Call for Posters:
Symposium on Physical Geography: Human-Environment Interactions in Physical Geography

Submission Deadline: Friday, February 17, 2017

(The organizing committee needs poster abstracts a few days before AAG’s February 23 poster abstract deadline to enable us to build the session before the AAG deadline).

The long-term interplay of humans and the physical environment is one of the oldest and richest traditions in physical geography.  The idea has evolved in many directions from the time of Alexander von Humboldt to the Physical Geography Symposium on the Anthropocene at the 2016 AAG meeting.  This year’s Symposium continues to emphasize that tradition in physical geography through both oral presentations and a poster session.

About the Symposium

The 2017 Symposium on Physical Geography will include a keynote address by Neil Roberts and presentations by invited speakers in the areas of Geomorphology and Long-Term Human Geomorphic Interactions; Geomorphology to Geoarchaeology; Geoarchaeology and Environmental Archaeology; Climate History and Paleoecologies; Climate History, Water Resources, and Ecologies; and The Legacy of Karl Butzer in Physical Geography and Beyond.

This call for posters is to invite contributions to a Poster Session focused on the symposium theme of human-environment interactions in physical geography.

To Submit a Poster Abstract for this Symposium

Please register for the AAG Annual Meeting ( Then, during abstract submission, (a) select “Poster” as the abstract type and (b) select “Interactions in Physical Geography” as the Primary Topic.

Note about Submitting General Physical Geography Posters

Each year, the AAG organizes a Physical Geography poster session that encompasses the full range of topics in physical geography. AAG likewise organizes poster sessions on Human Geography and GIS&T. To submit a poster to any of the more general sessions, choose the most relevant topics, and your poster will be placed into the Physical, Human, or GIS&T session, depending on its topic. Choose “Interactions in Physical Geography” only if you desire to have your poster associated with the Physical Geography Symposium on Human-Environment Interactions in Physical Geography.
