The Department of Earth Sciences of the ETH Zurich and the Platform Geosciences of the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) cordially invite you to participate in the 18th Swiss Geoscience Meeting to be held on Friday, 6 November and Saturday, 7 November, 2020.

Please note that in light of the on-going situation with the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s edition of the SGM will not be held in physical form at the ETH Zurich, but will exclusively be held online via video-conferencing. Further details about the chosen forms for talk and poster presentation will follow.


On Friday, 6 November

Four Invited keynote lectures will be held on this year’s Plenary Session theme: “Shaping Earth: From Planet Accretion To Microbes”.


On Saturday, 7 November

a series of 25 scientific symposia will cover the diverse spectrum of current research in geosciences, encompassing the lithosphere, the hydrosphere, the cryosphere, the biosphere, the atmosphere and the anthroposphere.

Even if this year we will not be able to meet (and party) in person, we are confident that we will be able to reproduce most of the spirit of the SGMs in the digital world.

Looking forward to seeing you online!
