The Institute Laboratoire Image Ville Environnement (LIVE – UMR 7362, CNRS, University of Strasbourg and École Nationale du Génie de l’Eau et de l’Environnement de Strasbourg) organizes on 14-18 March 2022 in Strasbourg the thirteenth AFEQ – international conference: « Q13 – Paleoclimate changes, landscape evolution and human societies: from sedimentary basins to industrial landscapes ».
The conference will focus on:
• climate change and landscape evolution at the Quaternary timescale
• interactions between climate, environments and human populations
• impacts of human societies on landscapes and anthropization processes
Its objectives are to provide an overview of both novel research carried out in the various branches of the Quaternary, and advances in associated scientific methods (development, application). In addition, it will focus on regional-scale studies and approaches, with an opening towards modern – in particular urban – environments.
The Q13 meeting will have a strong international dimension, which reflects the strategic position of Strasbourg at the heart of Europe. In particular, scientific communities of bordering countries (Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg,…) are highly welcome to take part in this conference.
