This year's Annual Meeting of the British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) will be held at Plymouth University (UK) from the 5th -7th  September 2016 and we welcome oral or poster presentations on any aspect of geomorphology. 

The conference offers the following highlights:

- Open themed, single session conference: disseminate your research widely within geomorphology!

- Early Career Researcher training session on ‘Communicating Geomorphology within and beyond the classroom’: enhance your REF- and TEF-friendliness!

- Supplementary final afternoon session on the ‘Hydrogeomorphology of Flood Risk’, held jointly with the British Hydrological Society and highly suitable as CPD credits;

- Optional field trip ‘Moor to See’ (4th Sept), focussed on reinterpreting the ‘classic’ geomorphology of Dartmoor through modern advances in field techniques;

- An art exhibition highlighting how greater engagement with the arts can help to raise the visibility of geomorphology, both literally and metaphorically;

- Keynote addresses by this year’s BSG award winners, including:

      David Linton Award: Professor Jean Poesen (Leuven);

      Gordon Warwick Award: Dr Doug Jerolmack (Pennsylvania)

      Wiley Award: Dr Hervé Guillon (Savoie)

      Dick Chorley Award: Dr Jeremy Ely (Sheffield)

- A social programme centred in Plymouth's historic Barbican area, with the Conference Dinner among the fishes in the National Marine Aquarium.
