State of geomorphological research in 2022

May 18 – 20, 2022 in Horní Bečva (Czech Republic)

Dear colleagues,

The forthcoming international conference State of geomorphological research in 2022 will be held in Horní Bečva, town in heart of Outer Western Carpathians in the Czech Republic.

Forthcoming event is organised bilaterally and should be perceived as the common conference of both Czech Association of Geomorphologists and Association of Slovak Geomorphologists. Considering the 2-year pause due to the world pandemics, it will be a round anniversary (20th in the line of meetings started in 2000) for the Czech Association of Geomorphologists, and it will also be the 11th biennial meeting for the Association of Slovak Geomorphologists.

We are very pleased to welcome 56 participants from 5 countries with contributions from geomorphology and related disciplines dealing with landscape development and its forming processes. We are also glad to welcome 1 winner of the student theses contest. We hope the conference will be pleasant and inspiring for you, also thanks to conference-evening and post‐conference field trip to the marvellous landscape in the heart of Czech Carpathians.

Conference will be preceded by a workshop focused on field survey methods, data acquisition and processing in fluvial geomorphology. We encourage students of master or postgraduate programme and early-career researchers (post-docs) to attend.

Conference will be preceded by the workshop “Methods in fluvial geomorphology” with 12 participants and 5 lecturers. More information is available in the workshop 3rd circular or on the workshop website.

Conference will be held under the auspices of the Czech Geographical Society.
