RSAI British & Irish Section
50th Annual Conference
9-11 July 2024, Bristol, United Kingdom

The RSAI British & Irish Section is very pleased to announce the 50th annual RSAI-BIS conference which will be taking place in Bristol, United Kingdom, on 9-11 July 2024, in the form of an in-person event.

Organisers are very grateful to Professor Emmanouil Tranos for organising the conference, and to the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol, for hosting the event.

The conference will take place over three days, with a conference dinner on 11 July, and other social events, including our legendary pub quiz and local excursion, taking place on the other evenings.

Organisers are particularly pleased to announce that the Spatial Economic Analysis Keynote Lecture will be given by Professor Robert Huggins on “Cultures of Possibility and Regional Development: Changing Behaviour, Values and Narratives”.

The Early Career Colloquium, held online since last year, took place in November and set a high bar with very high quality submissions. Organisers look forward to welcoming all participants, and in particular our prize-winners, to Bristol next year.

The call for abstracts is now open, the deadline for abstract submissions is 14 February 2024.

If you require earlier confirmation of participation to arrange your visa, please send an email to
