About of seminar

The workshop activities intend to acquaint participants with the newest achievements attained with the geophysical, geological and geochemical surveys and technologies in terms of processing geological information and capable of raising significantly the efficiency of prospecting and exploration of mineral resources. The exchange of gained knowledge and experience between scientists and practitioners, establishing contacts and agreements are also the objectives to reach.

The workshop is an excellent platform for informal constructive communication between the experts involved in various fields of the Earth sciences.

Participants are welcome to deliver papers at morning sessions, in the afternoon the organizers will demonstrate the outcome of experimental works, probe new techniques and facilities in operation. The time for reporting is not limited; however notify the Organizing Committee in advance. In the evening, please join us for informal talks on geological issues.  

The important point of interest will be presentation of up-to-date software and hardware technologies employed in a suite of aseismic methods aimed at prospecting diverse mineral resources. Besides, experience and results from Geological survey, the prospects for developing geological activities to meet practical demands will be discussed as well.
