Methods of processing and subjects involved

The processing will be done both manually and by computer. The data may be communicated to institutions or public and private authorities if strictly necessary for the scope of the teaching activities of the course.

Nature of the provision of the data and consequences of a potential refusal

The provision of the data is mandatory, and the potential refusal of the provision involves the impossibility of the enrollment in the course and the management of the connected procedural activities, as well as the teaching activities.

Holder and supervisor of the processing

The holder of the processing of the data is the AIQUA – Associazione Italiana per il Quaternario represented in person by its pro tempore legal representative, the president Maria Rita Palombo.         


Section 7 d.lgs. 196/2003 - Right to Access Personal Data and Other Rights

- The data subject shall have the right to be informed

a) of the source of the personal data;

b) of the purposes and methods of the processing;

c) of the logic applied to the processing, if the latter is carried out with the help of electronic means;

d) of the identification data concerning data controller, data processors and the representative designated as per section 5 paragraph 2;

e) of the entities or categories of entity to whom or which the personal data may be communicated and who or which may get to know said data in their capacity as designated representative(s) in the State’s territory, data processor(s) or person(s) in charge of the processing.

- The subject shall have the right to obtain

a) updating, rectification or, where interested therein, integration of the data;

b) erasure, anonymizing or blocking of data that have been processed unlawfully, including data whose retention is unnecessary for the purposes for which they have been collected or subsequently processed;

c) certification to the effect that the operations as per letters a) and b) have been notified, as also related to their contents, to the entities to whom or which the data were communicated or disseminated, unless this requirement proves impossible or involves a manifestly disproportionate effort compared with the right that is to be protected.

a) on legitimate grounds, to the processing of personal data concerning him/her, even though they are relevant to the purpose of the collection;

b) to the processing of personal data concerning him/her, where it is carried out for the purpose of sending advertising materials or direct selling or else for the performance of market or commercial communication surveys.

Signature for acceptance

Please email your fully completed application form in PDF/scanned version no later than July 29, 2017 hrs 12 AM UTC/GMT to:

Once you have been notified the acceptance to the AIQUA fall school you need to pay the fee by September 2, 2017 to confirm your attendance.

EUR 150 (EUR 120 for AIQUA members)

Included are:

  • travel costs during summer school
  • all lessons and field trips
  • scripts and documents

You will receive the payment receipt once at the Fall School. Please let us know if you need an invoice now.

After your registration we will send you the fall school fees payment details.

Cancellation by the participant is possible until the 10th of September 2017

(after this time only a partial refund will be possible)

The Summer school will be hosted by the country house Villa Giovina.

http://www.villagiovina.it/home.htm

Depending on the type of accommodation you choose (single, double room), the costs for 3 days’ full board (except the social dinner) can vary:

Room type

Cost per person

Single room

165€

Shared room

135 €

Double room single occupancy

195€

The amount can be paid directly to Villa Giovina, by cash or POS payment.

The social dinner will be held in a typical restaurant in Sulmona downtown and will cost 30€

Techniques and case studies

The school will be organised into theoretical lessons, practical exercises and seminars held by Italian scientists. The expertizes will cover various fields of the broad spectrum of the geology, stratigraphy and paleoclimatology of continental Quaternary. In fact, since a long time the Apennine quaternary basins have been recognized as fundamental archives for the study of Quaternary tectonics. Recent high resolution stratigraphic and temporal surveys have further emphasized the importance of these sequences in the study of the evolution of the local paleo-environmental systems but also in the history of climate on the regional and extra-regional scale during the Quaternary.

In addition to providing basic notions about different methods and topics of investigation (eg. Quaternary tectonics, tephrostratigraphy, geochronology, isotopic stratigraphy, paleoecology, palynology, palaeontology, magneto stratigraphy), the lessons will cover study cases of sedimentary succession that will be further illustrated and examined during the field trips.

These will take place in the basin of Sulmona, which offers many examples of well-studied and accessible stratigraphic sections that cover different time intervals during the Pleistocene.

4.1.2. The identification of sediment bearing ostracods and paleoclimatic reconstruction

By Car
Sulmona is accessible via the A25 Rome to Pescara motorway- exit at Sulmona / Pratola Peligna. Rome is 2 hours away and Pescara just 50 minutes.
It is also reached via the SS17 which lead to Naples in one direction and L’Aquila in the other. Naples 2hrs 20 mins and L’Aquila 1 hr 15 mins.

By Air

Sulmona’s nearest airport is at Pescara with flights to London’s Stansted, Barcelona, Oslo, Paris, Frankfurt, Brussels and Dusseldorf plus internal flights to Milan and Cagliari. Pescara airport is 50 minutes from Sulmona and you can connect either by bus or by train.

From Rome airports, you can take a Prontobus that will bring you to Sulmona in about 2hr.

By Train

Sulmona is an important communication node in the centre of Abruzzo and is easily accessed from Rome, Pescara and L’Aquila. Note that the railway station is a little way out of town and uphill towards the centro storico.  

By Coach

Coaches are provided throughout Abruzzo by ARPA.
Connecting coaches to Rome for example are also available from PSTAR

How to reach the country house hotel "Villa Giovina"

Via di Villa Giovina, 38 - 67037 - Bagnaturo di Pratola Peligna 

The Hotel is located about 8 km N of the Sulmona centre. If you arrive with public transportation we could organize a pick-up service (at no costs). Please let us know the place and time of arrival at Sulmona. We can organize the same service the day of the departure, leaving you at the train or bus station.
