4th Central European
In irregular intervals since the opening of the "iron curtain" the annual meeting of the German Geomorphology Working Group (AK Geomorphologie) has been held as "Central European Geomorphology Conference". The 4th conference will be hosted by the University of Bayreuth from 9 to 13 October, 2017, including two days excursions into the Bavarian-Bohemian Geopark.
"From surface to core – and back. A geodynamic view on Earth’s surface" has been chosen as guiding theme, aiming to bring together geomorphologists, geoscientists and geoecologists at the cutting edge of research. A number of keynote and invited lectures is designated as well as extended allocated periods for poster sessions for the seven anticipated sessions. The public evening lecture by Leibniz prize awardee Prof. Dr. Dan Frost (Bayerisches Geoinstitut, Bayreuth) presents recent research on the challenging question "How can diamonds come to the earth’s surface?"
Conference language is English, but posters can also be accepted in German.
Please register online - deadline for submitting contributions is July 24th 2017 (see key dates).
