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

Christmas Post

Shortly before leaving our offices for Christmas holidays, we’d like to whish you all a merry Christmas and a perfect start into the new year!

But before saying goodbye to you for 2014 we want to announce 3 important geomorphology events in 2015:

  1. EGU 2015 abtract submission on January 7th. In 2015 the EGU General Assembly will be from 12-17 April.
  2. The “2nd International Young Geomorphlogists Social Event” will take place during the EGU General Assembly on Wednesday, 15th April – 7:30 PM. Again, we booked a nice and authentic night restaurant in the centre of Vienna to bring together young geomorphologists from all over the world. And please note that everybody is welcome who consideres himself as young! Beer prices were negotiated!
  3. The 14th INQUA will take place from the 27th July until 2nd August, 2015, in Nagoya, Japan. Deadline for abstracts was postponed until the 8th January.

We hope that you’ll also be visiting the geomorphology blog in 2015, and again want to encourage all our readers to contribute to this blog!

Sabine, Lucy, and Jan

Welcome to the new Geomorphology Blog

Welcome to the new Geomorphology Blog

…we’re happy you made it to our first post! We felt that the growing Geomorphology community is lacking a unifying platform where posts and documents related to upcoming events, workshops, conferences and other newsworthy information reach many scientists at a time. Thus, with the help of Andreas Lang and Lucy Clarke, we launched this Geomorphology blog and hope that you find it useful and welcome you to contribute posts on:

  • Events, workshops, conferences, meetings
  • Outstanding work of young geomorphologists
  • Sharing common advices and solutions for tricky field/monitoring/data challenges
  • New technological developments
  • Interesting findings
  • Latest geomorphic processes happening all around the planet (or universe?)
  • Funny incidents connected to geomorphology
  • Other ideas?

We especially encourage young scientists to share ideas from as many different places as possible to make the blog a success – even if you believe that they are not noble prize winning! Finally, we are really looking forward to your contributions!

Best wishes, Jan and Sabine
