Abstract deadline: 15 May 2011

The workshop will be centered on open debates, round-table discussions and exchange of ideas on a wide range of topics related to the Regional Climate Dynamics during the Pleistocene and Holocene in the mountain environments of the Carpathian and Balkan ranges - the least studied mountain areas of Europe. The contributions shall focus mainly on palaeoenvironment and the main objective is to bring together researchers interested in sharing latest advances in the study of these regions, and for providing synergies for interdisciplinary international collaborations.

Field excursions to the formerly glaciated alpine ranges of the Northern Romanian Carpathians as well as to several large peat-bog accumulations and wetland ecosystems are also planned.

The Workshop will be held in the venue of University of Suceava, in the historic capital of the province of Bucovina, a land famous for picturesque landscapes and for the highest density of UNESCO monuments in Eastern Europe.
