We are proud to announce that we managed to organize with our partner NaviGate additional workshops for you during Geosymposium. They will concern the ways of effective spatial data collecting during field works. Unfortunately, number of seats is limited. The registration order for those workshops will decide about enrolled participants. Please do it by sending email with your willingness to participate to geosymposium@us.edu.pl

Short description of the course:
During workshops, participants will be acquainted with methods of measuring applications designed for GIS and Spectra Precision GNSS collectors, which allow to conduct in situ measurements in a very simple way. Manual collectors and a MobileMapper smart antenna are able to work in autonomous mode, differential mode and post-processing mode. The aim of these workshops is to get to know or to improve skills of collecting spatial data for one’s own studies.

Workshops scope:
•    theoretical introduction – a description of technology and devices
•    presentation of prepared project and layers
•    in situ measurements
•    discussion over the results

 

WARNING!

On friday (06.05.2016), one of our Universitys servers had serious failure. Therefore we were not able to receive and send emails till now (12.05.2016). Furthermore we have lost part of submitted data in result. Please contact us if you did not get any answer for your email or to check if your submission is completed! You can do it by geosymposium@us.edu.pl which is working now, or directly to srodek.dorota@gmail.com.

We apologize for the inconvenience!

 

Geosymposium is an international conference devoted to young scientists, PhD Students and young doctors interestedin Earth Sciences. The conference is of an interdisciplinary character, thanks to which it provides an excellent platform for the presentation of research results in the field of geology, geophysics, geography and environmental protection.

The nature of Geosmposium is to promote constructive discussion on raised issues from a variety of points of view. That is the source of its high potential to contribute to improvement of the current work of young researchers and establish collaboration on joint projects between them in the future.

Conference is organized each autumn by Faculty of Earth Science of the University of Silesia in Katowice (Poland). This year's Geosymposium of Young Researchers will be the ninth meeting since the first edition in 2007. Since 2014 GeoSymposium has received the rank of an international. This demonstrates the need for this type of activity and the positive effects exerted on the community of young researchers.

 In this year we are planning to perform following sessions:

1. Physical geography, landscape ecology
2. GIS, teledetecion and cartography
3. Structural geology
4. Petrology, mineralogy and geochemistry
5. Paleontology
6. Hydrogeology
7. Near surface geophysics
8. Petroleum geophysics
9. Environmental protection
10. Polar studies
