IAG Regional Conference on Geomorphology Landslides, Floods and Global Environmental Change in Mountain Regions was held in Brasov, Romania, 15-25 September 2008 . The Conference promoted exchange of studies and methods for the investigation of landslides, floods and associated geomorphic processes in connection with different effects of global environmental changes. Over 150 people from 30 countries attended and Professor Dan Balteanu and his Romanian colleagues are to be congratulated on providing a very full and successful programme of lectures, workshops, field trips and social activities.
The IAG offered 3 grants for YOUNG GEOMORPHOLOGISTS world-wide (except Romania). The IAG Selection Committee have been awarded to the following:
- Rou-Fei CHEN – Taiwan
- Marko KHOV – Estonia
- Tri VAN – Vietnam/UK
IAG Regional Conference on Geodiversity of polar landforms was held in Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen, Norway, August 1-5, 2007
International Polar Year 2007/08 is a good reason to get interested in the polar regions of the Earth, to undertake research in glacial, periglacial and paraglacial areas important from a scientific, a methodological and a utilitarian point of view.
The IAG offered 2 grants for YOUNG GEOMORPHOLOGISTS for non-EU East Euorpean countries. The IAG Selection Committee have been awarded to the following:
- Veronika KAPRALOVA – Russia
- Nina LONCAR – Croatia
The Science of Scenery. How geomorphology can help Asia cope with its environmental challenges – by David Higgitt
Geomorphology can be regarded as the ‘Science of Scenery’. It seeks to explain how landscapes develop over time, the operation of earth surface processes such as erosion, landsliding and river flows, and the interactions between these processes and the landscape … The link between scientific research and environmental policy, however, is far from automatic. One of the key themes of the conference [Regional Conference on Geomorphology in Kota Kinabalu, 2007 – ed.] was ‘Communicating Geomorphology’, which explored how field scientists can integrate their research with a wider body of knowledge about the environment, discuss ideas with stakeholders and explain the significance of their research findings to a wider audience.
IAG Regional Conference on Environmental Change in the Tropics was held in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, June 25-29, 2007
Tropical Asia Pacific is of critical importance to global environmental change. The region is undergoing rapid development, land cover transformation and urbanisation. Against this backdrop of rapid transformation, geomorphology can make contributions in many different ways.
International Colloquium “OL’MAN RIVER” – GEO-ARCHAEOLOGICAL ASPECTS of RIVERS and RIVER PLAINS – Ghent, Belgium, 22-24 September 2006
The first two days of the colloquium speakers of different countries will present (in English and French) interdisciplinary case studies from a wide time-frame. The geographical context is not limited but focus will be on the Mediterranean area. Simultaneously an important poster session will be organised. On the optional third day, a geo-archaeological excursion in Flanders is programmed.
IAG Regional Conference on Tropical and Subtropical Geomorphology: processes, methods and techniques was held in Goiania, Brazil, September 6-10, 2006.
Main objective of the conference is the discussion on geomorphological studies and techniques related to humid and wet-dry tropical and subtropical environments.
The 6th International Conference on Geomorphology was held at Zaragoza University, Zaragoza, Spain, September 7-11, 2005. Organised by Sociedad Española de Geomorfologia.
The Indian Institute of Geomorphologists (IGI) organized the IAG Symposium on Geomorphology & Environment (27th-29th February, 2004) and International Workshop on Landslides in Darjeeling & Sikkim Himalayas, India (1st-6th March, 2004).

The IAG Regional Conference on Geomorphic hazards: towards the prevention of disasters was held in Mexico City from October 27th to November 2nd, 2003.
The Conference was aimed to geomorphologists and professionals in related disciplines interested in geomorphic hazards, and environmental topics related to disasters, to exchange techniques, experience, knowledge, and ideas in geomorphic hazards and related issues in an effective and friendly atmosphere.
IAG Symposium on the Relationships between man and the mountain environment in terms of geomorphological hazards and human impact in Europe,
Dornbirn (Austria), 14 July 2002
Within the framework of the “Year of the mountains”, an IAG SYMPOSIUM was held in Dornbirn (Vorarlberg, Austria) on Sunday 14 July 2002, thus linking the foregoing UNESCO Summer School with the CERG Intensive Course.
The United Nations has proclaimed 2002 as the International Year of Mountains (IYM) to increase international awareness of the global importance of mountain ecosystems. In this frame, the IAG International Symposium on ‘Climate Changes, Active Tectonics and Related Geomorphic Effects in High Mountain Belts and Plateaux‘ was a tools to understand the triggering factors and the evolution of extreme natural events due to climate variability and seismic/volcanic phenomena, in order to assess and mitigate natural hazards.
Conference was co-sponsored by INQUA Commission on Neotectonics W.G. ‘Mountain Building’, Italian Association of Physical Geography and Geomorphology and Belgian Association of Geomorphologists.
