Session submission here

Session proposals will be selected by the Scientific Committee on the basis of their scientific interest, novelty, quality as well as their potential to attract a large spectrum of abstracts and generate multidisciplinary discussion. After acceptance by the scientific committee, session organisers would receive information regarding the next steps to follow to organise their session.

The sessions program is expected to be finalised by the end of December 2017 and will be made subsequently official on the GeoBonn website.

Looking forward to seeing you at the GeoBonn,

Thomas Martin on the behalf of Organizing Committee.
