SEG 2016 Conference: Tethyan Tectonics and Metallogeny
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!
