MARIDVI: Second Call for Abstracts

The 6th edition of the international Conference series on Marine and River Dune Dynamics (MARID), will take place at Haus der Wissenschaft, Bremen, on 1 and 2 April 2019, with an icebreaker on 31 March and a field excursion on 3 April. The aim of this meeting is to encourage effective communication between physicists, geologists, biologists and modellers to improve our understanding of bedform dynamics, with particular attention to societal relevance. For more information, visit our website: https://www.marum.de/en/Research/MARID.html

Three speakers are already scheduled to give keynote lectures: Prof Dr Cheng Heqin (East China Normal University), Assoc Prof Pieter C. Roos (University of Twente) and Prof Dr Dan Parsons (University of Hull).

A short course on Bedforms-ATM, an open-source software developed to standardise the scale-based discrimination of bedforms, will also be offered free of charge.

MARIDVI will award student travel grants to young scientists contributing to the meeting. Please forward this invitation to your colleagues and students!

Submission of abstracts for oral or poster presentations is due by Tuesday 30 October 2018. Please use the template, and keep to a length of 2 to 6 pages. We encourage the inclusion of figures. The online submission form is available via https://www.marum.de/en/Research/MARID/Abstract.html

If you have any questions, feel free to send an e-mail to marid@marum.de

Hoping to see you in Bremen,
