From 16 to 20 June 2010, Uppsala SEG Student Chapter will host the 8th International Geosciences Student Conference in Uppsala, Sweden.

The International Geosciences Student Conference (IGSC) is a student-led and student-organized event. IGSC is an excellent opportunity to build leadership skills, network with peers and sponsors, and make a difference in the community.

IGSC 2019 theme is Sharing ideas. Responsibly securing natural resources. With the ever importance of climate change and the energy transition we want to draw student’s attention to the role of geosciences in shaping the future of the world. Event is supported by Society of Exploration Geophysicists and Uppsala University.

We would like to focus on the way all earth science disciplines contribute to securing the natural resources responsibly and sustainably for the next generations and how geoscience helps moving towards green and clean energy for a better future for many generations to come.

Technical Program

The technical program of the 8th IGSC 2019 offers an extensive student programme with activities such as student’s oral and poster presentations, keynotes, panel discussion and variety of workshops.

We want the IGSC 2019 Technical Program to provide the knowledge and be a learning experience to students from all geoscientific disciplines. With the ever importance of climate change and the energy transition we want to draw student's attention to the role of geosciences in shaping the future of the world.

During the technical programme, we would like to focus on the way our discipline contributes to securing the natural resources responsibly and sustainably for the next generations and how geoscience, in general, helps to move towards green and clean energy for a better lifestyle for many generations to come.

We welcome abstracts covering the following broad areas:

  • Raw Materials
  • Energy
  • Geohazards
  • Water
  • Sustainability

Call for abstracts is currently open, and everyone interested can submit the abstract by 15th of March 2019 through IGSC 2019 website. Standard registration is also possible through the registration link at IGSC 2019 website.

Social Program

To complement the conference, we invite you to take part in a social program that offers, culture, networking opportunities, and fine dining.

At the core of the IGSC lies networking, and we are convinced that a warming Ice Breaker gathering and a Farewell Party will create a collaborative and informal atmosphere.

Entertainment for delegates will be part of the IGSC 2019, including also Uppsala Tour, Conference Evening in Geocentrum’s TGIF style as well as the SEG Challenge Bowl, where students will get a chance to confront their knowledge in geoscience with the cheering support of the peer students.
