New dates for IAG conferences and Executive Committee term

The Council of the International Association of Geomorphologists, comprised of its National Scientific Members convened virtually on 19 January 2021. 48 people were in attendance with 35 NSM who cast votes (>70% of the membership). Three important decisions were taken which will shape the actions of the IAG until 2022:

1. The Regional Conference on Geomorphology in Mashhad, Iran will be rescheduled to Spring 2022

2. The International Conference on Geomorphology in Coimbra will now be held 12-16 September 2022

3. The Executive Committee’s term will be extended to allow elections to be held in person at the ICG in September 2022.

As a consequence the IAG’s working group terms will be extended to the ICG in September 2022. After this date the four-year cycle will be re-established with the next ICG being held in 2026.

We would like to thank the national delegates for their participation in this meeting and all the National Scientific Members for their ongoing support.

In order to compensate for the lack of in-person IAG meetings, we are proud to present the inaugural IAG Regional Webinars which will be held during International Geomorphology Week 1-7 March 2021 and we encourage you all to attend! Details as they become available will be posted here.

Update on IAG Conferences, Working Groups & Executive Committee Status

After careful deliberation of the IAG Executive Committee, we will be calling an extraordinary (online) meeting of the IAG Council (comprising the National Scientific Members) on the 19th of January 2021 in order to propose and discuss:
  • Postponement of the Regional Conference on Geomorphology (RCG) in Mashad, Iran to Spring 2022 following the recommendations of the local organisers;
  • Postponement of the International Conference on Geomorphology (ICG) in Coimbra, Portugal to September 2022 following the recommendations of the local organisers; and
  • Extension of the current IAG Executive Committee’s term up to and including the postponed International Conference on Geomorphology so elections can be held in person.

In addition, if the postponement of the ICG is approved we will ask for the Council’s approval for extension of the term of the ongoing Working Groups. We will also recommend that the next committee’s term comprises 4 years terminating in an ICG to be held in 2026.

These proposals and recommendations take into account the huge level of uncertainty involved in the organization of large events, including the well-being of conference attendees, the fact that field visits are integral to the success of our geomorphology conferences, the economic situation of participants and hosts, the provision of adequate recompense (intellectual, strategic and financial) for the local organizers putting in the hard work to host the conference, plus the longer term success of the IAG as an organisation and these arguments will be detailed during the Council Meeting.
Each NSM has been invited to send a delegate to the Council Meeting, if you think you should have been invited but have not received an email, please get in touch!
An announcement of the decisions at this meeting will be circulated shortly afterwards on the website and via geomorph-list.

Launching International Geomorphology Week 2021


International Geomorphology Week is celebrated during the first week of March of each year. Its aim is to promote geomorphology in all its forms, and mobilise the geomorphological community in general. Any geomorphology-themed activities held during this week can be declared a part of the International Geomorphology Week.

The first International Geomorphology Week was held in 2020 and despite the Covid-19 pandemic a few successful initiatives took place, including the Intensive Programme for the Young Geomorphologists of India (see:

For International Geomorphology Week 2021 the IAG will be organising regional geomorphology webinars, so please watch out for future announcements!

We are also keen for IAG National Scientific Members and Working Groups, academic institutions and research teams to organise their own events in 2021. We encourage initiatives around the theme of Women in Geomorphology, because in 2021 International Women’s Day falls within International Geomorphology Week. The type of events can be diverse (conferences, meetings, lectures, round tables, intensive courses etc.). So, please get in touch with us ( and start planning your 2021 event now! We aim to make this week a focus for the geomorphological community, so all ideas and initiatives are very welcome.

Report from the 19th Edition of the Joint Geomorphological Meeting

The IAG granted its auspices for the 19th Edition of the Joint Geomorphological Meeting (Italy, Romania, France, Belgium, Greece), took place in Buzău, Romania May 16-20 entitled “From field mapping and landform analysis to multi-risk assessment:challenges, uncertainties and transdisciplinarity”. Organized by the Institute of Geography (Romanian Academy) and the Faculty of Geography (Univ. of Bucharest) under the auspices of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) and the Geomorphologists Associations from Romania, Italy, France, Belgium and Greece, the Conference gathered together two scientific events with a long history – the 19th Joint Geomorphological Meeting Italy-Romania-France-Belgium-Greece andthe 34th Romanian National Symposium on Geomorphology, dedicated to 50 years of activity of Pătârlagele Natural Hazards Research Center.The Conference attracted 80 participants from 8 countries (Italy, France, Belgium, Greece, Japan, Canada, Poland and Romania), for two days of keynote lectures, oral and poster presentations alternating with two field trips in the Vrancea seismic region (the Curvature sector of the SE Carpathians). The conference aimed to encourage participation from all geomorphology fields, as well as inter- and transdisciplinary research, to provide a high-level but also a comfortable and friendly framework, to promote active discussions and challenging scientific debates. The topic of the conference was outlined by 7 keynote lectures:

