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
