Invitation

13 "Desert Technology" conferences from 1990 and 3 "International Conference on Arid Land" since 2011 have been held. Now they have been combined to be The DT XIV, International Conference on Arid Land. From this conference, changed the name to The DT XIV International Conference on Arid Land.  

They addressed:

· the natural characteristics of arid areas and desertified areas (e.g. climate, hydrology, and vegetation),

· the mechanism of the desertification, and prevention methods.

· The human sciences towards overcoming constraints of arid land.

 

The conferences have been a great source of learning for researchers from the relevant countries who contributed their knowledge, technology and participated in the very productive working groups.

However, the issues of desertification still remain a global concern, requiring continued and expanding research to negate the consequences.   The previous conferences have often focused on technological aspects of desertification in arid regions. Based on previous experiences and accomplishments, we offer an opportunity to participate in the comprehensive discussions, the presentation of research projects including natural, technological, and human sciences towards overcoming constraints of desertification.

The conference welcomes researchers associated with deserts and arid regions with diverse aspects of arid science, including natural science and the humanities.
