Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The “6th RMQG” (“6th Regional Scientific Meeting on Quaternary Geology”) themed “Seas, Lakes and Rivers” will be held on September 27–30, 2021 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and in its broader region.

The meeting is primarily intended as an opportunity to bring together researchers working on Quaternary geology, geomorphology, stratigraphy, and related subjects in the Adriatic, Alpine, Dinaric, and Pannonian regions; however, participants more involved in other regions are also welcome. The theme of the meeting will be the focus of keynote lectures and the field excursion will visit the Quaternary marine, lacustrine, and fluvial sites in the broader region.

Participants are kindly encouraged to present their work related to the theme of the meeting or their research of other Quaternary topics in the region. Topics include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Quaternary geology of the Adriatic, Alpine, Dinaric, and Pannonian regions
  • Quaternary marine, lacustrine, and fluvial environments
  • Geological, geophysical, geomorphological, sedimentological, geochronological, stratigraphic, palynological, paleopedological, and other Quaternary records
  • Records of Quaternary climate changes and glaciations
  • Tectonic records in Quaternary sedimentary archives
  • Evolution of Quaternary basins
  • Karst systems during the Quaternary
  • Limnology
  • Geoarcheology, geoheritage, and geoconservation of Quaternary phenomena
  • Geohazards

We expect that interesting new findings will be presented at the meeting. We encourage participants to prepare papers from their presentations and submit them to a Special Issue of the MDPI journal Quaternary, dedicated to the meeting. The Special Issue is also open for papers that will not be presented at the 6th RMQG but are related to the meeting topics and are in the Adriatic, Alpine, Dinaric, or Pannonian region.

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
