We are pleased to announce that Registration and Abstract Submission is open for the ProGEO Symposium 2023, hosted by Charnwood Forest Geopark.

The Old Man of Beacon Hill, within Charnwood Forest Geopark

Registration includes:

  • Icebreaker reception

  • Three days of scientific sessions, including talks and poster sessions

  • Keynote Lecturer - more details here

  • An afternoon mid-Symposium field trip to Bradgate Park

  • Lunch for the three days of the Symposium

  • Tea & Coffee refreshments throughout the Symposium

  • Special delegate discounts at selected local businesses

For ProGEO members who book before June 9th, registration can be purchased for as little as £85. This is due to the support put in place by the ProGEO Executive. It is always cheaper to join ProGEO and secure the discount rate, than pay the non-member rate. Students can join ProGEO for as little as 10 EUR. You can join ProGEO here: ProGEO members will be receiving their discount code via email in the coming weeks, or when they purchase membership.

​Early Bird (until June 16th)

​Late Registration (June 16th to Sept 18th)

Registration is now open and can be accessed HERE. If you are using the website for the first time, you will need to sign up to be able to access the Registration and Abstract Submission systems.

Abstract submission is also now open. We welcome submissions on topics from all areas of geoheritage and geoconservation, including methodologies, site management, interpretation, education, legislation, geodiversity, and Geoparks. The meeting will feature a special session on the Conservation of Palaeontological Heritage - we particularly encourage submissions on this topic, though all abstracts associated with the broad themes of geoheritage and geoconservation are welcome.

Deadline for Abstract Submission for those Applying for ProGEO Travel Fund:

23:59 BST (GMT+1) April 7th, 2023. More details can be found HERE.

Deadline for Abstract Submission:

NOW EXTENDED TO 23:59 BST (GMT+1) June 16th, 2023

Each registered delegate can submit two abstracts as the presenting author: one to be presented as a talk, and one to be presented as a poster. There is no limit to the number of abstracts a delegate can be a non-presenting co-author on.

Talks will be 12 minutes in length, with 3 minutes for questions.

Posters should be presented in A0 portrait format.

All abstract submissions will be peer reviewed by the Scientific Committee which comprises an international panel of experts on topics in geoheritage. Authors will be contacted as soon as possible following the completion of this process with details of whether their abstract has been accepted, and in what format it will be presented. The decisions of the Scientific and Organising Committees are final.

The abstract guidelines are as follows:

1. All information, including the title and abstract text, should be submitted in English, and using sentence case, e.g. not All-Caps

2. The title is limited to 300 characters, including punctuation and spaces.

3. Use the full name of institutions, e.g. write out "Natural History Museum", rather than "NHM".

4. Full postal address is not required, just the institution name and the country

5. Abstract length is limited to 2500 characters, including punctuation and spaces. There is no need to include a bibliography. If you do include a bibliography it will count towards the character limit. The abstract submission system will not accept abstracts that are longer than the limit.

Abstract submission is now open and can be accessed HERE​. If you are using the website for the first time, you will need to sign up to be able to access the Registration and Abstract Submission systems.
