Virtual DEUQUA conference 2021

Dear Quaternary Enthusiasts,
We are very pleased to announce the date of the virtual meeting of the German Quaternary Association (DEUQUA) that will take place from 2021-09-30 to 2021-10-01. Due to the ongoing pandemic situation with uncertain prospects for travelling, the meeting will be moved into the virtual space (vDEUQUA2021). We especially encourage young scientists to present their research and get in touch with actual issues of Quaternary research.
The programme will consist of “classical” oral presentations with subsequent discussion, and short presentations with the opportunity for discussions in individual chats. The preferred presentation language is English, but also German contributions are welcome. For the evening 2021-09-30 we plan a virtual get-together. Further information will be circulated soon. Alternatively, you can check the conference website for always up-to-date news: https://vdeuqua2021.sciencesconf.org.

Stay healthy, stay safe and keep in touch,
Your vDEUQUA2021 organisers on behalf of the DEUQUA board,

Hans von Suchodoletz, Elisabeth Dietze, Michael Dietze, Dominic Hildebrandt, Sebastian Kreutzer, Julia Meister, Claudia Wrozyna, Christian Zeeden

 

DEUQUA "Connecting Geoarchives" 2022 in Potsdam

The DEUQUA2020 “Connecting Geoarchives” will be postponed to September 25-29, 2022 due to the restrictions on infection prevention and the prevailing desire for a face-to-face event with fieldtrips. Registration for DEUQUA2020 in 2022 will be activated in spring 2022. The latest information is available via the conference homepage https://www.geo-x.net/en/deuqua2020/.


Communinty. Exchange. Research

The German Quaternary Association (Deutsche Quartärvereinigung, DEUQUA e.V.) is the official union of German speaking Quaternary scientists. The aim of the Association is to support Quaternary science, to present it to the public, to intensify contacts to the applied sciences, and to provide advice to public and political authorities on issues related to Quaternary science. Furthermore, the Association supports networking among Quaternary scientists and related organizations worldwide.

E&G Quaternary Science Journal

DEUQUA publishes the peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary open-access journal E&G Quaternary Science Journal twice per year.


EGQSJ publishes peer-reviewed articles and express reports, as well as thesis abstracts related to Quaternary geology, paleo-environments, paleo-ecology, soil science, paleo-climatology, geomorphology, geochronology, archaeology, and geoarchaeology focussing on, but not limited to, research from central Europe.

Q13 - Paleoclimate changes, landscape evolution and human societies: from sedimentary basins to industrial landscapes

STRASBOURG 14-18 MARCH 2022
Quaternaire 13 Palaeoclimate changes, landscape evolution and human societies:
from sedimentary basins to industrial landscapes

The Institute Laboratoire Image Ville Environnement (LIVE - UMR 7362, CNRS, University of Strasbourg and École Nationale du Génie de l’Eau et de l’Environnement de Strasbourg) organizes on 14-18 March 2022 in Strasbourg the thirteenth AFEQ - international conference: «Q13 - Paleoclimate changes, landscape evolution and human societies: from sedimentary basins to industrial landscapes».

The conference will focus on:
- climate change and landscape evolution at the Quaternary timescale
- interactions between climate, environments and human populations
- impacts of human societies on landscapes and anthropization processes

Its objectives are to provide an overview of both novel research carried out in the various branches of the Quaternary, and advances in associated scientific methods (development, application). In addition, it will focus on regional-scale studies and approaches, with an opening towards modern - in particular urban - environments. The Q13 meeting will have a strong international dimension, which reflects the strategic position of Strasbourg at the heart of Europe. In particular, scientific communities of bordering countries (Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg,...) are highly welcome to take part in this conference.

Please find all details in the first circular below.
