The International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) announces the offering of 2 travel grants of 400 € (four hundred Euros) to support the participation of two Young Geomorphologists* from Latin America countries (including Brazil) in the 14th SINAGEO, the National Symposium of Geomorphology in Brazil (Corumbá, 24-30 August 2023).
The 14th SINAGEO is organized by the União da Geomorfologia Brasileira (Brazilian Geomorphological Union) along with the University of Mato Grosso do Sul (UFMS). The focus of that edition is “Geomorphology of Wetlands in the Context of Environmental Changes”, with highlights given to the Pantanal (the largest wetland in the world) and its interactions with current environmental changes. The theme reflects the concerns about the connections between geomorphology and environmental problems, not only in Pantanal, but in the surrounding mountain areas that contribute for a better understanding of environmental changes in this biome. The program includes key-lectures by Brazilian and foreign speakers, short-courses, field trips, workshops, special sessions, and oral and poster presentations. Except for foreign guest appearances, the event will be held in Portuguese.
The two Young Geomorphologists will be granted free admission to the conference, along with access to various activities including a short course of their choice from the event’ list, a one-day field trip to Urucum Massif, and the social dinner. Moreover, they will be able to attend Delta-H, which is a one-day post-conference focused on Quantitative Geomorphology and Landscape Evolution (https://www.deltahbrasil.com). For further information on the 14th SINAGEO, please visit: https://www.sinageo.org.br/en/.
