2nd call for papers: ICCE symposium on the "Sensitivity of erosion and sediment transport to recent climate change"
This is the 2nd call for papers for the symposium of the IAHS International Commission on Continental Erosion (ICCE) that we’re proud to host at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Germany, on July 24th-26th, 2024. The submission deadline (March 3rd) is fast approaching; while it may be that this deadline will be extended, the deadline for the hotel rooms we have pre-reserved for conference participants (see conference website) cannot be postponed as the meeting will take place during the main summer holiday period in Germany. It is therefore recommended to consider registering before the initial deadline passes.
As the anthropogenic alteration of global climate and its specific regional features become more and more evident, the symposium aims to shed light on recent progress and research avenues regarding the sensitivity of erosion and sediment transport to recent climatic and environmental changes. This topic spans multiple compartments of geosystems such as:
- processes on hillslopes and slope stability
- fluvial processes, river planform changes and sediment budgets
- aeolian sediment dynamics
Consequently, we’re open for contributions related to different environments of the Earth and hope to stimulate discussion and collaboration. As many of the aforementioned processes affect human life, societies and economy, we are interested in both basic and applied research. Your presentation might also show methodological innovations leading to better measurements and understanding of erosion and sediment transport in the past, present and future.
The venue is located in central Bavaria, between Munich and Nuremberg (airports) and can be reached by national and international train connections. Please visit our conference website https://www.ku.de/icce2024, get informed, and consider registering for this international yet familiar event !
Early-career colleagues from disadvantaged countries are eligible for applying for a Sivapalan Young Scientist Award (SYSTA) travel grant for which the deadline is February 16th, 2024. More information regarding funding support will be posted on the registration website.
Looking forward to meeting you !
