The 2018 International Geographical Union Regional Conference
Accounting for Difference
The International Geographical Union (IGU) will hold its regional conference in Quebec City from August 6th to 10th 2018. The selection of Quebec City was made last August 17th in Krakow, Poland, during a recent reunion of the executive committee of the IGU, an organisation that dates back to 1871. The IGUs forty different commissions will unite around the theme of “Accounting for Difference”. Joining the meeting will be the Canadian Association of Geographers and the newly createdRegroupement des géographes du Québec, who will play host to the event. The local organising committee, based in the Department of Geography at the Université Laval, is chaired by Dr. Matthew Hatvany and assisted by Dr. Laurent Bourdeau who together piloted the bid leading to the IGU announcement to geographers worldwide to meet in Quebec City in four years. The committee is already hard at work to ensure the success of this important intellectual meeting. The goal is, firstly, to offer the international community of geographers the best possible conditions to share and disseminate their knowledge and, secondly, to stimulate, while at the same time making the geography of Quebec and Canada.
