Maximum length is 200 words.

Abstracts will not be edited; authors are responsible for avoiding spelling, grammatical and typographical errors. Submission of abstracts grants permission for the Conference sponsors to include them in any compilation and advertising associated with this Conference and permission to disseminate them electronically.

Keywords may be compound (such as ethnic geography). Keywords generally should be nouns not adjectives or adverbs. Do not use abbreviations. In selecting keywords, authors should consider its desired placement in a paper session.

If the presentation is about the use of color cartography in the portrayal of racial patterns, appropriate keywords might include “cartography-color.” Under no circumstances should a comma be used within a keyword.

In referring to a systematic subfield, do not use the word “geography.” Use “economic geography” as the keyword and not “economic.”

If you have a choice between the plural and singular form, use the plural. If your keyword could be “race” or “races,” use “races.”

The registration fee must be paid by all participating authors who respond to this call for papers and who receive an acceptance.

Do not pay the registration fee if your registration will be paid by a sponsoring partner, sponsor or co-sponsor. Double check this first.

Registration fees guarantee your place on the program and are non-refundable.
