Scope of the WSEAS Conference on GEOLOGY & SEISMOLOGY (GES'09)

The World Conference of IASME and WSEAS on GEOLOGY & SEISMOLOGY is the internationally recognized Forum for the dissemination of the latest advances on Geology and Seismology as well as
their impact and their interaction with other areas of Geoscience, Environmental Engineering, Civil Engineering and Applied Physics. The various WSEAS conferences on Geosciences has been successfully held each year since 2007 and has produced 3 volumes of Proceedings while the best papers and the invited papers after extension and after peer review from 4 international referees, are published in WSEAS Journals covered by all the major scientific indexes.

The 3rd IASME/WSEAS International Conference on GEOLOGY & SEISMOLOGY aims to disseminate the latest research and applications in the afore mentioned fields. The range of topics covered are listed on the Call For Papers. The friendliness and openness of the WSEAS conferences, adds to their ability to grow by constantly attracting young researchers.

The IASME/WSEAS International Conference on GEOLOGY & SEISMOLOGY attracts each year a large number of well-established and leading researchers in the aforementioned areas as well as Modern and Advanced Applications in our Real Life.

The meetings have always had a special appeal to young researchers and are characterized by a friendly atmosphere in which delegates at different stages of their careers can talk to each other. Scientists within all the areas of Geology and Seismology will benefit from attending the meeting. As a conclusion, the conference offers to the engineers and scientists  a unique forum for establishing new collaborations within present or upcoming research projects, exchanging useful ideas, presenting recent research results, participating in discussions and establishing new academic collaborations, linking university with the industry.
