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.
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).

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.
The IAG Thematic Conference on Geomorphology “MONSOON CLIMATE, GEOMORPHOLOGIC PROCESSES AND HUMAN ACTIVITIES” was held in Nanjing, China, August 25-29, 2000.
