7th International Conference on
6 - 11 July 2009
friends and colleagues,
It gives me great pleasure to invite all of you
to attend the Seventh International Conference on Geomorphology in
This will be the first time our international conference has
been held in the Southern Hemisphere, and we are working hard to make sure that
all delegates have the chance to learn about, and experience first-hand, some of
our fascinating antipodean landscapes.
The conference will be held in a
brand-new, environmentally-certified Convention Centre, located on the banks of
the Yarra River, in the popular Southbank precinct of the city of Melbourne.
Fine accommodation, dining, shopping, and entertainment are all available close
to the conference venue.
The Organising Committee has been working hard
to develop a wide-ranging scientific program, and we are very grateful to those
of you who have proposed scientific sessions or who have agreed to be session
convenors. Our conference theme '*Ancient Landscapes - Modern Perspectives'
*reflects our location, but the program will be very wide ranging. Not least
this is because our colleagues in New Zealand are very much involved in
conference organization, and are offering delegates the opportunity to join
fieldtrips to their own very different and tectonically-active
I think that this will be a very exciting conference, and an
important chance for all of us to meet, discuss research issues in
geomorphology, and maintain or initiate international collaborations. The host
organization, the Australian and New Zealand Geomorphology Group, and the
members of the Organising Committee, very much look forward to welcoming you all
to Melbourne in July 2009.
