The 2019 GEOHEAT International Geothermal Conference will be held on September in Kamchatka, Russia. The deadline for registration and abstract submission is on April 15, 2019.

GEOHEAT is an annual international geothermal conference which will be held on September 2019 in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on basis of Research Geotechnological Center of Far Eastern Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences.

Programme overview

  • Late August – Early September, 2019
    Pre-conference scientific field trips and excursions (for those who wish and inform the organizing committee about it in advance)
  • 28 August – 02 September, 2019
    Pre-conference short courses for young academics, students and researchers
  • 03 September – 04 September, 2019
    Plenary, panel sessions and sections
  • 05 September – 06 September, 2019
    Post-conference scientific field trips and excursions

The event will contribute to coming up with solutions for a number of fundamental problems such as: the development of theoretical issues of geothermics and heat flow of the Earth; establishment of new features of thermophysical processes in the geothermal water field development with supercritical thermodynamic parameters; the establishment of geothermal parameters of the Earth crust on basis of advanced experimental technologies (continuous thermal core logging technology, instruments for thermal property measurements at formation conditions, accounting of rocks heterogeneity, as well as micro- and macroanisotropy), and on this basis the geothermal resources re-evaluation, including geothermal resources maps.

The planned event will be of great importance for the development of the above directions. Since the event will draw not only representatives of academic institutions, universities, and research laboratories, but also representatives of the geothermal industry, private geothermal research companies, and resource developers, the scientific results can lead to practical applications.

Goals:

The conference aims to distribute scientific and industrial information concerning the current state of geothermal science, technology and industry; to share knowledge and results in theory, methodology, technology and applications of geothermal science; to bring together scientists, researchers, engineers, students and managers interested in geothermal science; to promote geothermal innovations; to provide a forum to exchange ideas on the exploration, development and use of geothermal resources; and to encourage international communication and collaboration.

Important deadlines:

  • April 15, 2019 – Registration and abstract submission
  • April 20, 2019 – Notification of abstract acceptance
  • April 29, 2019 – Second announcement
  • May 15, 2019 – Submission of full papers for publication
  • May 31, 2019 – Notification of full papers acceptance
  • June 1, 2019 – Preliminary agenda
  • July 1, 2019 – Final agenda

Registration is free of charge. For more details on the short courses, suggested topics, and abstract submission guidelines, you may visit the GEOHEAT website.
