The 8th IAG International Conference on Geomorphology – Geomorphology and Sustainability, Paris, France, 27-31 August, 2013

The 8th International Conference on Geomorphology of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) took place in Paris at the Cité des Sciences de La Villette from August 27 to 31, 2013. The main topic of this 8th Conference was “Geomorphology and Sustainability“. Organized by the Groupe Français de Géomorphologie (GFG) and open to all scientists and practitioners, this Conference included 26 scientific sessions, 5 key-note lectures and one Workshop devoted to Young Geomorphologists.


Convenors: Etienne COSSART, Johnny DOUVINET & Stuart LANE

This session welcomed young scientists (PhD students, post-doctorates) who were interested in discussing new approaches and methods in geomorphology (spatial analysis, mathematical modelling, conceptual and quantitative approaches and links between them). Presentations could focus on any component of the discipline and related earth sciences (hydrology, Quaternary geology, soil sciences, etc.), and be either fundamental or applied. Preliminary results and discussions of fieldwork and methodological strategies (observation, data acquisition before modelling) were appropriate, as well as methodological developments, such as geomorphic mapping through GIS. Equally, numerical simulation approaches such as those linked to complexity theory (agent-based modelling, Cellular Automata) or physically-based methods for specific process representations have been welcomed. The participants of this session have been invited to participate to the intensive course for young geomorphologists held at the end of the conference (from September 1st to 3rd).


FORMOSE Post-graduate Training School: Costal hazard assessment and management, Caen, France, 19-25 June 2011

The Training School was organized by the European Centre on Geomorphological Hazards (CERG, Strasbourg, France) – which is one of the centres of the EUR-OPA Agreement of the Council of Europe – in close collaboration with the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Insular Coastal Dynamics (ICoD, Valletta, Malta) and the European Centre on Coastal Risks (CerCo, Biarritz, France). The aim of the course was to provide the participants with updated knowledge on traditional and innovative multi-disciplinary methods and techniques for the analysis of geomorphological coastal instability processes and related hazards and risks.

BSG Post-Graduate Research Training Workshop – Windsor, UK, 13-16 December 2010

The Workshop was organised by the British Society for Geomorphology (incorporating the former BGRG) and recognised by the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG). There will be sessions about starting research, designing research projects, methodological issues, modelling, fieldwork problems and remedies, presentations techniques, time management, and workshops for project organisation and discussion of individual projects
