Welcome from the Chairs of the 2019 EUGEO Congress, in conjunction with the Conference of Irish Geographers


On behalf of all in Geography at NUI Galway, may we extend a very warm welcome to you all to the 7th EUGEO Congress in conjunction with the 51st Conference of Irish Geographers, here in the west of Ireland – Galway City. The theme for the 2019 conference is Re-Imagining Europe's Future Society and Landscapes. The theme focuses on the centrality of the concepts of society and landscape within the Discipline of Geography and the importance of the relationship that exists between the physical and cultural landscape.


This conference will offer participants the opportunity to reflect on and re-imagine futures within the geographical boundary of Europe. The overarching theme will be reflected throughout the conference programme and themed fieldtrips. We hope that this broad and inclusive theme attracts a wide variety of geographers with a range of physical, social, cultural, political and environmental research interests. The conference will take place over four days (May 15th – 18th 2019), calls for sessions and paper will become available over the coming days and weeks.


We would like to acknowledge the support of the sponsors who contributed to this year’s national conference to date: the Geographical Society of Ireland and NUI Galway’s Arts Research Fund. Many thanks to you all in advance for participating in the 2019 EUGEO Congress in conjunction with the Conference of Irish Geography.
