34th Nordic Geological Winter Meeting 2020

Extended deadline abstracts!
We have had some questions about submission of abstracts, and are now extending the deadline to October 20th to make sure that all have time to submit their abstracts.


The Geological Society of Norway and The University of Oslo are happy to invite to the 34th Nordic Geological Winter Meeting (NGWM20)!

The meeting will take place January 8th-10th at the University of Oslo.

We are expecting 500 geoscientist from all the Nordic countries when we open the doors on UiO's campus at Blindern for the NGWM20.

The meeting is an arena for all disciplines in the field of geoscience, with the goal to contribute to knowledge sharing, networking, inspiration and professional fulfilment.
Here you will meet geoscientists from all parts of society - academia, research institutes, industry, government, the school administration and others.

And it is now possible to both submit abstracts and register for the event!


The NGWM20 web site is now open for registration and abstract submission. (We particularly welcome contributions from students and scientists at all stages of their careers).
NGWM20 will be a superb opportunity to discuss ideas, reach out to colleagues and make new contacts across national boundaries. 

The extended deadline for submitting abstracts is October 20th. The abstract should be written in English in Calibri 11pt with line spacing 1,0 and it must not exceed 400 words. Word files only!

And it is of course possible to submit more than one abstract!

If you are planning a poster presentation, the poster should be printed in A0 portrait format, 841mm*1188mm.
