Conference and event registration.


In light of recent events in Turkey, the SEG and its local partner, MJD, are carefully monitoring the security situation for any possible adverse effects on the SEG 2016 Conference in Çeşme. At this stage the conference organizers remain confident that the event can continue but this will be revisited at the end of July, the early registration deadline.

We appreciate your support during this difficult time and assure attendees that we will not knowingly put anyone's safety in jeopardy. We will post any changes to the Conference program here.

SEG President's Welcome

We are just three months away from what promises to be one of the most exciting and rewarding conferences that the Society has organized for some years, given its location and focus on the Tethyan metallogenic belt, and the metallogenic focus will also embrace many more terranes worldwide. The technical sessions are on track to being sold out and participants will enjoy a very full program of topics covering all aspects of metallogenesis, mineral exploration, and mining, with international keynote speakers for each thematic session. The extended program includes a considerable number of pre- and post-conference short courses and field trips and is complemented by guest activities that allow participants the opportunity to explore this beautiful and culturally diverse country.

The conference has the complete support of the local commercial sector and the Governor of Çeşme Province, ensuring participants a warm welcome and a safe and secure environment to enjoy the proceedings. We also warmly acknowledge the strong support of all our sponsors, ranging from major mining and service companies to the juniors, which will ensure the success of this international conference.

I look forward to seeing you in Çeşme, Turkey this September!
