About the event

Tirana has been chosen to host the 7th Congress of Balkan Geophysical Society (BGS).

The 7th BGS Congress is the largest and most comprehensive geophysical event in the Balkan region.

The three-day program consist of a large conference and technical exhibition providing information on the role that geophysics plays in the realms of geology, reservoir-petroleum, mining, seismology, geothermal energy, engineering and environment in the Balkan region.

In all the six BGS Congresses run from 1996 to 2011, 1062 papers have been presented. Only in the 2011 congress which took place in Budapest, Hungary, 142 papers by 397 authors from

15 Balkan countries were presented. The seventh BGS Congress, which will be held in Tirana in 2013, includes papers presentation of research papers (>150 expected to be presented), technical exhibition (reporting the current progress of geophysics) and a field trip to visit the Albanides, part of the Folded Mediterranean Alpine Belt. Each Congress has hosted nearly one thousand experts from about 25 different countries.

We are privileged and honored to host the 7th Congress of Balkan Geophysical Society (BGS), in Tirana. We believe that everyone is already fully dedicated to this triennial event principally designed to enhance geophysics. Geophysics is an area of science that integrates geology, mathematics, and physics in order to understand how the Earth works. The primary objective of BGS is to secure the future of geophysics. We aim to invest in future scientific leaders and in innovation, influence properly policymaking with the best scientific advice and invigorate geophysics and education in the area. In addition, we aim to increase access to the best scientific solutions.

Many of the issues we tackle are global in nature and require collaboration among all of us and we sincerely support collaboration with young scientists. At each triennial meeting, we discuss current technologies, as innovation is a means to address sustainable development. The backbone of GBS is active participation and sincere and concrete collaboration among participants for the benefit of society. We particularly welcome active and young geophysicists.

We look forward to meeting you at the 7th BGS Congress, Conference and Technical

Exhibition in Tirana, from 7th -10th October 2013.

On behalf of the BGS Steering Committee

Prof. Dr. Salvatore BUSHATI Chairman of Congress
