EUROENGEO 2021: 3rd European Regional Conference of IAEG in Athens, Greece

On behalf of our colleagues of the IAEG:

It is a great pleasure to announce that the 3rd European Regional Conference of IAEG, will be hosted in Athens, Greece, by the IAEG National Group of Greece. The conference will take place from October 6th to 10th, 2021 in Athens at Divani Caravel Hotel.

The activation again of the IAEG regional conference in Europe is a fundamental action for our region. Considering that almost half of the members and National Groups (NGs) of IAEG are from European region, we hope that the initiative will become a stable event, involving the scientific and professional community of the same area.

The conference will be organized with the collection of extensive abstracts or FULL PAPERS (optional).

We the undersigned, Dr. Vassilis Marinos, Dr. Constantinos Loupasakis, Dr. Charalampos Saroglou are delighted to invite you to participate in IAEG European Regional Conference.

Sincerely,

The Organizing Committee

ISRM International Symposium 2020 (EUROCK2020) -COVID-19 UPDATE Nr. 2-

A message from our colleagues of the ISRM:

In the last couple of weeks, we have unfortunately experienced an increase in infections both in Norway, and abroad, leading the Norwegian government to impose stricter restrictions on international travel, only allowing travelers coming to Norway from a few European countries. This, in turn, leaves us with no other option than to cancel EUROCK 2020 , as most of our presenters, invited speakers and delegates will not be allowed to enter Norway without a two-week quarantine period.

We have long hoped to avoid this lamentable situation, and it is not with a light heart we have made this decision. Rest assured that we, together with the ISRM, have tried our best to make EUROCK 2020 happen. A physical conference is simply not technically nor economically feasible in the given pandemic situation. We do also find that it is best and safest not to promote international travel for the time being.

We deeply apologize the inconvenience the cancellation will cause for many of our delegates, presenters, invited speakers, partners and colleagues. All participants will get their participation fee back, minus a minor (approx. EUR 35) fee to cover the cost associated with the transfer, this in accordance with the conditions announced during the online registration. Participants paying accommodation through our website will get a full refund of these payments.

We have more than 200 peer-reviewed conference papers ready for publishing, and we do intend to publish the proceedings through OnePetro.org, in collaboration with the ISRM. All authors will be contacted shortly by us, asking for their consent to publish their papers.

GeoUtrecht 2020: Earth – Treasures, Transitions, Threats

A message from our colleagues of the KNGMG:

Dear colleagues,

From 24 to 26 August 2020, the German Geological Society DGGV and the Royal Geological and Mining Society of the Netherlands KNGMG are co-hosting the virtual conference ‘GeoUtrecht 2020: Earth – Treasures, Transitions, Threats’. The call for abstracts is open at http://www.geoutrecht2020.org. The conference hosts three scientific sections on a range of geological topics. The first section is entitled ‘Earth and Humankind – Geo-hazards, geo-resources (including geothermal energy) and sustainability’ and this section in particular welcomes contributions on ongoing projects at our department, including but not limited to DeepNL projects.

The deadline for the call for abstracts is 26th of June 2020. Contributions may be submitted via the conference website at: http://www.geoutrecht2020.org/call-for-abstracts.html

The virtual meeting will be offered as free-of-charge but we would like to encourage all participants who are not yet engaged in either DGGV or KNGMG to become a member of one of the societies as a courtesy mitigating the financial exposure as a result of waiving the conference fees.

We hope to receive many GSE abstracts soon!

Kind regards,

Femke Vossepoel
Board member of the Royal Geological and Mining Society of the Netherlands KNGMG
