The 35th International Geological Congress 2016 in Cape Town, South Africa has issued a Call for Papers and will feature a geothermal energy stream.

With a geothermal as part of a symposia topic area, we thought this might be of interest.

The 35th International Geological Congress, taking place August 27 to September 4, 2016 in Cape Town, South Africa has issued a call for papers. The deadline is January 31, 2016.

The geosciences are particularly relevant to developing alternate and renewable forms of energy, including nuclear and geothermal energy. This theme presents the opportunity for papers and symposia on the application of the geosciences to the development of carbon-alternate energy forms.

Symposia topics include:

  • Carbon Capture and Storage
  • Natural Gas Storage
  • Reservoir Management
  • Geothermal Energy

Call for abstracts is open for either an Oral or Poster presentations. You will be asked for your preferred presentation format but the final allocation will be decided by Theme Conveners and the Scientific Programme Committee.

The deadline for abstract submissions is 31st January 2016. Acceptances of papers will be sent out by 31st March 2016. Only electronic submissions will be accepted via the IGC Abstract Submission Portal link. Click Here
