Background

The Council of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG/AIG) at its meeting held in the framework of the 6th International Conference on Geomorphology in September 2005 in Zaragoza, Spain, approved the Carpatho-Balkan-Dinaric Regional Working Group (CBDRWG) as one of new IAG/AIG WGs. The CBDRWG was proposed by geomorphologists of 11 countries associated in the Carpatho-Balkan Geomorphological Commission (CBGC).

The CBGC was founded in 1963 on the occasion of a joint symposium "Geomorphology of the Carpathians" held in Kraków and Bratislava. From the very beginning, its main objective was to provide a platform not only for the exchange of knowledge and experience concerning the Carpatho-Balkan mountain system and adjacent depressions, but also for the solving of common research tasks. Gradually, its members were Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Soviet Union and Yugoslavia. After some inertia in 1990s there has been a visible endeavour recently to re-activate the cooperation within the CBGC.

The main objective of the Commission under new conditions is again the creation of a platform for effective cooperation of the original CBGC member countries (Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania), successor states formed following the disintegration of the original CBGC member countries (Czechia, Slovakia, Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovenia, and Ukraine), as well as of the states which had no chance to become the CBGC member country in the past for political reasons (Austria). To be able to continue in the cooperation with successor states of former Yugoslavia which are not lying in the Carpatho-Balkan mountain system after its division, the study area of the approved IAG/AIG WG was broadened with the Dinarides.
