British Society for Geomorphology Annual Conference 25-27 June 2012

Location and date: University of Nottingham 25-27 June 2012
Theme: “Are we putting the model cart before the data horse?” The ongoing debate between the relative importance of data and models is an issue that brings together all branches of Geomorphology and goes to the heart of what we do and why we do it. As with most debate the truth is likely somewhere in between the two end members, but can we focus in on exactly where in between this happy medium lies?

Submissions invited for oral and poster presentations around the 3 broad topics below:
• Data based studies of geomorphic processes and landforms
• Model based studies of geomorphic processes and landforms
• Combined data – model studies

Workshop announcement


Advances in River Science 2011 is an international workshop directed towards advancing integrated river and flood risk management. The workshop will focus on the role of sediments and habitat in increasingly complex, dynamic and natural-human hybrid river environments, and aims to (i) demonstrate best practice from around the world in key themed areas, including “Virtual catchments and data”, “River and catchment appraisal, typology and reconnaissance”, “Altered morphodynamics” and “Challenges to integrated management”; and (ii) to provide a forum for early-career researchers and practitioners to discuss ideas and approaches with established international leaders in their respective fields. The final day of the workshop is devoted to the identification of emerging research agendas, and further collaborative funding opportunities. The workshop will be held at Swansea University from 18-21 April 2011 and is sponsored by the UK Flood Risk Management Research Consortium. An outstanding group of keynote speakers, discussants and stakeholder representatives have now been confirmed, including David Maidment (Texas), Adrian McDonald (Leeds), Heye Bogena (Forschungszentrum Jülich), Dov Corenblit (Paris Diderot), David Gilvear (Stirling), Roy Richardson (SEPA), Dave Montgomery (Washington), Paul Bates (Bristol), Marcelo Garcia (Illinois), Jenny Mant (RRC), Hervé Piégay (CNRS), Gary Brierley (Auckland), Kevin Skinner (Atkins), Angela Gurnell (Queen Mary), John Rees (NERC/LWEC), Colin Thorne (Nottingham) and Ainun Nishat (BRAC).
