The First Academic and Scientific Research Organization Geological Congress – [ASRO – GC 2017] will host a rich scientific program with plenary sessions as well as information on professional development workshops, short courses training and pre-, mid- and post-congress field excursions in several geological domains in Morocco. ASRO aims to promote the scientific thinking in the developing countries and building a new generation of scientists who will lead the scientific activities in these countries using the state-of-the-art technology. The core topics for the Congress are Earth science for Society, Earth science and environmental issues, Fundamental Earth science and Earth science in the Economy.

The fight against global warming took a major step forward since November 4th, with the Paris Climate Agreement coming into force, and it is now time for signatory countries to move from words to deeds.
Thanks to its energy and climate policy measures taken so far, the European Union has been a forerunner on these topics, and the current agenda of the European Commission offers a wealth of new ambitious initiatives to go forward.
2017 will be therefore decisive for the EU institutions, the national authorities and the industry to turn those objectives into concrete policy actions and the 3rd EU Energy Summit will be an excellent opportunity to discuss the very recent EU initiatives and their impact on the energy market and to debate how the EU could encourage and support the efforts required from the European economic and social actors to face major challenges: innovative technologies to boost decarbonisation and energy efficiency, new electricity market design and integration of renewable energy, mobilisation of public and private capital, promotion of smart cities and consumers’ empowerment, widening and strengthening of the energy systems’ resilience, etc.

The Cuban Geological Society, is pleased to invite Cuban and foreign professionals, technicians and university students of Geology, Geophysics, Mining and related sciences, to participate in the VII Earth Sciences Convention and Exhibition of Products, New Technologies and Services.
The convention welcomes presentations about Cuba, the Caribbean or in general about the geology, geophysics and mining experiences in the search and management of natural resources, including minerals (metals, non metals), water, oil and gas, construction, earthquake research and other geohazards, medical geology, education of geosciences; as well as other any related to the sustainable exploitation of natural resources. We invite professionals societies, institutions and non-governmental organizations to organize workshops, round tables and meetings during the Convention.
For coordination, please contact the Organizing Committee at your earliest convenience: [email protected]
Please visit the website for more information.
In this congress, a wide range of attendance of valuable specialists, scientists and industry representatives from various countries will present and discuss recent technologies and production methods in mining. In addition to the congress, world leading machinery and equipment companies will take place in the exhibition.
The congress city, Antalya, close to the archaeological sites from the Roman Era with well-known beaches and sea will adorn the congress.

RocExs 2017 is organised on behalf of the Rockfall Expert Network (RocExs.NET) and the Joint Technical Committee of the ISSMFE, ISRM and IAEG (JTC-1) by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the Institut Cartogràfic i Geològic de Catalunya (ICGC).
Rockfalls are frequent and damaging hazard in mountainous regions and coastal cliffs. They are also frequent in cut slopes of the transportation corridors, in quarries and other excavations. Significant progress has been achieved in the last decades, particularly in the characterization of the rock masses at the potential rockfall sources, in detecting premonitory instability features and monitoring of displacements, in the rockfall modelling and in the design of both protective and stabilization measures. The analysis and management of the rockfall hazard and risk often requires a multidisciplinary approach.The aim of the workshop is to bring together earth scientists, engineers, practitioners, decision makers and end-users, in order to discuss and evaluate new methods, models and approaches for the analysis and management of the rockfalls that have been recently developed.

The key objective of the 2nd International Conference Mining in Europe is to share the latest developments on mining expertise, activities, developments and research in Europe and beyond. The Conference will address a series of topics. AIMS 2017 will feature invited keynote speakers, exhibitions by industry and sessions with oral and poster presentations. The AIMS Organisation Team invites you to submit abstracts for oral presentations or scientific posters. Submissions as well as registrations should be made online via our portal. The submission period is 01 February – 01 April 2017.
The Conference aims to address the significant issue of sustainable solid waste management through the promotion of safe practices & effective technologies. Separation at source, Biological Treatment, the treatment at central facilities, waste prevention, biowaste utilization, recycling promotion, sludge management, management of specific waste streams (agricultural and livestock waste, construction and demolition waste, WEEE, etc) constitute main conference subjects. Special attention will be drawn to the valorization prospects & the products produced of solid waste, such as: biofuels, compost, materials, etc. The new concept of this conference is that it hopes to strengthen the link of the applied research with industry. Emphasis will be placed on Food Industry. Biotechnology, Circular economy, Best Available techniques, symbiosis networks, energy consumption and saving, carbon footprint and water footprint, zero-waste initiatives, marine litter constitute the new target areas of the conference.
