The theme of the meeting was the Quaternary evolution of the Swiss Alpine Foreland with a special focus on the sedimentary archives and on the reconstruction of their chronology.

The goal was to provide an update on the ongoing research on these archives, especially on the efforts on dating these by applying different techniques/approaches. Therefore, we allocated time for the talks to the invited speakers from universities, governmental institutions and private companies.

In addition to the invited talks, students (BSc/MSc/PhD) and young scientists, presented their ongoing research in the poster session.
