We welcome you to the university town of Giessen, which is located in the heart of Europe and offers a great diversity of landscapes.
The conference is organized by the German Association on Geomorphology (AKG – Deutscher Arbeitskreis für Geomorphologie) and the German Quaternary Association (DEUQUA – Deutsche Quartärvereinigung), and will be hosted by the Department of Geography, Justus-Liebig-University Giessen.
For the first time, the conference is arranged as a joint conference of AKG and DEUQUA, bringing together the closely related disciplines of Quaternary Sciences and Geomorphology, both dealing with the earth surface, its processes and related sediments. Following this idea, the theme of the conference is
Geomorphology and Quaternary Sciences:
Following this motto, 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,
on behalf of the organizing committee
