      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
      also planned.






      TECHNICAL PROGRAM

      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
      technical sessions.
      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;
      3.geostatistics;
      4.numerical modelling and simulation;
      5.multivariate analysis;
      6.prediction and prevention of geological hazard;
      7.mathematical advancements in geophysics;
      8.engineering geology;
      9.image analysis;
      10.numerical volcanology;
      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
      the conference.

      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.
