Poster Presenter Guidelines

Poster presentations are organized in poster sessions with poster sessions belonging to the same overall topic organized in neighbouring poster areas. Each session is scheduled on a specific day at a specific time (time blocks 1–4). Thereby, each session has a display time (the actual date of display) as well as an authors in attendance time (the actual time of presentation). All poster sessions are scheduled in time blocks 1–5 in parallel to oral sessions. Poster boards are in landscape format, and authors can make use of the full dimensions of 80 cm width × 100 cm height. All the material necessary for attaching the poster to the poster board is available at the facility desk in the respective poster area. In addition, there are assistants to help authors put up or take down their posters. For each poster board, there is a desk to place the private notebook for additional presentations. European-type power sockets are available.

Sessions

Session No.1

Flash Flood Risk Management (Vulnerability, Mitigation and Adaptation)​

The organizer:

Dr. Samir Zaky KAMH

Assistant Professor of Environmental Geology Geology Department, Tanta University, Egypt.

  • skamh@science.tanta.edu.eg
  • skamh2002@yahoo.com
Proposal:

Flash floods are among the worst of natural disasters. This is primarily due to the rapidity of their occurrence, or the lack of warning time they usually allow before striking, as well as the high volume and speed of their flow currents. Their consequential impacts are, however, quite devastating. People are killed, power lines are knocked off and roads are destroyed. Flash floods risk assessment is, therefore, the core of the disaster risk management process. It leads to the identification of potential risk-reduction measures, which can help in defining the needs and requirements of safety. The topics included in this session are; flash flood vulnerability, risk assessment, risk management policy, Rainfall-runoff data analysis, RS and GIS flood zonation, environmental and economic impacts and flash flood benefits.

Session No.2

Karst Geomorphology (Processes, Environmental impacts, Economic Potentialities)​

The organizer:

Prof. Dr. Mortada El AREF

Prof. of Ore Geology, Geology Department, Cairo University, Egypt.

  • elarefmortada@yahoo.com​
Proposal:

Karst is the result of natural processes in and on the earth’s crust caused by solution and leaching of limestones, dolomites, gypsum, halite and other soluble rocks. These are very important natural processes and features. Karst phenomenon represents a significant economic, environmental and scientific value that has a direct impact on the surrounding environment and sustainable development programs. Therefore, this session strongly encourages researchers from all fields of research and pertinent authorities to study these phenomena and investigate solutions to their environmental problems. The term Karstology, which is usually used to refer to the investigation different aspects of karstification, also includes reference to results of studies in the fields listed below; that is: the relevant multi-discipline approaches, such as geomorphology, geography, topography, geology, sequence stratigraphy, hydrology, climatology, environments, engineering geology, land use planning, landscape scenery, heritages (geosites & geomorphsites, geoparks, protected areas).

Session No.3

Geoarchaeology in multi landscapes

The organizer:

Prof. Dr. Magdy TORAB

Prof. of Geomorphology, Geography Department, Damanhour University 

  • Torab.magdy@gmail.com
Proposal:

Geoarchaeology is an approach that uses the techniques and scientific contents of geography, geology and other Earth sciences in order to examine issues educated by archaeological knowledge and thought. This session deals with the physical processes that affect archaeological sites in different landscapes; including mountain landscapes, coastal landscapes, desert landscapes, glacial or semi glacial landscapes and riverine landscapes. It also deals with questions regarding the effects of human activities on archeological sites.

Session No.4

Man and Landscapes

The organizer:

Prof. Dr. Ismail Youssef ISMAIL

Menufia University, Egypt

  • Yossefegyptgeo@hotmail.com
Proposal:

This session deals with aspects of relation between man and landscapes in different areas and how cultural man made landscape was found. 

This session will discuss the role of human beings in naming places, their mental image of landscape, how man adjust himself with surrounding environment and get familiar with it.

The Man & Landscape Session will also show some types of urban landscapes in social areas and psychoeographic motives in urban setting.

Session No.5

Living with coasts and climate change

The organizers:

Prof. Dr. Mohamed Ibrahim Sharaf (*)

Prof. Dr. Mohamed Fouad Soliman (**)

(**) Prof. of Geomorphology, Geography Department & Dean of Faculty of Arts, El Arish University, Egypt: E-mail: M_me46@yahoo.com

Proposal:

This session is concerned with the following research topics:

  1. Damage caused by human activities on the coasts.
  2. Geomorphological Characteristics of the coastal environments.
  3. Coastal protection against natural and human processes. 
  4. Coasts and sustainable tourism development.
  5. Geomorphology of the coral reefs in the Red Sea..
  6. Coastal geomorphology  mapping.
  7. The impact of climate change on the coasts.
