Bouma Virtual Sampler Conference
20-22 April, 2022

1st Virtual Bouma meeting

Enduring logistical uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic prevent planning for an international conference at Utrecht University in the Netherlands for the foreseeable future. There is an unconditional desire to have the 1st Bouma Conference as a physical meeting where the international deep-water community can re-unite, and celebrate deep-water research with flume-laboratory workshops and demonstrations, fieldtrips, and face-to-face encounters with scientists who share a fascination for deep-water depositional systems. We therefore decided to postpone the planned 1st Bouma Conference, again, from April 2022 to April 2023

We see the 2022 Virtual Bouma Conference as a teaser for the First Bouma Conference in 2023 just to keep all students of deep-water sediments ‘online’. 

The virtual meeting is tentatively scheduled for the afternoons (Central European Time zone) on April 20 – 22 2022, allowing convenient time-slots for both Asian and American countries. 

Call for Abstracts

For the upcoming 20 - 22 of April 2022 virtual meeting we invite abstracts focusing on front-line advances in deepwater sedimentology including research of modern environments, process stratigraphy, flow processes, fluxes in submarine canyons, and applied uses of deep water sedimentology. Early-career-scientists are especially encouraged to submit an abstract of their research. The abstracts will be leading for the organizing committee towards further focusing the meeting into two or three comprehensive sessions (themes) and will include keynotes for each theme that will allow for timely discussion. 

Abstracts must be sent in pdf or word format using the submission form below to Submission deadline 31 January, 2022.
