OBJECTIVES OF THE CONFERENCE
The Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical
Geology, IAMG'98, will be held in Isola d'Ischia, (Napoli, Italy)
October 5-9, 1998.
Previous Conferences of the same series have been held in Mount
Tremblant (Canada, 1994), Osaka (Japan, 1995), Beijing (China, 1996),
and Barcelona (Spain, 1997).
This international conference will focus primarily on the mathematical
and statistical analysis of Time-Space Systems in Geology and Environmental
Sciences. Other topics relevant to mathematical geology (see below) will
also be included.
The conference is sponsored by the International Association for
Mathematical Geology (IAMG) and by the Consiglio Nazionale delle
Ricerche (C.N.R., Italy); it will consist of 5 days devoted to technical sessions,
tutorial workshops and excursions in areas of scientific and tourist
interest. A full program for accompanying guests and a conference banquet are
The IAMG'98 conference will start Sunday, October 4, at 6 p.m. with an
official reception followed by three days of plenary and parallel
The conference will be divided in several morning and afternoon
sessions, opened by keynote lectures given by invited speakers.
Tentatively, selected topics of
the conference are:
1.time-space systems in the earth sciences;
2.compositional data analysis;
4.numerical modelling and simulation;
6.prediction and prevention of geological hazard;
7.mathematical advancements in geophysics;
11.advanced topics in mathematical geology;
12.multidisciplinary data integration.
The last two days of the conference will be devoted to three one day
tutorial workshops and to geological excursions.
The argument of the tutorial workshops will be:
1.Stochastic space/time analysis and estimation (by G. Christakos);
2.Fundamentals of geostatistics (by V. Pawlowsky-Glahn);
3.New methods and concepts in mathematical geology (by F. Agterberg).
CALL FOR PAPERS
Submitted contributions will be accepted for oral, poster or software
presentation after revision by at least two referees. The Organising
Committee considers the posters and software presentations as important as oral
presentations, and no difference will be made in the publication of both
types of contribution in the proceedings volume (see below).
Poster exhibitors will attend their posters for one hour to discuss their
findings in detail with interested parties. We expect that
this format will allow the maximum interaction between participants at
Interested contributors should submit a one-page abstract of 200 to 400
words in English without figures or references before 31 January 1998.
Notification of acceptance together with the instructions for the camera-ready
manuscript (maximum 6 pages) will be mailed on 31 March 1998. The final
camera ready copy will be due before 30 May 1998. Participants at the conference
will receive a volume of extended abstracts.
