2012 AAG Conference

It’s that time of year to start thinking about the annual AAG conference.  The 2012 meeting is being held at the end of February in cold, snowy, New York City.  If you are a member of the Association of American Geographers you have probably received the 215 million emails about the 2012 AAG conference.   The call for papers runs through the end of September and will more than likely be extended into mid-October (it happens every year).  So, get those abstracts ready, those posters planned, and panelists committed. The AAG meeting is coming!

If you are familiar with Northeastern US weather you’ll know that you’ll need to bring your boots, heavy coat, winter hat and gloves to the conference.   Now, since it is the off-season in NYC you’ll probably get good deals on airfare and hotels, but you’ll have to pay extra in baggage for that extra bag with all your winter gear.

Now, I haven’t decided if I am going to the AAG meeting this year.   I’ve been to a few conferences so far in the past couple months and I think I may look to spend some time in a warm weather location instead.
