Call for Papers and Participation

The Natural Sciences Unit of ATINER is organizing its 10th Annual International Conference on Geology and Earth Science, 10-13 July 2023, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Sciences and the Athens Journal of Technology & Engineering.

The aim of the conference is to bring together academics and researchers from all areas of geology, earth science and other related disciplines.

Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Mineralogy
  • Structural geology
  • Palaeontology
  • Geomorphology
  • Geological engineering
  • Physical geology (Landforms, weathering, erosion, mass wasting, earth quake, the origin of the earth)
  • Oceanic science
  • Atmospheric science
  • Meteorology
  • Climatology

Irrespectively of the theme of ATINER’s small academic events, all programs may include few sessions on general issues of education and research. You may participate as a stream leader, paper presenter, session chair or observer.  

Consistent with the theme of ATINER’s small academic events, all programs may include a few sessions on current topics in education and research.

Fee structure information is available on https://www.atiner.gr/fees.

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycenae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, an one-day visit to Delphi and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

Please submit an abstract (email only) to: atiner@atiner.gr, using the abstract submission form by the 12 December 2022 to: Dr. Haiduke Sarafian, Head, Natural Sciences Unit & Professor of Physics and Endowed Chair of John T. and Paige S. Smith Professor of Science, Pennsylvania State University, USA.

Abstracts should include the following: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Affiliation, Current Position, an email address, and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission. Decisions are reached within 4 weeks.

If you want to participate without presenting a paper, i.e. organize a stream, chair a session, review papers to be included in the conference proceedings or books, contribute to the editing of a book, or any other contribution, please send an email  to Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, President, ATINER (president@atiner.gr).

ATINER was established in 1995 as an independent academic association and its mission is to act as a forum, where academics and researchers – from all over the world –  can meet in Athens in order to exchange ideas on their research and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER.  Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into Divisions, 35 Units & 8 Centers.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to: info@atiner.gr.
