    The theme of the proposed congress is “a Mediterranean perspective to Quaternary Sciences” and we strongly believe that the Mediterranean region, so geologically young and active, is the ideal place where to discuss the processes and events that shaped the landscape, the  environment and the ecosystems in the last 2.58 million years.

    From the glacial systems in the Alps to the desert facing the southern shore, from the large coastal plains and deltas to the rocky coasts where the mountain ranges reach the sea, from the karst to the lacustrine to the volcanic environments, almost all of the Quaternary features are present  in the region.

    The bid is presented by Sapienza University, the National Research Council and the Italian Association for Quaternary Studies and has been prepared enthusiastically by the whole body of Italian Quaternary scientists. It is supported by the main scientific societies and governmental institutions dealing with Quaternary themes as well as by many countries from around the Mediterranean.

    Sapienza University of Rome is the largest university in Europe; its main campus is an architectural masterpiece of the rationalist style and is a wall-encircled cluster of buildings with 11 faculties and facilities (bars, post office, bank, kindergarten,…). It is located in central Rome a few hundreds meters from the main railway station where shuttle train and bus from international airports arrive. Countless hotels and tourist facilities are located within walking distance as well as along the subway lines.

    The availability of University campus will enable us to have a particularly low registration fee and to hypothesise a robust program to waive registration fees for ECR from developing countries.
