19th Annual Conference
2-8 September, Olomouc, Czech Republic
The beautiful historical city of Olomouc, Czech Republic is the setting for IAMG 2018, the Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Association, established in Prague. In addition to the main scientific aim of the conference, this occasion will be proudly celebrated with all those who have contributed to scientific growth of IAMG in the last decades.
The leading topic of the conference is “Tools for Data Analysis in Geosciences”. Accordingly, for IAMG 2018 any contributions regarding the applications of mathematics, statistics, computer science and informatics in solving problems of geosciences are welcome. Concrete sessions covering the broad thematic range will be established based on post-stratification of the received contributions and/or conveners of the sessions. The conference aims in particular at providing opportunities for students and young scientists to engage with some of the best geosciences minds in the world.
The conference site is the Faculty of Science of the Palacký University, modern well-equipped building and with all facilities of the nearby university campus. Surrounded by open green space (Rosarium of the Botanic Garden is just in front of the Faculty building), this is the perfect place to share experience and expertise. Within walking distance from the IAMG 2018 venue, the Old Town of Olomouc mirrors a thousand years of European history.
An important aim of the Conference will be the stirring of social life: as we all know, networking is an important aspect of any conference. We have reserved the entire Clarion Conference Hotel (http://www.clarioncongresshotelolomouc.com/en/) for IAMG2018 participants to stay there. Considering that rooms in the Clarion may not be sufficient, rooms are reserved in two slightly cheaper hotels nearby one tram line away. Moreover, the city of Olomouc will be presented in a varied cultural program and geological field trip(s) at low cost are organized so everyone can consider joining them. Last, but not least, a social trip to Prague is organized, the beautiful capital of the Czech Republic where IAMG was established during the tumultuous summer of 1968.
Looking forward to welcome you in Olomouc in September 2018!
