59th British Sedimentological Research Group Annual General Meeting

Dates: 20th – 23rd December 2020

Venue: Online with sedsonline.com 

Why attend BSRG 2020?

The BSRG AGM is a great chance to catch up on all the latest developments in UK and broader sedimentological and stratigraphic research, or present your own research results in a conference environment with a long tradition of supporting early-career researchers and postgraduate students. Aside from the research content, the meeting is also a good opportunity to connect and network with lots of other sedimentary geology researchers in the UK and more widely. 

Conference Format, Registration and Abstract Submission

Given recent announcements about Covid-19 restrictions in the UK and elsewhere the conference will be entirely online, with a single session AM and PM each day, plus online poster sessions, and plenty of time allocated for discussion and debate. You can register for the conference here https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeiWFf9zs4B7FVmpJ1jwhm_wN9hv01PG9go3U67seHoYamPTA/viewform?embedded=true and also submit an abstract for a presentation. Maximum abstract length is 2500 characters and see the list of sessions below for indication of suitable topics.

If you would like feedback on your abstract and a chance to revise it before final submission, please submit it using the above link by the end of 20th October.

Final submission deadline for abstracts is November 20th.

Final deadline for conference registration will be 18th December, unless numbers require registrations to be closed earlier. Register early to avoid disappointment.

Scientific Sessions

We have the following preliminary plan for sessions:

Session TitleSession Explanation
Siliciclastic Systems and Strata Processes, environments, and a products in siliciclastic systems. All settings and all scales welcome
Carbonate Systems and Strata Processes, environments, and products in carbonate systems. All settings and scales welcome
Burial Processes and Products Diagenetic processes in siliciclastic and carbonate strata, and related resevoirs properties for flow, extraction and sequestration
Communicating Sedimentology: Best Practice and Case Studies How can we best communicate the various aspects of sedimentology to effectively educate and influence opinion and policy? Case studies on contentious issues welcome 
"Seds and the City": Impact of Humans on Sedimentary Systems The sedimentary record of human impact on the environment, the onset of Anthropocene, predictions and mitigation and clean-up for the future 
The Big Challenge: Defining the Direction and Purpose of Sedimentology Society is changing, we need to change too: in what directions should sedimentology go grow its relevance and impact? 

We will be contacting people to act as session chairs, but if you would like to volunteer, please do contact us and let us know.
