UQ hosts the 2017 Institute of Australian Geographers (IAG) conference

This July, nearly 300 geographers and planners came to UQ to attend the 2017 Institute of Australian Geographers (IAG) conference.

This year’s conference theme was ‘Geography Counts’, stressing the role of geography in informing policy from a holistic, global perspective. The diversity of keynote speakers reflected the interdisciplinarity of the conference.

IAG 2017 Conference Chair was Dr Thomas Sigler, Lecturer in Human Geography. We would also like to recognise those from University of the Sunshine Coast, Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology (QUT), and Central Queensland University for their input.
