8. International Symposium on Eastern Mediterranean Geology

“CALL FOR SESSION” is now open until 10 January 2014

The home of earliest civilizations on Earth, the Eastern Mediterranean is among the most interesting regions in Earth Sciences. Earliest discoveries related to the Earth’s geology, such as the use of ore deposits or fossil fuels took place in the Eastern Mediterranean. Besides, intense seismic and volcanic activity or extreme climate changes played crucial roles in shaping the civilizations and developments in this region. Therefore, the complex geology of the Eastern Mediterranean is still an appealing subject for many earth scientists.
Since decades, onland and offshore researches revealed extensive amount of information on the geologic, tectonic, seismic and climatic history of the region. Besides, discoveries of natural resources raised interest for new research and investments in the Eastern Mediterranean. The International Symposium on Eastern Mediterranean Geology (ISEMG) aims to provide a permanent platform for experts in geology, geophysics, mining and other geosciences to share and discuss their recent work and hereby establish international networks among several disciplines of Geosciences. Since 1992, the symposium has been held in several countries, such as Israel, Jordan, Cyprus, Greece and Turkey. Since then, the community of ISEMG has been continuously increasing. Now in 2014, the 8th ISEMG will be held in Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University.
The Department of Geological Engineering of Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University is honoured to host the 8th International Symposium on Eastern Mediterranean Geology. We welcome studies of a wide range in Geosciences and are looking forward for your contribution to this symposium. The 8th ISEMG is hoping to support the existing geoscience network and enable new collaborations among colleagues for future projects in the Mediterranean.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Muğla.
