IPA-IAG Agreement – Early Career Researcher Conference Travel Grants For 9th International Conference on Geomorphology – New Delhi, India, 6-11 November 2017

According to the recently established IPA-IAG Agreement, the International Permafrost Association (IPA) offers 2 travel grants of 300 euros to Early Career Researchers to take part in the 9th International Conference on Geomorphology (ICG2017) on “Geomorphology and society” (New Delhi, India, November 2017). The International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG/AIG) will cover the costs for Registration Fee to the grant winners.

The grants will be devoted to support the active participation (oral or poster presentation) of 2 early career researchers* whose interests intersect with those of the two associations, generally in the area of glacial and periglacial research.

The submission and acceptance of an abstract and the active participation in the conference (with oral or poster presentation) are mandatory to receive this support. Early career researchers based in the organizing country for the international conference are not eligible for this support.

Candidates for GRANTS are requested to submit the following documents before 30 April 2017:

The above mentioned documents should be submitted to the IPA Secretariat at contact@ipa-permafrost.org (please specify IPA-IAG Grants – INDIA 2017 in the subject of the accompanying e-mail).

The Conference on Geomorphology will take place in New Delhi at Vigyan Bhawan. Organized by the Indian Institute of Geomorphologists and open to all scientists and practitioners, it will include scientific sessions, keynote lectures as well as a special Session and an Intensive Course for Young Geomorphologists dealing with ‘Geomorphology Field Training in tectonically active mountain regions’, co-sponsored by the European Geosceinces Union (EGU). Field trips will be arranged in various parts of India and neighbouring countries, before, during and after the Conference.

For further information on the Conference, please visit the IAG/AIG website http://www.geomorph.org/ and the Conference website http://www.icg2017.com

The 11th IAG/AIG SEDIBUD (Sediment budgets in Cold Environments) Workshop will be held between 5-8 September 2017 at the Research Base of the Babeş-Bolyai University (UBB), located in Baru (Hunedoara County, Romania). It will bring together researchers from various scientific fields with special interest and studies concerning the sediment transfer processes and budgets under changing climate and vegetation cover conditions in high latitude/high altitude cold environments worldwide.

A one-day field trip will be organized in Parâng Mountains (Southern Carpathians), aiming at introducing the participants within the morphoclimatic context of the alpine areas in Carpathians. Several sites with past and contemporary geomorphic process activity (rock falls, rock avalanches, debris flows, snow avalanches, periglacial activity etc.). The participants will get also an overview of the complex interactions between the sediment transfer processes and the mountain ecosystems (alpine meadows, subalpine shrubs and coniferous forests).

For further information on the Workshop, please visit the IAG SEDIBUD Working Group webpage http://www.geomorph.org/sedibud-working-group/

Applicants (with a special interest in the topic of the Workshop to be proved by their CV) are requested to submit the following files before 31 May 2017
