    The Organising Committee and the European Association for the Conservation of the Geological Heritage (ProGEO) is pleased to invite you to take part in the Xth International ProGEO Symposium. The meeting is organised by the Instituto Geológico y Minero de España (IGME, the Geological Survey of Spain) and will take place in Segovia (Spain) from 8th to 11th of June 2020.

    This symposium is an international event open to scientists, students, educators, professionals, decision-makers and anyone involved in geoconservation. The symposium is organized in conjunction with several geoconservation organizations also hosting their meetings in Segovia during the same dates.

    These include:

    - A Workshop of the IUCN WCPA Geoheritage Specialist Group (GSG),

    - The 1st Workshop on Geoheritage of Volcanic Islands,

    -  The 4th Meeting of ProGEO’s Southwest Europe Regional Working Group,

    -  A meeting of the African Geoconservation Group of the EU-funded PanAfGeo project, and

    -  A meeting of the Geoherithage Commission of the Association of Iberoamerican Geological and Mining Surveys (ASGMI).

    The Symposium will provide the opportunity to discuss the new challenges and threats in global geoconservation. The knowledge and experience acquired within ProGEO during the last decades at national, European and global levels projects this scientific organization as the international leader in geoconservation.

    Recent developments include issues such as methodologies for the inventory of Geological Sites of Interest, geoconservation in natural protected areas, benefits and impact of rural development and geotourism in geoparks, legislation and management in a global conservation framework. The Symposium will promote communication and collaboration amongst the different stakeholders and actors in modern geoheritage conservation from all over the world present at the various joint meetings taking place at Segovia.

    Important notice: The 3rd CAJG will take place as scheduled and we are proceeding with all plans to convene the meeting.

    However, from now until the conference days, no one can predict the worldwide development and spread of coronavirus and how long this situation will last. That is why, CAJG organizing committee decided to provide the possibility of presenting online to those who prefer not to attend the conference in person.

    Interested authors are encouraged to submit an abstract of their presentation and to leave the decision (online registration deadline: 15 September 2020) as to whether to attend the conference and to present onsite or just online. More details about the online presentation feature will be provided after notification of acceptances.

    Plan B: If the risk associated with the spread of coronavirus will continue after this summer, we’ll decide before the deadline for online registration (15 September 2020) about the possibility of organizing online the full conference or to postpone it to Spring 2021. In all cases, we’ll inform you about our decision before the deadline for online registration (i.e. 2 months before your trip to Tunisia).

    We hope to meet you at the 3rd CAJG on the Mediterranean waterfront of Sousse!

    Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions ([email protected]).

    Yours sincerely,

    The International Geological Congress (IGC) is delighted to announce the 36th International Geological Congress, which will be hosted in the exotic New Delhi, from 2-8 March 2020. The main aim of the event is to create a thoughtful environment for sharing geological knowledge with the main academics, organisations, partners and researchers coming from all over the world as well as those stakeholders who eager to learn more or possessing an expertise or deep interest for earth sciences, geology and the mineral sector.

    The vast Indian-subcontinent is a land rich of natural resources and can provide a full range of geological episodes, from precious and rare minerals to extensive rivers and active volcanoes, offering its visitors a deep and varied historical and cultural heritage. As such, India has actively contributed in several areas of the scientific sector and in research over the years.

    Each of these aspects make the upcoming IGC Congress a not-to-be-missed opportunity for those who want to enhance their geoscientific knowledge.

    For more information about the congress, the registration process and the details about the venue, please check the dedicated website of the event.
