The Neptune Workshops both face-to-face and online wish to create an international community of researchers experts in multidisciplinary studies of ancient submerged landscapes and their evolution, geomorphological processes and human impacts on the coastal areas. We aim to promote a transdisciplinary approach to underwater paleo-landscape reconstruction by means of innovative technologies integrated with well-consolidated methods
Napoli (IT) Meeting, 27 and 28 September, 2022 We are pleased to invite you to attend the 3rd International Neptune Workshop “Reconstructing Coastal paleo-landscapes: shelf to shore, data to model” that will be held in Naples, 27 and 28 September 2022. The 3rd Neptune workshop aims to create a forum regarding a wide range of thematic topics related to climate and coastal studies such as: • Paleo-environmental reconstruction in coastal areas from backshore to offshore; • Records of sea-level changes and paleo sea-level studies; • From past to future coastal scenarios; • Adaptation of coastal communities to climate and coastal changes; • Technological advances in marine and coastal studies; • Use of remote sensing datasets in coastal studies; • Interdisciplinary collaboration in coastal research; The Workshop is organized in two days: 27 September 2022 – 20 Oral presentations of participants (12 minutes + 3 minutes Q&A) and a Poster Session.Oral presentations of participants (12 minutes + 3 minutes Q&A) and a Poster Session. 28 September 2022 – Field survey in a very shallow water sector along Naples coasts by means of robotic technologies (USV and/or ROV) designed at Parthenope University. As one of NEPTUNE’s scopes is to support the early-career members of its interdisciplinary community, ECRs and PhD students are strongly invited to apply for a GRANT. The INQUA GRANTS are finalized to cover travel, accommodation, and subsistence of participants. Grants will be assigned by the scientific committee as described in the attached flyer. If you like to present your research, please send an ABSTRACT (max 300 words and one figure) to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org by using the attached template for compiling your abstract. Deadline for submission is 30 May 2022. The conference is free of charge. However, considering the COVID-related restrictions, those who want to participate, are kindly asked to complete the online registration form by 10 July 2022. Link to form We hope you will take the opportunity to participate in this meeting.
Online Meeting, December 2nd, 2021 We are pleased to invite you to attend the 2nd NEPTUNE international workshop that will be held online 2 December, 2021. The motto is “a glimpse into the past, a step into the future” because we wants to face the challenge of understanding the past coastal processes in order to reconstruct past seascapes and predict future environmental-change scenarios by integrating field-collected data and climatic models on regional or global scale. The aim is to create a discussion opportunity regarding a wide range of topics related to climate and coastal studies such as: - Records of sea-level changes and paleo sea-level studies; - From past to future coastal scenarios; - Sea-level and coastal response to past and future climate changes; - Recent climatic influence on coastal modification; - Analyzing coastal landscapes from backshore to offshore; - Adaptation of coastal communities to climate and sea-level changes; - Technological advances in marine and coastal studies; - Discrepancies between geological sea-level indicators and sea-level models; - Use of remote sensing datasets for sea-level and ice-sheet modelling; - Interdisciplinary collaboration in sea-level research. We hope you will take the opportunity to participate in this meeting. To join the event click here: Teams link For more details download flyer PDF Top
Online Meeting, September 3rd, 2020 To react to the health crisis due to COVID19, we organize the first meeting online. In detail, it will be divided in two parts: PART#1- Oral presentation of the research activities of each participant PART#2- Online panel discussion about the open issues that the researchers normally face during their activities. A dedicated special issue on Quaternary International will be planned at the end of the online meeting
