Mission Statement

PANGEO AUSTRIA takes place every two years, showcasing Austrian geoscientific research and practices. The central theme of PANGEO AUSTRIA 2018 in Vienna is “Geo-Net; networking Earth scientists in Austria”. Through this, students and young Earth scientists in particular will be offered the chance to interact with potential employers in Austria.

A wide spectrum of high-quality research, with, theoretical, regional and applied themes, will provide the framework for a close exchange between students, professionals and researchers at universities, centres of excellence, museums, research institutes, government bodies, engineering companies, and other industries.

In addition to the lectures and poster presentations, the significance of regional Austria-relevant topics will be emphasised through multidisciplinary excursions. To support the communication of geoscientific material at schools, we will also provide special offers for school- teachers.

Conference languages: German/English

Best Poster Awards for student posters: Three poster awards will be given to the best student posters, as chosen by a jury of the Scientific Committee.
