On behalf of the 6th International conference on Medical Geology, we would like to extend a warm welcome and invite you to join us at the University of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal, for the MEDGEO2015.
MEDGEO conference bring together researchers and decision makers from the physical sciences and the medical sciences who are interested in solving health problems caused by natural processes and materials. The participants of the conference will convey expertise in a range of scientific fields, such as geochemistry, biology, engineering, geology, hydrology, epidemiology, chemistry, medicine, nutrition and toxicology.
Known as the ôVenice of Portugalö, Aveiro is surrounded by salt-flats, beaches and lagoons, and dominated by the Central Canal running through town. Once a big sea port, Aveiro lies in a region of mountains cutted by valleys and fertile lagoon plains.
The conference venue is the campus of Aveiro University, near the city centre. The conference is organized by the Aveiro University (UA), the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) and the International Medical Geology Association (IMGA).
We believe that your presence and active participation will guarantee the success of the Conference as it will be a unique opportunity to share knowledge with colleagues from all over the world.
