The overarching topic of this year's annual meeting was 'Natural hazards in the Alps'. There were invited talks about natural hazards such as floods, rock falls and debris flows, earthquakes and tsunamis, snow avalanches, and early anthropogenic impact on the landscape and the environment. In addition, there was an educational talk about how to communicate geological topics to the public.

Furthermore, we warmly welcomed poster contributions to any topic related to the Quaternary. This was especially for students (BSc/MSc/PhD) a great opportunity to present their ongoing work.
