Call For Papers

Dear Colleague,
In a continuation of the first successful conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (1st CAJG), this year’s conference aims to bring geoscientists from all over the world to present and discuss their most recent findings. The 2nd CAJG will continue to publish the newest findings in the proceedings and some special issues by Springer, with a clear mission to drive greater North-South (Europe-Africa) scientific cooperation and to open doors to new and enriching collaborations with geoscientists based in Asia and the Americas. Research studies from the wide-ranging fields of earth sciences can be submitted for evaluation by the Conference Scientific Committee:
2nd Springer Conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences
25 – 28 November 2019 in Sousse, Tunisia
