The 5th International Conference of Geological Engineering Faculty, Universitas Padjadjaran 2020

Call for Papers

ICGEF is a scientific conference aimed to gather Geoscientist to promote their research in the field of Geosciences and applied geology, to exchange ideas and build networks which encourage valuable and significant collaborations among academicians, engineers, scientist as well as practitioners. This conference would surely establish a continuous and great impacts in Geoscience field both regionally and internationally. It includes plenary, keynotes and invited speeches, and oral presentations on different topics in Geoscience.


As COVID-19 has become a pandemic since March 2020, this conference will be held online (fully remote). We are creating a virtual environment where all the participants can present their research as well as participating in all the sessions virtually in several different rooms, using slides, or other visual materials. The virtual meeting allows each of these to be developed in ways that expand engagement, including making the pre-recorded content available over longer time periods to watch (or binge) at your convenience, and allowing more time for online chats and engagement with speakers, including plenary speakers.

All sessions, including keynotes and plenaries will be offered in streaming online.


Maintaining High-Quality Conference Standards and Publication Standards 

The conference is specially designed by the TIIKM Research and Development team together with a committee of international experts with the guidance of the Academic Governing Body of TIIKM conferences. The 5th CGEF 2020 is under the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Theme of the 5th ICGE 2020 Conference

Stay Safe with Geoscience

As the world have been impacted from the Covid-19 pandemic, the fast-changing world have been slowed down. However, the spirit of exchanging research ideas in order to contribute to the advancement in this field, needs to set up high. We might not be able to gather in person to keep ourselves safe during this pandemic, but we still could have a profound conference here.

The theme is broad enough to cover all the field in Geoscience. All presentation formats are orals and given in a consecutive set of presentations called “Session”. Thus, We cordially invite you to participate in this conference by submitting your abstract in the following topics, but not limited to:

Scientific Sessions / Conference Tracks

  • Petrology, Volcanology, and Geochemistry
  • Petroleum System and Exploration

ICGFE 2020 Conference Tracks/Scientific Session Themes Description

  1. Petrology, Volcanology and Geochemistry

This session will cover the deep earth experimental and theoretical advances which includes petrology as the basic science in modeling of erupted volcano, and geochemistry to explain geological processes both in the surface (weathering, diagenesis) and in the subsurface (metamorphism, volcanism). The chemical and physical evolution of rocks and minerals, including the utilization of isotopes are also helpful as the tools of geochemical fingerprints to explain the process of how certain products related to petrology section and volcanoes occurred on Earth. The section is also accommodates interest in studying and mitigating the hazard of volcanoes.

  1. Petroleum System and Exploration

This session will include the latest development of petroleum system and modern approaches used in petroleum exploration. Broad spectrum of petroleum geology is included here from the prospect of sub-volcanic reservoir, fore arc basin for next exploration targets to the modern approaches in source to reservoir characterization, reservoir quality and diagenesis, well log analysis, petroleum sedimentology, clastic and non-clastic reservoir description, basin modelling, organic geochemistry, petroleum prospect analysis, geophysical approaches. It also accommodates the topic both conventional and unconventional resources such as shale gas and oil, oil/ gas shale, tight sand, or any other reservoir.

  1. Earth history and Paleoclimate Changes

Knowledge of the Earth history could reveal the Earth’s prevailing condition and the geological processes behind it. Some earth scientists use these information to find and develop energy and natural resource. This session invites researches in historical geology, tectonic history, geochronology, marine geosciences, paleoceanography, and paleoclimatology. Researchers in the section applies a diverse array of tools including numerical modeling research, theoretical models, field measurements, ocean drilling, and laboratory experiments. This session will focus on research data records to reconstruct diverse aspects of past environmental change, including climate, paleoceanography and anthropogenic land use. Timescales of interest can range from single events to millennial-scale variability. Paleoceanography concentrates on the historical backdrop of the seas in the geologic past and to share current knowledge of subseasonal to decadal paleoclimate variability and as well as the predictability and global impacts of such variability.

Especially welcome are abstracts that present solutions to chronostratigraphic & paleoclimate changes issues using micropaleontological analysis, geomagnetism, or other supporting tools.

  1. Geo-Computation and Remote Sensing Technology

The utilization of the latest technology in earth survey has proofed that computerized data and digital imaging of the Earth bring a lot of new insight for the development in this field. This session will cover the utilization of computation and remote sensing tools including software usage in quantitative geomorphology, the usage of remote sensing to locate new resources, and any other related use of these tools.

  1. Hydrogeology, Environmental and Engineering Geology

Environment and water are important elements in our lives. The escalating usage of chemically based soap, detergent, and disinfectant, mainly during this pandemic has brought our environment in danger. In addition, the increase in population number has shifted the settlements into both coastal and mountain areas, which endanger the environment as well as its water management. Researches to solve these issues are invited to be presented. The Section also concentrates its efforts on scientific problems of natural hazards and geo-risks analysis and on the development of solid links between geological engineering, hydrogeology and social sciences communities and implementation of effective strategies and designs for hazard mitigation and disaster management worldwide.

  1. Human Geosciences and Multidisciplinary

Geosciences are one of the important fields which directly impact humanities including socio-economic, geopark, geoheritage, geo-forestry, military defenses, geoscience education and policy making development. This proposed session accommodates the non-technical issues involving geoscience and other disciplines to solve modern world difficulties. Providing learning opportunities about how the Geosciences can inform policy making, best practices in communicating science, and how to effectively work with communities and decision makers.
