For registration, please fill in the Registration form and send it along with your abstract (instructions see below) to Please kindly note that by submitting your abstract you promise that at least one of the authors of your contribution will come personally to the conference to present the contribution. Should none of the authors attend the conference personally, your abstract will not be included in the abstract book.

The conference is free of charge for all participants. We will provide small refreshment during the conference (coffee breaks). There are many restaurants in the vicinity of the faculty, where you can have lunch or dinner for prices between 3 and 10 EUR.

How to contribute

The official language of the conference is English and all the contributions should be presented in English. We require that the first author of each contribution is a student or early-career scientist (less than 3 years after the PhD defence). The organisers reserve the right to reject any contribution that does not fulfil this rule.

Oral presentation

Presentations from any discipline within the field of geo- and biosciences are welcome. Your oral presentation should fit within 15-minute time slot (+5 minutes for discussion), however, the exact time designated for each presentation might be shortened or lengthened based on the number of participants within the section. In case the total number of participants should be too high to fit in the conference schedule, some contributions might be changed from oral presentation to poster (the corresponding author will be notified by e-mail about the change).

The oral presentations will be divided into sections. First day of the conference (4 April) is reserved for geosciences, the second day (5 April) will focus on biosciences.

Poster presentation

Presentations from any discipline within the field of geo- and biosciences are welcome. The maximum size of the poster should be A0 (84 x 120 cm) and the orientation "portrait" (not landscape!). The poster session will be held on 5 April in the afternoon.
