EUROGEO 2016: Malaga

EUROGEO 2016 will focus on the transformative nature of geographic information, the ways geographers are thinking spatially about people, environments, and the relationships between them and how they can contribute to the achievement of a better world.
The theme of the conference is "Geographic Information: for a better world". Geographic Information: for a better world will provide opportunities to demonstrate the dynamic nature of geographical research of changing natural and social settings, studying the world, its landscapes, places, people and their relationships with the environment.
The conference will include paper and poster sessions, round tables and workshops. Registration and submission of abstracts can be done via the Conference Web pages
