June 18th, 2021 – A virtual event to greet geoENV2020 and welcome geoENV2022

In light of the persistent uncertainty and travel restrictions caused by the global pandemic, the geoENV2020 Organizing Committee, in agreement with the geoENVia Secretariat, has decided with great regret to further postpone the conference to the summer of 2022, ensuring that all participants can safely enjoy the event in person to its full potential. The conference, which will be referred to as geoENV2022, will still be hosted at the University of Parma, in Italy.

Although many events have moved to a virtual format, we want to stress that the spirit of geoENV conferences relies on the opportunity to meet in person, having the chance to talk and share ideas with colleagues.

However, to leave a mark of the geoENV2020 conference and move forward, we are organizing a one-day virtual event on June 18th, 2021. During this event the three invited speakers will deliver their exciting keynote addresses and we will all say goodbye to geoENV2020 and welcome geoENV2022. In addition, we are planning to publish (with ISBN) the geoENV2020 book of abstracts and extended abstracts with those abstracts already submitted and accepted, for those authors who want their contributions to appear in a book of proceedings. The virtual event and the publication of the proceedings will be free of charge.

A new website for geoENV2022 will soon be available with the new conference dates, as well as the updated deadlines and the portal to submit your new contributions.

Please keep monitoring for more updates as they become available and contact us at for any questions regarding this postponement.

We sincerely apologize for this further postponement of the conference and we look forward to meeting you virtually on June 2021 and seeing you in Parma next year!

Action required by the authors: if your abstract has been accepted for the geoENV2020 conference, you will be contacted to know if you want it to appear in the book of abstracts or prefer to withdraw it (maybe for resubmission to geoENV2022). Authors will also be asked if they wish to publish an optional extended abstract.
