An Introduction to the Annual Meeting of the AAG

The Annual Meeting of the AAG is quite possibly the largest geography conference in the world, with over 8,500 geographers converging from the U.S., Canada, and nearly 60 other countries in a typical year. With thousands of different papers and presentations scheduled throughout the conference, you’ll find no shortage of activities that reflect your specific interests within the field of geography. However, with so much going on, it can be challenging for first-time attendees to know how to prepare for and make the most of the meeting.
