Event description
MAD-AAG 2019 Annual Meeting 
November 19, 2019 09:00am — 06:00pm
Hosted by the United States Geological Survey, Catonsville, Maryland

MAD-AAG 2019 invites paper and poster submissions that highlight the range of people, places, data sources, and creative productions with which MAD Community members engage. The MAD Community is a bustling, lively association, and the annual MAD-AAG Conference invites abstract submissions that highlight the diverse work by our members. 
All papers and posters on all topics are welcome!
We also invite undergraduate and graduate paper and poster submissions for the 6th annual MAGMA (MAD's Annual Geography Meritorious Award) Competition. In parallel to MAGMA, graduate students can submit their research for the AAG Council Award for Outstanding Graduate Student Paper at a Regional Meeting, ($1000 award to be used to attend the AAG in April).  
In addition to welcoming professional and university-college colleagues, we encourage sessions organized by & oriented toward geographers in secondary education. MAD also encourages contingent instructors to use this event for networking, sharing, and gaining additional supportive resources.
As the MAD Region is unique in its higher proportion of professional geographers relative to the other AAG-Divisions, the MAD-Annual Conference is a particularly vital, regional venue to network and highlight key developments taking place in the discipline outside academia.

Keywords can be compound, e.g. "political geography." Separate keywords with commas.
Keywords should generally be nouns rather than adjectives.
