We are inviting abstract submissions from postgraduate students to a TGRG sponsored session at the 2018 RGS IBG Annual International Conference titled “Current and Emerging Research in Transport”. 

This session is aimed at postgraduate students conducting research in any aspect of transport geography. It's an open-themed session, but we particularly welcome papers which address the wider conference theme (Geographical Landscapes/Changing Landscapes of Geography) from a transport perspective. Our event hosts a wide range of presentations and is always well attended. Current and emerging research in transport provides a relaxed, supportive atmosphere for postgraduates at any stage of their research to present their work in progress, to share ideas and to discuss synergies.

Every year the TGRG rewards a postgraduate prize for the best postgraduate contribution in any TGRG session at the RGS-IBG 2018 Conference. If you wish to enter for the prize, you need to submit a full paper prior to the conference. Please get in touch with the TGRG postgraduate representatives (see session convenors above) for more information. 

If you interested in presenting a paper in this session,  please submit to the session convenors the following information by Friday 9 February 2018: 

Title, authors, affiliations and addresses, presenter and abstract (300 words).
