AIMS AND SCOPE The Geomorphometry 2011 conference will continue a series initiated by the Terrain Analysis and Digital Terrain Modelling conference hosted by Nanjing Normal University in November 2006 and University of Zurich in 2009.

The aim of Geomorphometry 2011 is to bring together researchers to present and discuss recent developments in the field of quantitative modelling and analysis of elevation data. Geomorphometry is the science of quantitative land-surface analysis and description at diverse spatial scales. It draws upon mathematical, statistical and image-processing techniques and interfaces with many disciplines including hydrology, geology, planetary geomorphology, computational geometry, geomorphology, remote sensing, geographic information science and geography. The conference aims to attract leading researchers in geomorphometry presenting methodological advances in the field and to provide young researchers with an opportunity to present new results.

Redlands is in San Bernardino County and at the eastern end of the S. Californian metropolis, some 100 km east of Los Angeles. It is between ‘The Badlands’ and the San Bernardino Mountains, beyond which is the Mohave Desert.

2 days of WORKSHOPS: Geomorphometry will host a number of workshops, each with ca. 15-30 attendees after the conference (weekend).

CONFERENCE REGISTRATION FEES:

  • PhD students: $200.00 USD
  • Everybody else: $375.00 USD

Registration fees for the workshops will be in the range $100-150 USD.
