Tips for making an abstract submission to the IAGG Congress 2022

AAG Life Members, Professors Julie Byles and Keith Hill will be presenting a webinar on tips for making an abstract submission to the IAGG World Congress. They are well positioned having been the President and Secretary of IAGG Asia/Oceania Region and are currently the co-chairs for our bid for the 2029 IAGG World Congress in Sydney and Aotearoa New Zealand.

The IAGG 2022 Organising Committee recently moved to a fully virtual event, due to the persistent worldwide impact and remaining uncertainty around the COVID-19 crisis. The 22nd IAGG World Congress was originally due to be held face to face in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
