Call for Sessions

We call for sessions that fit within the conference theme Rural Geographies in Transition. Rural areas in Europe are under increasing and intersecting pressures and transitions. This brings forward new research questions and asks for new approaches, both in terms of theoretical perspectives and in terms of empirics. Potential topics are population developments, socio-spatial inequalities, quality of life, smart villages, landscape transitions, rural entrepreneurship, agricultural transformations, rural housing, energy transitions, and climate change adaptation.



Each session will provide room for several scientific paper presentations. However, if you are aiming for a special session format, please reach out to us first, then we can discuss the options together.


To submit a session proposal, we ask for a brief description of the session theme and content, including the desired aims and outcomes (max 300 words). The proposal should also include a session title, your name and your session co-hosts if applicable.

Please submit your session proposal belowThe deadline is the 30th of November 2022. To be able to include as many different session organizers as possible, and guarantee a diverse range of session topics, we appreciate a maximum of two session applications per person.


After the closure of the session call, the proposals will be reviewed and we will inform you half December whether the session is accepted. After that, the call for papers will be communicated by both the conference organization and the session hosts (deadline call for papers 19 January 2023). As a session host, you will be asked to review abstracts submitted to your session and to chair your session at the conference.
