NEW! IMOG Awards for the Best Presentations

This year, and for the first time at an IMOG meeting, the EAOG board has decided to attribute 4 awards of 500 € each that will be distributed as follows:
• 1 award for the best oral presentation given by a PhD student
• 3 awards for the best posters (same ranking), to be attributed to master students, PhD students or post-doctoral fellows who have obtained their PhD degree less than one year ago.

The criteria for selection will be based on the scientic content, the novelty of the research and the quality of the presentation.

The awardees will be nominated by a judging panel constituted by members of the IMOG scientific committee.

Welcome address

Welcome to the 27th International Meeting on Organic Geochemistry (IMOG 2015), the official biennial conference of the European Association of Organic Geochemists (EAOG), which will be held in Prague (Praha), Czech Republic, from September 13th to September 18th, 2015. We are expecting more than 550 participants from all over the world presenting more than 80 oral and 400 poster presentations.

IMOG meetings encourage scientists and students to show excellent presentations and to discuss the research results carried out in academia and industry in the fields of Petroleum Geochemistry to Biogeochemistry. Share your best ideas with other organic geochemists during the 5 days program of oral and poster presentations and workshops and bring progress in this field of science and applications.

The conference will be held in the Clarion Congress Hotel Prague. This venue is easy to reach by public transport from the historic center and provides a unique combination of modern congress rooms and elegant banquet halls. The meeting will start with an icebreaker party in the Klášterní restaurant at the Strahov Monastery with a splendid view of the historic city of Prague. The cultural evening will bring a bit of surprise. The conference gala dinner will be held in the Žofín Palace, located on an island on the Vltava River.

In addition to the scientific programme, IMOG 2015 offers opportunities to go on fieldtrips and experience the geology of the Lower Paleozoic, Cretaceous and younger units if the Bohemian Massif. The rocks will be always intercalated with beutiful historic architecture and unforgattable landscapes. We are planning to organize several events to allow you and your partner to enjoy most of your pre- and post-conference time in Prague, Český Krumlov, Karlštejn, Turnov, and more.

We look forward to welcoming you in Prague.
