The RGS-IBG, the RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum (PGF), and the PGF Midterm Organization Committee are working together to explore how we can provide online spaces that give you the opportunity to get a little bit of that ‘conference feeling’, in light of many conference cancellations and postponements this year. Content will be hosted here on the PGF website.
We’re focusing on professional development for postgraduates, sharing opportunities and resources with one another, and building a community of postgraduates in these challenging times.
Both the RGS-IBG Postgraduate Midterm Conference and the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference will not be taking place this year. We know that many of you were looking forward to attending either or both of these events and that it means missing out on opportunities to present work, network with peers, socialize with friends, and develop careers.
We’re exploring various formats such as online presentation sessions, informal meetings with delegates in what would have been conference sessions, workshops and training, written resources and blogs, networking events, socials and more. We’re also keen to hear from you about what you need!
For updates and more information follow the PGF Twitter @PGF_RGSIBG and feel free to get in touch via email or Twitter with comments, questions, or suggestions.
We hope you’re keeping safe and healthy and look forward to ‘seeing’ you online in the coming months.
