Meetings


Previous Meetings | General Assemblies

Meetings of the Association of European Geological Societies (MAEGS) are held in a different European country each time.
The scientific theme of each meeting, which is decided by the host organisations, should appeal to a wide section of the geological community. The format is similar, the meeting taking place over 3 or 4 days with keynote addresses and sessions for the oral presentation of scientific papers. Each meeting includes exhibitions, an accompanying programme of field trips and social activities. Participation is based on individual application.

For future meetings it is considered to emphasize the geopolitical part of the meetings. Public policy issues are assuming increasing significance in geological science, and here the MAEGS would be able to offer a European-wide platform for discussion in this direction. It is suggested that Member Societies send 1 to 3 representatives who could present the latest developments and problems in the area of the session theme (e.g., natural attenuation) with special reference to geopolitical implications. It could provide a valuable platform for decision-makers in European geological science.
