The AGC exists to promote the application of geographic insights and analysis in all areas of society. Our annual conference is an opportunity for practitioners, academics, and students to share research and application ideas. Our peer-reviewed journal, Papers in Applied Geography, is the conference's flagship publication, featuring research and commentary from across the breadth of applied geography.
We welcome questions and comments regarding any of our conference activities. We are here to serve the applied geography community.