  • Emil Sever Georgescu: Seismic landscape of Romania: challenges of a specific paradigm;
  • Monique Fort: Earthquakes impact on geomorphology (landforms and processes) in the Himalayas at different time scales;
  • Takashi Oguchi: Digital elevation models and their applications in geomorphology: historical review and future perspectives;
  • Alessandro Chelli: The activities of AIGeo Working Groups towards a new applied geomorphic map;
  • Olivier Dewitte: Landslide hazard assessment in an urban-sprawling context. A geomorphological approach in Bukavu, DR Congo;
  • Florin Pendea: Transdisciplinary approaches to advancing knowledge of glacio-isostatic rebound in Northern Canada;
  • Konstantinos Vouvalidis: Hydromorphological assessment of suburban torrents for flood protection: the flood event of West Attica, Greece).

In addition, 23 oral plenary presentations brought into discussions issues like tectonic jointing/control on large landslides occurrence/evolution, seismic landslides, the use of dendrochronology in the study of shallow and deep-seated slides or debris flows, glaciated karst, permafrost distribution modelling, improved landslide scarp detection, geoarchaeology and anthropogenic geomorphology, flood risk and reservoir siltation, anthropogenic subsidence,paleogeographic transformations, medium-term morphodynamics, natural variability and human influence in the evolution of deltas, variability in sediment budgets at river mouths, zoogeomorphic impact of animals in alpine environments or the use of multi-temporal satellite interferometry in landslide detection and monitoring, found their position in the multi-hazard paradigm. During a 3-hours long session, including 2-minute madness presentations, 25 posters with the following topics were intensely debated: fluvial multi-temporal evolution and risks (from fluvial terrace formation and channel forming and discharge to financial losses); snow avalanche susceptibility mapping; paleo-reconstruction of floodplains; coastal evolution patterns and nearshore sandbars positioning; mountain climate variability and its influence on permafrost and frost weathering; geomorphological assessments of major landslides and their role in relief evolution; neuro-fuzzy systems and neural network technology for drainage sub-basins classification and slope erosion by runoff analysis; changing Alpine glacier forelands; hillslope – river channel coupling, etc.

Two field trips were organized on Friday 18th May and Sunday 20th May, which provided a detailed image of the multi-hazard hotspot of Buzău Carpathians and Subcarpathians, on the conceptual framework of single-to-multi-hazard assessment and on the inter- and transdisciplinarity characteristics of geomorphology within a multi-risk approach. 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, modelling and validation of single and multi hazards are fitting perfectly within an extremely complex yet challenging system of approaches. The field trips were focused on high magnitude-low frequency landslides (deep seated, mainly dormant, with large reactivation potential) and their climatic and seismic triggers. Aspects concerning deepfocal seismicity, litho-structural conditioning, active and blind faults were also discussed. The human impact on the environment was emphasized through case-studies like road and reservoir construction. Morphodynamic mapping, landslide susceptibility and hazard scenarios,numerical and statistical models were detailed through field examples.

Following the active discussions held during both lectures and field trips, we are positive
that the conference opened new research ideas and collaboration initiatives. The 20th edition of the Joint Geomorphological Meeting will take place in Greece, organized by the Hellenic Committee for Geomorphology and Environment.

The conference is thought bringing together the closely related disciplines of Quaternary Sciences and Geomorphology, both dealing with the earth surface, its processes and related sediments.
The conference will present cutting edge research from both disciplines with their specific and individual perspectives. Oral presentations and poster sessions will be accompanied by a number of keynote lectures. Pre- and post-conference field trips and a public evening lecture will complement the scientific program.

The conference is open to all scientists interested in Geomorphology and Quaternary Sciences and especially young scientists are invited to participate!We are very much looking forward to welcome you in Giessen,
