Conference MARID VII, 3-5 April 2023, Rennes, France

MARID VII will be held in Rennes, France, on April 3-5, 2023  and is organised by the Institute of Physics of Rennes and Geosciences Rennes Laboratory (University of Rennes 1) and the French Naval Hydrographic and Oceanographic Office (SHOM). 
Scientific sessions will take place in the Beaulieu Scientific Campus on 3 and 4 April 2023 including talks from keynote speakers and oral and poster presentations by delegates. On 5 April a field trip is planned to the Mont-Saint-Michel Bay to allow a convivial exchange between participants. 
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.
Three speakers are already scheduled to give keynote lectures: Nathalie Vriend (Cambridge, UK), Bruno Andreotti (Paris, France), Jim Best (University of Illinois, US).
The conference is open to all professionals and stakeholders dealing with bedform dynamics.

marid.net is 5 years old!

Five years ago, we created marid.net with the aim to:

  • Provide a focus and a communication platform for international research on sedimentary bedform dynamics
  • To share information on tools and best practice that will aid the efficiency and consistency of research methods.
  • To support early-career scientists in their research through travel grant opportunities, promotion of their work and networking opportunities

To celebrate the big birthday, the website was entirely updated.

To keep the website up-to-date and alive, we need YOUR input! Let us know if you have a new project, toolbox or publication (maridwebsite@gmail.com).

You can also sign up to the MARID newsletter (we send 3 to 4 emails per year with all the latest news).

MARID VI Special Issue is published!

I am very happy to let you know that the Special Issue published in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms following the MARID VI conference in Bremen in 2019 is now published!

MARID VII will take place in 2023 in Brittany, France

Thierry Garlan and the organising committee from the Université de Rennes, France, have announced that the next MARID will not take place in 2022 as initially planned, but in 2023. This is due to the report of many conferences to 2021 and 2022 after the cancellation of most conferences in 2020. It is also to allow researchers who were delayed due to facilities closure and care duties to carry on their work and present new exciting results at the 7th International Conference on Marine and River Dune Dynamics in 2023.

Thierry Garlan and the organising committee of MARID VII are looking forward to welcoming you in Brittany in 2023.
