    As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the GeoUtrecht event normally based in Utrecht, the Netherlands, will be held as a virtual conference from 21st to 26th August.

    The conference offers its wide audience a the comprehensive conference program based on the 234 abstracts submitted, many from early career scientists. In case of suggestions, interested attendees can send their inputs on events (e.g. for your working groups). Also the exhibition hall is still available for the sponsors to join.

    Following the positive response in the process of abstract submission, authors are required to upload presentation materials in advance of the meeting as per deadlines provided, as a next step. The meeting will require registration for access to the MS-Teams online system to be used. However, no fee is charged to participate. Nevertheless, and in case you are not yet a member of one of the two non-profit sponsors DGGV and KNGMG, participants are encouraged to become a member as a courtesy. The organizers of the event will recover part of the costs.

    Although virtual, the conference will address and involve a large geoscience community for sharing several inputs and information which will lead the event to a great success.

    In this context, the GeoERA project will host a session aiming to give first-hand information on the role of raw materials for our society and the impact of the scientific projects for the worldwide community will be discussed at on Tuesday, 25 August GeoUtrecht2020 online-event.

    The Plenary Talk by Karen Hanghøj (8:30 am) will introduce some aspects of the political, technical and societal challenges tackled by the contributions.

    Date and time of the session is Tuesday, 25 August in Room 2.01 at 10:20am - 12:20pm; 3:20pm - 5:20pm and 5:50pm – 7:05 pm to discuss contributions to the solutions for an innovative sustainable approach and new tech-based methods.

    The symposium aims to bring together the key innovators of the most advanced technologies and methods for mineral exploration in Europe, namely the representatives of European exploration companies (SMEs, industries) and professionals from academia and research institutes working on mineral exploration.

    The event will focus on the recent and innovative developments in integrated exploration solutions focused on finding new deposits, benefitting from multidisciplinary and integrated approaches of advanced mineralogical, geochemical, geophysical, remote sensing, multi-dimension modelling, automation and robotisation techniques.

    Special attention will be given to the role that the EU is playing in sustainable supply of raw materials, in particular through funding R&I projects that aim to develop breakthrough technologies for mineral exploration.

    The Mineral Exploration Symposium is organised jointly by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized enterprises (EASME) and the European Association of Geoscientistists and Engineers (EAGE). It is free admission but registration is mandatory.

    Deadline to submit your abstracts is 28 June 2020.

    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,

    On behalf of the 3rd CAJG Organizing Committee:
