"What is the future of geography like, and what can geographical research tell us about the future? What does the map of tomorrow look like?" In 2018, the Annual Meeting takes a course towards the horizon, which the geographers before us have gazed in their quest for understanding. We welcome presentations from all fields of geography, from multiple perspectives and traditions. The common theme is the development of Geography as an academic discipline and in its societal role, as well as the ways in which our discipline is able to analyze the changing world.
