2004 Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium 'Weathering and Landscape Evolution

Grants and Contracts Details


2004 Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium "Weathering and Landscape Evolution' The Department of Geography, University of Kentucky, will host the 2004 Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium on the theme of Weathering and Landscape Evolution. This meeting will be held on the University of Kentucky campus, on 1-3 October, 2004. The Binghamton Geomorphology Symposium series, so named for its origin at the Binghamton University in 1970, is the oldest and most prestigious geomorphology specialty conference in the world. Proceedings of the Binghamton Geomorphology Symposia contain some of the most fundamental and widely-cited contributions to the earth sciences of the past three decades. Symposia topics have covered a wide range of sub-disciplines within geomorphology, such as fluvial geomorphology (2002) or ice sheet dynamics (2003), but to date there has never been a symposium devoted to the topic of weathering geomorphology. The format of the Binghamton Symposium series is a conference hosted over three days, during which time a number of invited speakers present oral presentations, with the majority of the attendees presenting posters. In this way, many of the most eminent researchers congregate to discuss the state-of-the-art in their field, to an international group of geomorphologists, who in turn present their recent findings. The proceedings include papers from the invited lecturers, published both as a special issue of the journal Geomorphology and as a hardcover volume published by Elsevier Scientific Publishers. The mission of the Binghamton steering committee is to ensure a diverse list of speakers, both national and international, both male and female, and both mature and in the early stages of their career. The steering committee has endorsed the symposium in the University of Kentucky in 2004. Binghamton Geomorphology Symposia generally attract 200 people (up to 400), many of whom make poster presentations. The organizing committee in the University of Kentucky is committed to ensuring participation of a broad a group of scientists, in particular students, through efforts to maintain low costs for participants and offering maximum discounts for student attendees.
