Geography in a Changing World


The Department of Geography, University of the Aegean, Greece

Conference objectives and thematic areas

In an era of enormous economic and geopolitical restructuring and multiple, intersecting, mutually reinforcing or conflicting crises, Geography is called to reassess and resume its social role, scientific acumen and academic standing. This Conference strives to contribute towards these broader goals and advance the cause of contemporary Geography in 21st-century Greece. It is undertaken in the context of the celebration of 25 years of Greek Geography, initiated by the founding of the first academic department of Geography, at the University of the Aegean.

The thematic areas of the conference center on and revolve around the following themes:

1. Human Geography

2. Physical Geography

3. Spatial planning and Development

4. Geoinformatics

5. Geographical Education

The conference will host a series of special and social events, such as keynote lectures, thematic sessions, workshops/ round tables, panel discussions, a Conference reception and a Conference excursion. Distinguished geographers will act as keynote speakers for the Conference--details to follow, on the Conference website.

The official conference proceedings will include all accepted abstracts. The proceedings will be published in electronic form on the Conference website, with an ISBN number.
