Geophysics 100 years Forum

Monday, October 29, 2018 · 08:45 h.

Geophysical research increasingly requires global multidisciplinary approaches. The view of our planet as an interconnected system emphasizes the need for understanding how deeply interrelated are Earth components and processes and the impact and pressure of population growth, increased use of mineral and energy resources, climate change, contamination, deforestation and biodiversity loss.

Developing countries present additional challenges resulting from limited economic resources and social and political problems. Developing countries require improved educational and research programs. Needed are in-depth analyses of infrastructure and human resources, and identification of problems, challenges and opportunities. What are the major limitations and needs in research and postgraduate education in developing countries? What and how should international collaboration do? What are the roles of individuals, academic institutions, funding agencies, scientific societies? Analyses must address current situation, size and characteristics of research communities, education and capacity-building programs, facilities, social-economic development, implementation of bilateral and multinational collaborations, and the challenges and perspectives in an international context.

In this context international research collaboration has an immense potential, required for further development of the Earth sciences. We need further coordinated efforts to develop research and education in geosciences, scientific infrastructure and new initiatives for promoting and strengthening scientific cooperation.

General program


Indications for speakers

Oral: The oral presentations are 12 minutes long to leave 3 minutes for questions. Only presentations in Power Point or PDF format are accepted. There are no Macintosh computers, so it is recommended to verify all the presentations on a PC computer before delivering it. Presentations must be uploaded to the system the day before their assigned schedule. For this you must send them to presentations@raugm.org.mx mailing address. The subject of the mail should be "Presentation #NNNN", where #NNNN corresponds to the presentation number; for example, SIS-12 or SE01-03. Also name the file with the presentation number, followed by the last name of the first author; for example, SIS-12-Suarez, SE01-03-Contreras. If the presentations are too large to send by mail you can use DropBox or any other service to share it. It is advisable to check in the presentations delivery area that were received correctly. Or, they can deliver them in a USB, directly in the presentations delivery area. It is recommended to use the same nomenclature for the file.

Poster: Screens of 2 meters high and 1 meter wide will be provided to the poster presentations. It is recommended not to exceed a poster height of 150 centimeters and leave an edge across the width of the screen of at least 3 centimeters. The posters will be displayed throughout the day they are scheduled, and the speaker may be present in any of the two blocks marked in the day's program. The posters must be placed at 8:30 and be removed at 19:00 on the assigned day. Neither the Organizing Committee nor the hotel is responsible for any poster not removed. There are no facilities to print posters in the hotel, it will be necessary to arrive with the posters ready to present.
