6th EUGEO congress – Brussels, September 4-6, 2017, Palace of the Academies
EUGEO, the Association of Geographical Societies in Europe, organises every two years a major international scientific congress, bringing together geographers from all over the world.
After Amsterdam, London, Bratislava, Rome and Budapest in 2015, where over 600 participants attended the congress, EUGEO 2017 will take place in Brussels in the prestigious Palace of the Academies, at short distance from the Grand Place.
Geography for Europe is the theme of this congress to be held in the European Capital. The theme covers the many aspects of the geography of Europe as well as the contribution of geography to the development of Europe, and the problems the continent has to face.
Presentations will be in English or French. We ask participants who communicate in French to accompany their oral paper with a PowerPoint presentation in English.
The format of the congress will be based on thematic sessions where topical issues relevant for Europe and Geography will be presented and discussed.
