• The 4th CAJG will go ahead in-person as planned in Istanbul, Turkey from November 25 to 28.
  • Submit your abstract (max. 500 words) by the deadline of 20 May 2021.
  • Even though we hope the global public health pandemic will improve between now and November, we will be applying the strictest safety standards possible at the congress center during the event.
  • If you have been selected, we will contact you on 1 September 2021 to check whether you want to attend the conference in person and present your work to the audience directly or if you would prefer to make your presentation online.
  • You will have until 15 September 2021 to decide on the type of presentation (in-person or online).

Proceedings of Past CAJG events



The Arabian Journal of Geosciences (AJG) is a Springer journal publishing original articles on the full range of Earth sciences in partnership with the Saudi Society for Geosciences. The journal focuses on, but is not limited to, research themes which have regional significance for the Middle East, the Euro-Mediterranean, Africa, Asia and some other regions of the world. The journal receives on average 4000 submissions a year and accepts around 1000 papers for publication in its 24 annual issues (acceptance rate around 25%). It benefits from the participation of an editorial team of 15 topical Chief Editors and 100 international Associate Editors who generously help in evaluating and selecting the best papers.

Celebrating  10 years of Geosciences
In 2008, Prof. Abdullah Al-Amri, in close partnership with Springer, founded the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (AJGS). In 2018, the journal celebrated its 10th anniversary. To mark the event, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the AJGS organized the 1st Conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (CAJG) in close collaboration with Springer on 12–15 November 2018. The conference was an occasion to endorse the journal’s long-held reputation and brought together 450 authors from 70 countries, who work in the wide-ranging fields of Earth sciences. The dynamic four-day conference in a stimulating environment in Hammamet, Tunisia provided attendees with opportunities to share their latest unpublished findings and learn about the latest geosciences studies. The event also allowed attendees to meet and talk to the journal’s editors and reviewers. Three field trips were organized alongside the conference and many participants enjoyed the wonders of the geology of Tunisia.


In a continuation of the successful 1st CAJG, 2nd CAJG and 3rd CAJG, this year’s conference aims to bring geoscientists from all over the world to present and discuss their most recent findings. The 4th CAJG will continue to publish the newest findings in its proceedings and some special issues by Springer, with a clear mission to drive greater North-South (Europe-Africa) scientific cooperation and to open doors to new and enriching collaborations with geoscientists based in Asia and the Americas. Research studies from the wide-ranging fields of Earth sciences can be submitted for evaluation by the Conference Scientific Committee.
