Call for Papers
The Bulletin of the Geological Society of Greece – BGSG (ISSN 2529-1718) is an international, professional, peer-reviewed, and interdisciplinary journal published in English by the Geological Society of Greece and the National Documentation Centre of Greece, Athens. It aims to advance and disseminate knowledge in all main branches of geosciences. It also promotes communication among academia, government, business and industry who are engaged in the solution of geo-environmental problems, natural hazard preparedness and mitigation, exploitation of natural resources etc. Moreover, it seeks to promote interdisciplinary research on global issues such as climate change, natural disasters, environmental pollution and wastes, renewable and non-renewable natural resources and sustainability of solutions. Each journal volume will contain a variety of articles, fast-track letters, book reviews and so on.
Our journal welcomes papers in both standard and developing fields of geology, as well as papers highlighting the interaction between geological disciplines and other disciplines. It publishes original research papers, research and policy reviews and notes, and book reviews in English.

The 14th International Congress of the Geological Society of Greece, successfully completed its works and is now a historical event. In this great event of Geosciences, the highest expression of our Scientific Society, more than 500 participants, including more than 200 students and 80 young scientists, attended the congress works or specific sessions. 60% of young scientists, the future of geology. There were 259 new scientific papers presented, 170 oral presentations and 89 scientific posters. Invited speakers, many Greeks and foreign colleagues, but especially young researchers, young scientists and PhD students, presented in the best possible way conclusions and results at the forefront of scientific research in the world today.
Parallel events, such as the geological films screenings and "Round Tables" for Geosciences in Education, of the Greek Association of Geologists, for Active Faults, completed the strictly scientific presentations, where almost all objects of the wider circle of Geosciences converged, basic and applied. Once again the high level of research of Geoscientists was demonstrated. The Organizing Committee tried and organized in the best possible way the step of the Congress. But the Congress belongs to those that surround it, and participate in science development.
The Congress belongs to all of you, and the organizers and the School of Geology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki thank you very much. Our next big meeting is in Athens in 2019.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee
Spyros B. Pavlides
Professor of Geology

The 14 International Conference of the Geological Society of Greece will take place on
25-27 May 2016, in Thessaloniki, northern Greece. GSG conferences are multidisciplinary
earth science events, focusing on the broader Aegean region and beyond.
You are cordially invited to participate in this conference; young researchers in particular
are strongly encouraged to submit their research results, as GSG 2016 will assist them in
various innovative ways. Further details will be rolling out throughout 2015.
Looking forward to seeing you in Thessaloniki!
