10th International Conference of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG)

Coimbra, Portugal
E-Mail address


Date: 12-16 September 2022
Venue:  Convento São Francisco, Coimbra, Portugal


The 10th International Conference of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) will take place in Coimbra (Portugal) from 12 to 16 September 2022, under the theme "Geomorphology and Global Change".

We anticipate a bustling scientific programme representing the latest innovations in theoretical, methodological and applied approaches in geomorphology. The organizers, APGeom, are proud that the conference will take place in Coimbra – a medium-sized city, rich in history and heritage, and strongly connected with its university, one of the oldest in Europe (730 years old) and a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2013.

Our programme will include opportunities to explore the diverse geomorphology of Portugal – from the mountains of Minho, through the Central Cordillera, passing carbonate and karstified massifs, quartzitic mountains and by the plateaus of "Meseta" and Alentejo, down to a coastline with beach-dune systems, cliffs and estuaries of ecological value.

Field trips such as to the Serra da Estrela, Cape Verde and Azores islands, etc. will be proposed around the conference dates and the usual opportunity will be offered to young geomorphologists to participate in a one-week intensive training course associated with the conference.
