Conference programme

The scientific programme of GeoMod2014 is organized in seven topical sessions over 3 days. In each session (except for one), a maximum of two hours are reserved for oral presentations. Two invited talks of 30 minutes each will be complemented by shorter presentations selected by the session conveners based on the submitted abstracts. The remaining time - at least two hours per session - is dedicated to the poster sessions, which we intend to be the pillars of the conference and hope will be every bit as lively as in the past editions!

We also welcome you to the GeoMod1014 Social Events: the Ice Breaker Party on Sunday 31st August (from 6-9 pm, Theaterschiff Potsdam) and the Joint Conference Dinner during a ship cruise on Tuesday 2nd September (from 7-10 pm). 

The Conference is followed by two post-conference short courses
