INQUA ECR meeting (2-6 Dec 2013, Wollongong, Australia) and Quaternary International Special Issue

The INQUA Early Career Researcher inter-congress meeting will take place from 2 – 6 December, 2013 at Wollongong University, Australia. The meeting will bring together young earth scientists with a research focus on the Quaternary, from grad students to PostDocs. Thematic workshops on scientific writing and Quaternary science will be held and you’ll have the chance to discuss with colleagues fromn all over the world. The application deadline for travel support is 15 September, abstract submission and registration should be made before 1 October. There will be a Special Issue in INQUA’s journal Quaternary International in support of this meeting. This is a unique chance for ECRs, so spread the word and submit articles! 


If you want to submit an article to the Special Issue, please indicate so until 11 September. Ideal would be an earlier submission so that the reviewers comments can possibly be discussed during the workshops.
