About the RGS-IBG Postgrad Mid-Term Conference:
The 2017 RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum Mid-Term Conference was held over the 19th – 21st April 2017. It was hosted by a team of PhD students based in the School of Geography and Planning at Cardiff University.
This event was a great opportunity for PhD and Masters geography students to present their research and discuss ideas with their fellow postgraduates in a relaxed and friendly environment. In addition, there were keynote talks from prominent geographers at Cardiff University and workshops covering a range of essential skills. The conference also provided plenty of opportunities to network with postgraduate geographers from all corners of the discipline. For more information see: www.pgf.rgs.org/mid-term-conference-2017
