12th Congress of the Balkan Geophysical Society: Geophysics for the Better World (registration fee)

27 - 31 May 2024

On 27-31 May 2024, the 12th Congress & Technical Exhibition of Balkan Geophysical Society (BGS) Geophysics for the better world is held in Serbia.

Balkan Geophysical Society (BGS) is a non-profit organization established by the geophysical societies in the countries of the Balkan Region and neighboring countries (Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Romania, Serbia and Turkey) and cooperates with the National Geophysical Societies/Unions/Committees, as well as with the international organizations such as EAGE, EAPG, SEG, SPE, UNESCO, etc.
BGS Congress is organized every third year, at the end of one country member presidency. The 1st Congress of BGS was held in Athens, in 1996, and the last one till now, the 11th, was organized in Bucharest, in 2021, but in virtual form.

This May, 27-31, the 12th Congress and Technical Exhibition of the Balkan Geophysical Society is held in Serbia again, at the Kraljevi čardaci Hotel, Kopaonik mt., Serbia. During the Congress, participants will enjoy amazing Kopaonik National Park, the number one ski resort in Serbia during the winter (sometimes the ski season lasts till the end of May!), but also an ideal destination for hiking lovers, and for many other activities which are organized during the spring and summer.

Beside standard topics of the Technical Program, goal of the Organizing Committee is to provide some additional contents. Special message of the event is that, beside professionals, there are three pillars more – students, young professionals and seniors. Only this combination gives the best result. Various panel discussions and Workshops for students and young professionals are planned, but also the special program – session and exhibition Pioneers of Geoscience, dedicated to distinguished colleagues who established Geoscience and Geophysics at Balkan countries.

That is why special program is planned to emphasize the importance of each of these groups as BGS leaders for sustainable, inclusive and growing future – working together for a positive social change.

You are cordially invited to take active participation in the Congress as:

  • Presenter/lecturer,
  • Friend of BGS/AGES – participant (without paper),
  • Exhibitor or sponsor and
  • Exhibitor – presenter (a special session is organised for presenting the equipment, IT products and services, including field demos).

The 1st Announcement of the Congress (with Template for the extended abstract) is attached. All details necessary to the authors/participants as well as potential sponsors and/or exhibitors will be available if you send message to: komsne@yahoo.com.

All your ideas regarding the Technical Program are very welcome. 12th BGS Congress is the event where All are the hosts and that will be the nice opportunity to present not only the knowledge and experience of Balkan geophysicists to the world, but also the unique energy and hospitality.

All geophysicists (and not only geophysicists) are welcome! Geophysics for the better world.
