The Society of South African Geographers held its Biennial Academic Conference in East London in the final week of June this year. The week combined the annual Student Conference, a PhD and Post-doctoral Colloquium, an Academic Writing Workshop for emerging scholars, as well as the traditional academic conference which shared and celebrated contemporary geographical research. The week was a great success, hosted by the University of Fort Hare's Geography Department. Staff and students from the Department of Environmental and Geographical Science participated in all parts of this week. A great chance to share current research and to network with colleagues nationally, the next SSAG student conference will be hosted by UNISA in September 2015 and the following Academic Conference will mark the SSAG's Centenary and be hosted by the University of Stellenbosch in September 2016.
