We are pleased to invite you to the XXI INQUA Roma Congress which will be held in Roma between 13th to 20th of July 2023. We strongly believe that in-person conferences provide unique opportunities for networking and collaboration; therefore, despite the uncertainty linked to the circumstances related to the future pandemic in summer 2023, in agreement with INQUA officials, we are planning an in-person meeting with a full scientific program, including plenary talks, session keynotes, symposia, courses, and abstracts.
All the necessary information regarding workshop topics, event format and schedule, as well as online registration and abstract submission is provided in the attached First Circular. We offer a very ambitious program around the theme “Time for Change” emphasizing the critical role of Quaternary sciences in contributing the knowledge we need to face current societal and climate challenges. Please submit your proposal by 31th of March at firstname.lastname@example.org, according to the instructions provided in the First Circular.
We look forward to welcoming you in Roma!

Optical dating in earth sciences and archaeology
Luminescence dating is an important tool for studying the Quaternary. Classical luminescence dating dates when a grain of sand was last exposed to sunlight and subsequently buried, enabling
researchers to address many questions in areas of Earth and environmental sciences as well as archaeological contexts. Additionally, the versatility of the luminescence signal allows for novel
questions to be addressed – from soil mixing rates to geological uplift rates to sediment provinancing to dating of geological and archaeological rock surfaces.
This course will provide an introduction to the principles and potential applications and limitations of optical dating. Beginning with an overview of the principles of the method, the many potential applications of luminescence methods will be discussed through case studies. Practical insights into OSL sampling in field contexts, sample preparation and environmental dose rate determination will be provided. After the course, the student will understand the principles, limitations, and potential applications of luminescence dating, be capable of critically assessing methods-based scientific papers and has basic knowledge about correct OSL sampling in geological and archaeological contexts.
Short course SS 2022 in English (2.5 hours equivalent, 5 ECTS points)
Date: 27th of June – 1st of July, 2022
