The Conference theme for this year is SOUTHERN AFRICAN GEOMORPHOLOGY: PURE AND APPLIED.

The following themes have been identified as being of interest for the submission of scientific posters and/or papers:

  • Soil erosion and rehabilitation in theory and practice
  • Bio-geomorphology: the use of plants to achieve geomorphic (landscape) objectives
  • Cold climate geomorphology
  • Fluvial geomorphology
  • The geomorphology of wetland systems
  • Coasts and coastal stability
  • Geomorphology in general

Please also bear in mind that work done elsewhere but that could be extended to Southern Africa in some form is also highly welcome.

  • All accepted abstracts will be published in both hard copy and electronically. The organisers¬† intend to produce conference proceedings of accepted submissions, but this will not NOT preclude authors from publishing their work in a slightly modified form elsewhere.
  • Authors must register for the conference by no later than 31 May 2017 otherwise their presentations will be removed from the official programme.
  • No last minute substitution of author/s will be accepted.
  • Papers previously published will not be accepted.
