ABOUT

ICCG 2015 is the seventh International Conference of Critical Geography following:

Vancouver, Canada, 1997  |  Taegu, South Korea, 2000   |   Békéscsaba, Hungary, 2002   |   Mexico City, Mexico, 2005   |   Mumbai, India, 2007   |   Frankfurt, Germany, 2011

 

Field Trips:  

This edition capitalizes on the setting through excursions that mirror the conference themes. These will link and further expand session discussions on global experiences, cases and theory through engaging with local articulations and actors. Excursions correspond to 30% of the total program duration, whereby a repertoire of 5 routes and destinations will be available for participants to choose from in accordance to preferences. Details in this regard will be released in spring 2015.

Registration and Participation Fees:

Grants:

We believe that a successful conference is a diverse one, whether in terms of thematic specialisations, positions and experiences, or ideological and cultural backgrounds. Recognising the discrepancy in levels of welfare, income, and costs of travel, our Team has been and will keep on fundraising to support participants of the ICCG 2015, and is grateful for the generous contributions of donating organisations and bodies.

On 1 February 2015 we contacted applicants and recipients of the 25 Grants collected until January 2015, whose sum is close to €10,000, and half of which is travel-support.

If you have any helpful ideas or suggestions in this regard, feel free to share those with us!

Conference Size:  

Given high logistics we are capping the conference at 350 participants (initially planned: 250 participants).

Accommodation and Travel:

A list of recommended hotels and hostels will be made available as soon as we open registration in early 2015. Accommodation is not included in the conference fees. For those planning their trips we have prepared some helpful information, to view click here.
