On behalf of the Russian Geological Society, I am glad to invite you to participate in the 7th International Conference on Medical Geology “MedGeo2017” to be held in Moscow, Russia, August 28 – September 1, 2017.
The Russian Geological Society (ROSGEO) hosts the Conference with the support of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of Russian Federation, Ministry of Health Protection of Russian Federation and the International Medical Geology Association (IMGA).
The location of MedGeo2017 is chosen not by chance. On the one part, it is the first time when the Conference will take place in Russia, on the other part, Russia is famous for its mineral resources, which however affect health of the professionals and population, and thus there is a need to conduct further research and share information in this field of science. In addition, we are going to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Russian Geological Society, which is the initiator and one of the main organizers of MedGeo17.
Moscow, Russia is an exciting city to visit. Known as the “City on Seven Hills”, it was founded in 1147 by Prince Yuri Dolgoruky and has the great history. Nowadays, Moscow is a modern multicultural metropolis with the population of more than 12 million people. The capital of Russia is perfect for business opportunities and cultural events. It is one of the best locations for welcoming people from all over the world.
Every two years participants gather for MedGeo Conferences, where they update the outstanding Scientific Program on the latest global perspectives on medical geology. MedGeo conference brings together geologists, geochemists, mineralogists, hydrologists, geophysicists, geographers, physicians, chemists, biologists, microbiologists, toxicologists, decision makers and others who study the effects of geological processes, objects, phenomena, materials (minerals, ores, volcano emissions, atmospheric dust, water and elements, falling into their composition and etc.) and other natural processes as well as terms under which such effects become possible.
The highly topical program of the Conference will include plenary lectures, keynote lectures, courses and workshops as well as field trips, which will give the participants the better understanding of the main issues on medical geology.
We believe that your attendance and active participation will guarantee the success of MedGeo2017 as it will be a unique opportunity to share knowledge with colleagues from all over the world.
We look forward to welcome you in Moscow in 2017!
