Upcoming IAGA events

A lot of science happening... Mark your calendars for what interests you in the upcoming IAGA events! 

SEDI Conference 2022

The 17th Symposium of the Study of the Earth's Deep Interior will be held in Zurich, Switzerland from July 11th to 15th, 2022. SEDI aims for an understanding of the evolution of the Earth's deep interior and the effects it has on the structures and processes observed on the surface. 

The meeting will be hybrid and the programme can be found here.

EM Induction Workshop 2022

The 25th Electromagnetic Indiction Workshop will be held in Γ‡eşme, Turkey from September 11th to 17th, 2022. EMIW research involves the study of all theoretical and practical aspects of the distribution of electrical properties, specifically electrical conductivity, within the interior of planets and their relationship with physical parameters.

The programme for the workshop can be found here.

SEDI Summer School 2022

The 9th edition of the doctoral school in Solid Earth Sciences will be held in Les Houches, France from October 24th to November 4th, 2022. The school trains early career researchers in various aspects of Earth Sciences, like seismology, mineralogy, geophysics, etc.

The program includes lecture series, seminars and a field excursion. Details about the programme can be found here.

IAGA Blogs turns 1!

πŸŽ‰ Happy Birthday to us πŸŽ‰


Thank you for making this initiative work and for spreading word about us!

IAGA Social Media started this adventure hoping to create content and promote our science. We promise to work harder and to reach out to more people!

You are always welcome to send us any suggestions or critics you may have at our emails or social media platforms. 

Keep going on this ride with us where we hope to entertain you with science :D


Life of a Scientist

If you've ever been curious about what people in academics do, here are 5 hints -

1) The first thing they do is complain about the number of emails. Never approach a scientist after they've returned from a vacation.

2) They can give impromptu presentations. They are so used to explaining their results that they don't even need time to prepare most of the time. However, tell them to explain it in short, and they'll be lost.

3) They are always busy. Writing grants. Attending meetings. Teaching. And doing administrative work. Science, you ask? Somewhere in between.

4) Airports are their frenemies. They travel all the time. For conferences, for workshops, for meetings... You name it, they have travelled for it.

5) Most of the times they are working to figure out why something is not working rather than why it is.

However, one important thing to remember while interacting with them is to never insult their topic. They have spent far too long a time studying and working on it. They are naturally very sensitive to it and will defend it with all they have (which basically means they'll eat you alive)!

Shivangi Sharan is a third year PhD student at the Laboratory of Planetology and Geosciences in France. Her research focusses on the study of the magnetic field of planets and to infer their internal structure from it. She is an active member of the IAGA Blog Team and can be contacted via e-mail here.
