Landform Dynamics and Evolution in Romania

New and innovative scientific theories, discussion and explanations are presented on landform dynamics and evolution in Romania along with a comprehensive understanding of the geomorphological processes shaping the large variety of Romania’s landscape. Thematically arranged the book deals with landform dynamics of specific relief types: glacial and periglacial, denudational, fluvio-denudational, fluvial, karst and coasts, as well as sediment fluxes, geomorphic hazards and risks. The authors are key scientists and researchers in the field and offer innovative views on research methods and concepts applied to the topics in question. This work will be of interest to students and researchers in geography, geomorphology, geology, environmental science, paleoclimatology and soil science as well as policy and decision-makers in spatial planning.

From field mapping and landform analysis to multi-risk assessment: challenges, uncertainties and transdisciplinarity

We invite you to join the geomorphologists from Italy, France, Belgium, Greece and Romania during an intense experience of keynote lectures, oral presentations, posters and field trips in the Vrancea seismic region, Romania. It is in our intention to encourage participation from all geomorphologic fields, as well as inter and transdisciplinary research, to provide a high-level but in the mean time comfortable and friendly framework meant to promote active discussions and challenging scientific debates. A multi-hazard hotspot of Europe, Vrancea seismic region is offering the perfect framework for observing, discussing and evaluating a multi-risk environment, where forms and processes, alongside prediction, modeling and validation of single and multi hazards are fitting perfectly within an extremely complex yet challenging system of approaches.

Invitation to the CBDGC Conference in Slovenia

Geomorphological Society of Slovenia,
Karst Research Institute of the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts,
Anton Melik Geographical Institute of the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts
Department of Geography, Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana

are kindly inviting you to the international conference of the Carpatho-Balkan-Dinaric Geomorphological Commission (CBDGC) which will be held in Postojna, Slovenia, from September, 13 to 17, 2016. The main objective of the conference is to continue the activities of the CBDGC in promoting geomorphological research and exchange of knowledge in the area of Carpatho-Balcan-Dinaric mountain systems and adjacent basins. We are inviting all geomorphologists, geologists, geographers and other scientists who are dealing with the geomorphology of these areas to present their latest results at the conference in Postojna next year. The presentations will be oral and as posters. The organizing committee will try to publish the selection of papers in Slovene and other scientific magazines.

This will be the first meeting in the long history of CBDGC to be held in the karst areas of the Dinaric mountain system. Postojna is very well situated in the heart of the Slovene classical karst where the study of karst features began centuries ago. It is easily accessible by all means of transportation and is known internationally for its Karst Research Institute. The participants will also be invited to participate in the excursions to the most outstanding karst areas in the neighborhood of Postojna.

The first announcement will be published online at the end of November, 2015, with the conference preliminary programme and information for registration and preparing the abstracts.

Ljubljana, November 5, 2015

For the organizing committee,

dr. Karel Natek, Chairman of the Geomorphological Society of Slovenia

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the conference of Carpatho-Balkan-Dinaric Geomorphological Commission (CBDGC) which will be held from 13-17 September 2016 in Postojna, Slovenia.

The conference is organized under the auspices of the CBDGC by Geomorphological Association of Slovenia in association with Karst Research Institute of the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Postojna), Department of Geography, Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana (Ljubljana) and Anton Melik Geographical Institute of the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Ljubljana). It is the continuation of more than 50 years of CBDGC’s efforts for enhancing scientific cooperation and exchange of research results across the whole spectrum of geomorphological fields. As this will be the first conference of CBDGC in the Classical Karst area, we would like to add some karstic flavour to the conference, so the presentations of this subject are especially welcome.

Please visit the conference web page with the 1st announcement and all other information, including registration form and abstract submission form.

Important dates

February 1, 2016        1st announcement

May 13, 2016             Early registration deadline (online registration)

June 13, 2016            last call for abstracts

July 1, 2016               2nd announcement with final programme

Join Geomorphological Meeting 2016

18th-JGM-JJG-2016-page-001Dear colleagues of AGR,

as you probably know, the next Joint Geomorphological Meeting will be held at Chambéry on Monday 27th of June 2016, followed by two post-meeting field trips to the Mont Blanc and the Bauges massifs (a week concluded by two French meetings: the annual one of the PhD students and young doctors organized by the GFG, ans the annual meeting of the French group on Periglacial, AFdP). A flyer of this busy week is in attached.

Withi our organizing team, I am in charge of the Scientific Committee. To compose it, we propose that each national geomorphological group nominate 2 representatives at the Scientific Committee.
Taking advantage of its proximity, we will propose to the Swiss group (SSGm) to join BAG, AGR, AIGeo, HCGE and GFG for this JGM.
Finally, we will invite I. Bollati to enter the CS as the representative of the young European geomorphologists.

For this 18th JGM, we have proposed the following topic: “Source to sink: from erosion to sedimentary archives”.
Thus, we solicite your organization for proposing one solicited oral communication of 20′ by one of your members to be presented during the morning of the 27th of June (the afternoon will be dedicated to 8 selected oral communications and the posters).

So, we will appreciate that you send us asap but before the end of December (i) the name of the two representatives of your group, and (ii) the name of the member of your group that will present a solicited oral communication.

In case of any question, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Bien amicalement,
Philip Deline
