It is an honor for us to invite you to the 16th International Multidisciplinary Scientific GeoConference & EXPO SGEM2016, where we bring together scientists, educators and practitioners, representing research and educational institutions, companies, governmental agencies and consulting organizations from all over the world to exchange ideas, to define the research priorities in the above fields and to propose potential solutions to problems related to the global changes. The SGEM events date back to 2001. Over the past years we have established high standards in publishing research papers, stimulating their progress and achievements. Papers are being approved by the Review Committee and will be published into the SGEM CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS (ABSTRACTS+FULL PAPERS) (ISSN: 1314-2704) sent for evaluation by Thomson Reuters, ISI Web of Science, Elsevier products – SCOPUS, Engineering Village/Compendex. The SGEM Conference is entirely indexed by SCOPUS from 2005 and in ISI WOS from 2008 onwards. We are voting member of CrossRef (DOI), partner of EBSCOHosts and ProQuest. The papers from the Proceedings will be also available in Mendeley, CiteUlike, Google Scholar, British Library and SGEM@Lib On-line Scientific library. It is our great pride that SGEM Conference Proceedings are indexed into the most popular and scientifically strong databases.
Following our tradition, SGEM considers matters concerned with Geology and Mining, Oil and Gas, Geodesy, Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing, GIS, Informatics, Geoinformatics, Micro and Nanotechnologies, Water resources, Air and Climate, Ecosystems, Soils, Renewable Energy, Environmental Protection, Environmental Economics, Nano and Bio Technologies, Green Buildings Design and Architecture.
The conference will be organized in Workshops and Invited Sessions that will be held as a parallel to the conference oral presentations sessions. These are additional opportunities for the SGEM participants to exchange views and to learn about the best practices in the environmental researches application and management. The concurrent SGEM Expo, related to the conference topics, is another excellent opportunity to promote a company, to meet potential clients and business partners. All the sessions are accompanied with various social events to make the conference a pleasant experience in all aspects.
All theoretical, methodological and conceptual reports presenting contemporary geoscience development and problem solving ideas are expected with a great interest. Special attention will be given to reports, proposing science based ideas for decision-making and adaptation to the new reality of global changes. During the Official Award Ceremony, which will be held on the last day, authors of the Best presentations (Oral/PhD/Poster) will be awarded by the Scientific Committee with special crystal plaques.
