The conference includes five subtopics: contemporary sedimentation processes in coastal, deltaic, and shelf environments; active tectonics, surface processes, and related hazards; geochronology and stratigraphy; historical and Anthropocene environment and climate change; millennial to orbital scales climate change.
On the 17th, Prof. Louis Suh-Yui Teng was invited to give the opening speech. On the 18th, Dr. Kerry Sieh gave a special lecture. Around 200 people attended the conference, including researchers, professors, postdoctoral researchers, master and doctoral students, etc.
Through interdisciplinary and cross-regional cooperation, the conference integrated directions for future Quaternary research on Southeast Asia. Possible regional climate driving forces and the frequency and scope of past natural hazards were discussed from various time and space scales to provide strategies for growing extreme weather events in Southeast Asia. The conference also acted as a platform for Quaternary researchers in Taiwan to present their latest research. A total of 54 papers were published.
