Congress (IGC) will be taking place in Dublin from the 24th-30th August 2024. Your colleagues in Ireland are delighted to have this opportunity to welcome you to Dublin, and Ireland more broadly, and to have this unique opportunity to share the best of global geographic research, share common challenges and opportunities, and connect with colleagues from across the world.

The theme of our congress is ‘Celebrating a World of Difference’ and we are strongly focused through our academic and fieldwork programme on supporting intercultural awareness and understanding; promoting intellectual diversity as a strength; bringing geographic research and thinking beyond the congress walls; and grappling with the complex interconnections between people, place and the natural world. In an increasingly contested, fragmented and troubled world, celebrating difference as a strength and acknowledging our common humanity is essential.

Session proposals have now closed. Abstract submission will open in October, and important dates and deadlines are listed on our website. Please contact us with any queries related to abstract submission at abstracts@igc2024dublin.org.

There will be no extension to the session proposal submission deadline.
