The 50th annual conference of the German Society for Geomorphology will take place from October 9-12, 2024 at Leipzig University. The motto of the conference is "Legacies and emerging fields in Geomorphology". In addition to lectures and posters, there will be an icebreaker, a conference dinner and two field trips. Further, Ferdinand von Richthofen Gold Medal will be awarded for outstanding achievements in the field of geomorphological research.

DGGM 2024 – Legacies and emerging fields in Geomorphology

The conference is dedicated to the entire research spectrum on geomorphological archives, forms and processes at all possible spatial and temporal scales. Highly welcome are conceptual and methodological contributions to legacies and emerging fields in gravitational, aeolian, fluvial, periglacial, glacial, karst and coastal geomorphology, taking into account tectonic, climatic, biological or anthropogenic forcing parameters. This also considers emerging topics and interdisciplinary perspectives in geomorphology towards an anthropogenic world as well as shifting environmental and planetary boundary conditions.        

We particularly call on early-career scientists to actively participate in submitting poster and oral contributions.

In addition, we are offering a choice of two field trips on Saturday, October 12, 2024.

  • One field trip goes to the Mansfelder Land and addresses subrosion as georisk and the resulting archive potential.
  • The second field trip goes to the Weiße Elster floodplain and focuses on the Holocene fluvial geomorphodynamics and human activity.
  • The Ferdinand von Richthofen Gold Medal will be awarded at the 50th annual meeting on Thursday, October 10, 2024 at 5 p.m. The medal is awarded for outstanding achievements in the field of geomorphological research.
  • The DGGM General Assembly will then take place at 6 p.m. as part of the annual conference.

We look forward to your participation in Leipzig 2024 and remain with best regards.
