British Society for Geomorphology Annual Conference 2024

2-5 September, Loughborough University.

We look forward to welcoming you to Loughborough for the 2024 Annual Conference of the British Society for Geomorphology and the Cuchlaine King Symposium!

This year the British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) Annual Conference, incorporating the 2nd Cuchlaine King Symposium, will be hosted by Loughborough University.

The BSG Annual Conference is the most important event in the BSG calendar, bringing together geomorphology researchers and professionals to share their work and network with peers. This year’s event will have a uniquely Loughborough flavour.

The oral and poster presentation sessions provide an excellent opportunity to share your latest research and practice, while the early career researcher and professional geomorphology workshops will offer a great chance to develop technical and transferable skills alongside new or familiar peers.

We will celebrate the BSG Medal and Award winners through keynote presentations, and look forward to hosting the second ever Cuchlaine King Symposium, supported by Earth Surface Processes and Landforms, which this year has the theme ‘Extreme Events in Geomorphology’.

There will be a pre-conference fieldtrip to Charnwood Forest which will explore links between geomorphological processes and the special geology in the Loughborough area.

The BSG Annual Conference has long provided a platform for early career researchers to share their work in a collegial and supportive environment, and we particularly welcome contributions from early career researchers and practitioners.

The Conference will have an online element, enabling virtual attendance for those who cannot join in person.


We welcome abstract submissions from all aspects of Geomorphology.

Please submit your 250 word abstract by 1 July 2024.
