The Faculty of Geosciences and Environment of the University of Lausanne, the Musée Cantonal de Géologie and the Platform Geosciences of the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) cordially invite you to participate in the 20th Swiss Geoscience Meeting to be held from Friday, 18 November to Sunday, 20 November, 2022.
On Friday, 18 November
The 2022 SGM plenary session on Friday November 18th entitled Resilience and Transitions in Geosciences will explore transitions and resilience at a range of spatial and temporal scales, from geological tipping points to the link between social, economic and natural systems and implications for management and policy.
On Saturday, 19 November
On Sunday, 20 November
A tribute symposium in honour of Karl Föllmi, Johannes Hunziker and Albrecht Steck on Alpine-Himalayan Geology will take place on that day.
The SGM also provides the ideal environment to foster informal contacts and discussion among scientists, in particular during the Swiss Geoscience Party on Friday evening but also at the poster sessions on Saturday. Time is reserved for two poster sessions on Saturday, at which the authors will be present for active discussion and feedback.
Looking forward to seeing you in Lausanne!

SGM 2022: Symposium «Limnology in Switzerland»
This symposium is part of the 20th Swiss Geoscience Meeting from 18 to 20 November 2022. We invite limnologists working on different systems and scales to present their research and exchange with peers. With the symposia being held in the city of Lausanne, we particularly welcome contributions that show first results from the LéXPLORE platform installed on Lake Geneva. Young researchers are particularly encouraged to participate and present their results. To foster an integrated view of research around water, the session will share the poster session and a keynote with the “Hydrology and Hydrogeology” session. We encourage all presenters to consider the link of their work to water research in general in their abstract and presentation.
SGM 2022: Symposium «Hydrology and Hydrogeology»
This symposium is part of the 20th Swiss Geoscience Meeting from 18 to 20 November 2022. As part of this year’s Swiss Geoscience Meeting theme on geosystem transitions and resilience, we would like to particularly encourage contributions that explore hydrological and hydrogeological processes under transient conditions: how do processes respond to changes, how do we define tipping points in hydro(geo)logical systems, how (well) can we predict responses, and what are the implications for the environment and society, i.e. for management and policy making?
