Penn State to Host Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG)


October 24, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — For the first time in 10 years, the Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG) will be hosted in the United States. Penn State will host the 20th annual conference Aug. 10-16, 2019, on the University Park campus. The conference will include such topics as geomathematics, geostatistics, geoinformatics and geomodeling, with a special focus on geomodeling issues at the intersection of food, water and energy. 

Penn State was selected in part due to the strength of the academic and research programs in the John and Willie Leone Family Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering (EME), the EMS Energy Institute, and the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS). The conference will be jointly hosted by IAMG, the EMS Energy Institute and EMS.  

“EMS is a world leader in generating the fundamental knowledge needed to develop novel solutions for the issues pertaining to the conference theme,” said Sanjay Srinivasan, IAMG 2019 conference chair, and professor and head of EME. “IAMG Conference speakers will share their insights into how water, climate and ecosystems will change in the face of the energy and food needs of a growing human population.”   More
