INVITATION

On behalf of the Geological Society of the Philippines Scientific Committee, we are thrilled to invite you to participate in the annual Geological Convention or GeoCon2024. This year’s conference theme, “GeoCon2024: Filipino geologists - Bridging geoscience, technology, and industry for a better Philippines” aims to bring together professionals and researchers from a wide range of disciplines in geosciences.

The conference will serve as a conduit for geoscience professionals and academics from different fields to have a dialogue on a broad range of topics that includes the role of geoscience in energy development; geochemical and geophysical approaches to study volcanism and tectonics; seismic, landslide, and earthquake engineering studies; hazard recognition, forecasting, and mitigation; and future environmental issues and trends.

GeoCon2024 offers both oral and poster scientific sessions.
