21-25 Beijing, China.

The call for session proposals for the 33rd International Geographic Congress (IGC) in Beijing 2016 is now open.

Unlike IGU regional conferences, this is a MAIN IGU congress held every four years. For more details of the IGC, please look at: http://igc2016.csp.escience.cn/dct/page/70032

Due to its significance as a main congress, your active participation would be highly encouraged. Although currently working hard to collect papers for the 2015 IGU Moscow Regional Conference, the IGU Commission on Political Geography (CPG) needs YOUR SUPPORT for the organization of sessions on political geographic subjects to be discussed in BEIJING 2016.

The deadline for session proposal is APRIL 15TH. This is much earlier than those for regional conferences, but in order to have substantial (i.e. not nominal) sessions for CPG, we need to start to prepare NOW. Your understanding and support for this great event would be greatly appreciated.

If interested, you can submit a session proposal form (see the attached) directly to the Local Organizing Committee or with the sponsorship of an IGU Commission. For IGU-CPG, please contact the co-chairs:

Takashi Yamazaki at yamataka@lit.osaka-cu.ac.jp and/or Virginie Mamadouh at v.d.mamadouh@uva.nl

If you have any questions, please contact us. Thank you very much and hope to see you in Beijing.

Best regards, Takashi Yamazaki Virginie Mamadouh
