16th International Congress

October 17-19, 2022
Patras, Greece









New dates announced for the 16th International Congress of the Geological Society of Greece

The conference will be held in Patras, on October 17-19, 2022.

Following extensive discussions between the organizing committee and the GSG, we decided to change the dates of the congress in 2022 from May 23-25 to October 17-19.

The reason for the change is to ensure a higher level of participation, since the European Geosciences Union (EGU) very recently announced a change of date for the annual General Assembly EGU22 to 23–27 May 2022.

Moreover, the committee considers that the conditions related to COVID-19 will improve during autumn, enabling a fully face-to-face meeting.

The Organizing Committee will be in touch with all our speakers and panelists over the next weeks to confirm their availability for the new dates. We will send you more information in due time, and we hope to see many of you there.

Thanks to all involved in advance for their understanding.

The Organizing Committee

An Event Not to be Missed!

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are delighted to welcome you all to the 16th International Congress of the Geological Society of Greece, to be held at the University of Patras, Greece, from October 17-19, 2022.

The Congress will be organized in a face-to-face setting, and aims to bring together academics, researchers, research students, and industry from around the world to share their knowledge, experience, and research results on all aspects of Geosciences with prime focus on, but not limited to, the eastern Mediterranean area.

Given the global reality, the Congress theme “Our Earth, Our Home” is a timely reminder that the understanding of the processes occurring on and within the earth as well as the interaction with human activities is the key to protect both our civilization and our planet. Thus, this Congress provides a unique opportunity to discuss critical issues in these escalating problems.

We are confident it will be an excellent meeting bringing together friends and colleagues within the geological community after a long period of absence.

We look forward to welcoming you all to Patras in October 2022.
