In 1997 the Society initiated the “Inaugural Fourth Year Student Project Conference”, now known as the “Honours/Masters Conference”. The aim of the conference is to showcase honours research undertaken in university geography (and cognate areas) across the State of NSW.
The conference aims include:
- To provide an opportunity for recently completed honours students to communicate the results of their research
- To showcase the variety of honours projects being conducted at NSW universities, and
- To provide avenue for these students to present a conference paper on their research in a supportive environment, gain constructive feedback and meet students and staff members from other universities
- To enable Honours students to share their research experience with Honours candidates from various universities
The one-day conference brings together recently completed Honours students who are working in a range of Schools in NSW and who have focused on a particular aspect of geographical research during their Honours year.
The conference is now an annual event hosted at the universities in rotation:
Programs and abstracts from some of the more recent conferences can be found in the Conference Abstracts category in the Resource Library.
