9th international Young Geomorphologists’ Workshop

9th international Young Geomorphologists’ Workshop

We’re happy to announce the 9th international young geomorphologists’ workshop, organized by the “Junge Geomorphologen” from Germany.

The workshop will take place on 08.-10. May 2015 in Heimbach-Hergarten, near Aachen, Germany (see flyer).

The meeting will provide an ideal opportunity to present your current work, to discuss problems and receive constructive feedback! We want to highlight our interest in solving problems that occur during the empirical or writing period of your research.

Schedule:

  • Your BSc/MSc and PhD research in a 20 mins presentation (or poster) followed by extensive discussions in a benevolent environment
  • Keynote lectures on river network response to tectonics (Prof. S. Willet, ETH Zurich) AND environmental change in the lower Rhine area (Prof. F. Lehmkuhl, RWTH Aachen)
  • Field trip to geomorphological highlights of the surrounding Eifel Mountains and the „Hohe Venn“ (Prof. W. Römer, RWTH Aachen)
  • Workshop on „Good scientifical practice and ethics in science“

Even though the program is quite dense, you’ll find time to get to know the other young researchers and share a beer with them! No worries!

Logistics: Workshop fee will be 35 € for full board!!!

Registration: Please send the registration form to jgtreffen@googlemail.com until Friday, 17th of April 2015.

Save the date! And feel free to register with our mailing list to receive updates on the workshop and additional activities of the Young Geomorphologists! (Email to sabine.kraushaar@univie.ac.at)

Cheers the organization team
