International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG)↑The International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG) is a professional multidisciplinary nonprofit society with over 600 members in more than 40 countries. The mission of the IAMG is to promote worldwide the advancement of applications of mathematics, statistics and informatics in the geosciences. The IAMG owns or sponsors three reference international journals
- Mathematical Geosciences (formerly Mathematical Geology)
- Computers and Geosciences
- Natural Resources Research
TU Bergakademie Freiberg (TUBAF)↑The Technical University Bergakademie (meaning mining academy) Freiberg (TUBAF), the resource university since 1765, is the oldest mining university of the world. It was founded in 1765 and serendipitously celebrates its 250th anniversary in the year of the conference. Today it has faculties for mathematics and informatics, for natural sciences, geosciences, engineering, material sciences and economics. Since 2007 there is an active IAMG student chapter, and one of the few universities in the world with a professorship for Mathematical Geology and Geoinformatics.
The TU Bergakademie Freiberg is the physical host of the conference.
