The IGSC is the International Geosciences Student Conference is organized for students from
various fields within geosciences and its related fields. It will take place in Aachen,
Germany, from July 5 – 10, 2020, and will be supported by the EAGE Student Fund and hosting
a regional qualifier for the EAGE GeoQuiz in 2021 during the EAGE Annual Meeting in Madrid, Spain.
The theme of the IGSC 2020 is as follows and revolves around the following four major topics:
-Applied Geosciences in a Modern Society.
-Acting responsibly for a sustainable future.
-Energy – Environment & Sustainability – Engineering – Raw Materials and Mineral Resources.
Since its conception in 2010 in Bucharest, the IGSC has been organised in various countries and
by several students of different nationalities. After Berlin in 2013, the honour comes
back to Germany to the city of Aachen, a wonderful opportunity in a perfect central European
location. Uppsala, Sweden, the home of the 2019 event, is where the journey of the IGSC 2020 began.
Our mission, to keep delivering science and knowledge to our fellow colleagues—
the students—is the central point of this event.
Our aim of the IGSC 2020 is to provide a platform for students at all levels to present their current research
and thesis work to other students from around the world, scientists from different universities,
research institutes, industry representatives, and sponsors. By giving the students this opportunity
through oral and poster presentations, students will have an impact on the geoscience community,
exchange ideas with peers, enhance their knowledge, and expand their professional network.
We, the organisers, look forward to receiving abstracts for posters and oral presentations related to the above-mentioned topics and other geoscience-related topics.
More information on the abstract submission, deadlines, and the registration for the
IGSC 2020 at https://igsc2020.rwth-aachen.de/abstracts/ and https://igsc2020.rwth-aachen.de/registration/.
Similarly, keynote speeches around the themes of the IGSC 2020 will provide students
with a broader insight into these fields and teach a critical judgment of current developments
in science. Technical and soft skills workshops carried out by leaders from the industry and academia
complement the programme and provide students with the opportunity of gaining practical skills
and hands-on experience in current trending geoscience topics. Students will strengthen and
expand their speaking and presenting skills which are essential in today´s world!
An extensive social programme including field trips, an icebreaker party, a farewell party, evening activities,
and a post-conference programme will complement the conference. Be sure not to miss out on this
great opportunity to learn, network, and have fun. For more information about the event, please visit
