It is an honor for us to invite you to the 18th International Multidisciplinary Scientific GeoConference & EXPO SGEM2018, where we bring together scientists, educators and practitioners, representing research and educational institutions, companies, governmental agencies and consulting organizations from all over the world to exchange ideas, to define the research priorities in the below fields and to propose potential solutions to problems related to the global changes. Over the past years we have established high standards in publishing research papers, stimulating their progress and achievements. Papers are approved by the Review Committee and will be published into the SGEM CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS indexed by SCOPUS, ELSEVIER, Thomson Reuters, ISI Web of Knowledge, EBSCOhost, ProQuest.
Papers from the upper mentioned proceedings will be also online available via Mendeley, CiteUlike, Google Scholar, British Library and SGEM@Lib On-line Scientific library.
Following our tradition, SGEM considers questions concerned with Geology, Hydrogeology, Engineering Geology and Geotechnics, Exploration and Mining, Mineral Processing, Applied and Environmental Geophysics, Oil and Gas Exploration, Informatics, Geoinformatics, Geodesy and Mine Surveying, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Cartography and GIS, Hydrology and Water Resources, Soils, Forest Ecosystems, Marine and Ocean Ecosystems, Nuclear Technologies, Renewable Energy Sources and Clean Technologies, Recycling, Air Pollution and Climate Change, Ecology and Environmental Protection, Environmental Economics, Education and Accreditation in GeoSciences, Environmental Legislation, Multilateral Relations and Funding Opportunities, Micro and Nano Technologies, Advances in Biotechnology, Green Buildings Technologies and Materials, Green Design and Sustainable Architecture, Planetary Sciences and Space Technologies.
The conference will be organized in Workshops and Invited Sessions that will be held as a parallel to the conference oral presentations sessions. These are additional opportunities for the SGEM participants to exchange views and to learn about the best practices in the environmental researches application and management. The concurrent SGEM Expo, related to the conference topics, is another excellent opportunity to promote a company, to meet potential clients and business partners. All the sessions are accompanied with various social events to make the conference a pleasant experience in all aspects.
All theoretical, methodological and conceptual reports presenting contemporary geoscience development and problem-solving ideas are expected with a great interest. Special attention will be given to reports, proposing science based ideas for decision-making and adaptation to the new reality of global changes. During the Official Award Ceremony, which will be held on the last day, authors of the Best presentations (Oral/PhD/Poster) will be awarded by the Scientific Committee with special crystal plaques.
