Since the early 1990’s the Time-Geography Network has arranged Time-Geography Conferences. Initially on a biannual basis and from the early 2000’s these arrangements are arranged annually. The 1st International Time-Geography Conference was held in 2014 and in September 2016 the 2nd International Time-Geography Conference is arranged.

The Conferences are generally two-day events at which researchers, graduate students, teachers and doctoral candidates from various fields and different universities in several Nordic countries come together to discuss their research- or teaching-related questions, problems and ideas that have been inspired by time-geography. The tone of the events is relaxed and collegial, and new participants will quickly feel right at home. There are usually some 20 of us who take part, and participants vary from year to year, depending on who is able to attend. The Time-Geography Event Days are cooperative endeavours.

Kajsa Ellegård is responsible for their overall coordination, and someone at the university where the event is being held generally handles a major share of the work involved. We try to arrange things so that the Time-Geography Event Days are held on an alternating basis – at Linköping University one year and at some other university/college the next.
