The International Conference on Population Geographies is a biennial gathering of population geographers, spatial demographers and others interested in presenting papers and sharing ideas on spatial population issues. Please explore the programs of previous IPCG conferences (available through the above menu) to get a sense of the subject matter of presentations and sessions at these events.

We are pleased to announce that the opening keynote address for ICPG 2017 will be given by Professor Katharyne Mitchell who will speak on her recent research on refugees and sanctuary movements. Professor Mitchell’s recent migration scholarship has been supported by an in-residence fellowship at the Brocher Foundation in Geneva (fall 2016) and a John Simon Guggenheim fellowship (2016-17).

Use the registration link in the above menu to secure your place at the conference. Abstract submission for participation in a session requires payment of a registration fee.

The accommodations link has information about housing options in Seattle, including a link to UW’s residence hall reservation site, which is now open.

Partial support for this conference is provided by UW’s Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology
