Other Conferences

Palaeofloods VI

On behalf of the Organising Committee for the 6th International Palaeoflood Conference, we extend a warm invitation to join us at Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand for Palaeofloods VI, 29-31 January 2020. The theme for this event is understanding the past to prepare for the future. The need for robust reconstructions of flood histories is ever more pressing in an era of rapid global change. Improved understanding of past river behaviour and flood series extension are required to properly inform and prepare river managers, and society as a whole, for what the future may bring for our rivers and floodplains.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Anyone working on floods: past, present, and future. The conference theme aims to emphasise the inherent value in understanding flood histories in order to better understand future floods and prepare society for these events. Pure and applied research that is broadly relevant to this theme is welcome.

Please see the conference website for further details of the programme including fieldtrips, abstract submission and registration:

Key dates:

Invite for ANZGG members

The British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) was established in 1960 and has a current membership of around 600 from around the world.  The society promotes a range of activities for geomorphologists including:

- an annual conference - usually in September, and including professional development workshops

- support for research - in 2015 we disbursed £60,000 in grants

- provision of resources for outreach activities

- publications - including the BSG journal Earth Surface Processes and Landforms (ESPL), and the online publication Geomorphological Techniques.

The BSG is seeking to strengthen their relationships with other groups and societies around the world with a similar focus on geomorphology. To facilitate this, the BGS is offering all ANZGG members the opportunity to attend their Annual Conference at the BSG members rate – typically a discount of ~ 25 % on the full registration. 

In order to qualify for the conference discount, ANZGG members will need to provide confirmation that they are current members of the ANZGG, such as an email from the membership secretary or a copy of the program from the last ANZGG meeting identifying you as a presenter. To qualify for full BSG member benefits (e.g. to apply for research grants, or gain free online access to ESPL) ANZGG members will need to join the BSG first – the full member subscription is currently £30 per year.
