 Call for Sessions Extended

RFG2018 aims to provide participants with a program that will explore four vital themes: energy, minerals, water and the earth. A diverse theme covering grounded in geoscience, the conference will serve as a forum to discuss their research initiatives and activities as well as the key issues and trends shaping the future of energy, minerals and water resources, including the science of the earth that underpins their sustainable discovery and extraction.


The technical program, made up of the themes and sub-themes below, will be spread over 25 parallel rooms and a 4-day period. In addition to daily themed plenaries and a massive poster program, 2,000+ oral presentations of 15 minutes each will be delivered.
