SCOPE

The 1st edition of International Conference on Geography and Environmental Sciences (ICGES’22) is a major point of contact between researchers, engineers and practitioners on the areas of Geography and Environment both from theoretical and application perspectives.

Contributions describing real-world problems, interdisciplinary research, experimental and/or theoretical studies yielding new insights that advance Geography and Environmental Sciences are especially encouraged.

Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the proceedings of MAASI with an ISBN. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in presenting a demo or lecturing a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.
