Mid-European Geomorphology Meeting:
Austria and Switzerland are engaged in the scientific organising committee with their national presidents Prof. Jan-Christoph Otto (A) and Prof. Cristian Scapozza (CH) and are partner countries in the meeting.

Hybrid Conference:
We are planning a hybrid conference with people attending in person but also virtually. We are prepared to also switch to a virtual conference if a hybrid mode becomes impossible.

Optimistic Assumption & Flexibility:
Vaccination is successfully accomplished in Germany, Austria and Switzerland until end of September according to the governmental plans and scientific meetings are again allowed. The present situation requires flexibility in terms of planning details and modi.
