The conference brings together and international and interdisciplinary group of scientists interested in various aspects of alluvial fans: geology, geotectonics, sedmentology, geomorphology, hydrology, hydrogeology, engineering, resources, hazards, extra-terrestrial and land use on fans. Studies of modern fans as well as fans that are part of the stratigraphic record, as well as those on Earth and extra-terrestrial, will be presented. All those interested in the study of alluvial fans are invited to attend this meeting. The conference is being hosted by University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand and it will showcase the fans in New Zealand.
