Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 1st International Congress on Earth Sciences (ICES 2017), in SE Asia http://fos.ubd.edu.bn/foscon/ envisions taking a further step in geosciences congresses, by creating uniquely emerged, topic-related sessions. It will take place at the University of Brunei Darussalam, from 15–18 November, 2017. Our main objective is to bring together geoscientists from all over the world to share and exchange ideas and to present recent advances in topics of Earth Sciences. ICES 2017 will be the place to foster collaborations and networking among peers. We expect young researchers to meet with senior scientists in an effort to meet experience and expertise. Highly respected keynote speakers will open the sessions.

Possible themes of ICES 2017 have been classified into four core topics, and include, but are not limited to:


Selected papers (from oral and poster presentations, including ePoster) from ICES 2017 will be published in this Special Issue, aiming at gathering a number of peer-reviewed publications on new advances in Earth Sciences. Gratefully acknowledged by the Organising Committee of ICES 2017, the publication fees for the papers are kindly being sponsored by Geosciences.

It is our pleasure and honor to welcome all interested contributors to the 1st International Congress on Earth Sciences, in SE Asia, at Brunei Darussalam, and we look forward to receiving your submissions.
