The conference covers all branches of the Geosciences, including geology and geophysics, geomorphology, climate science, hydrology and oceanography, informatics, society, education, and outreach, etc. The participants from the University of Malta all presented their latest research results at the conference. Dr Matthew Agius was also co-convener of the session 'Imaging, modelling and inversion to explore the Earth’s crust and upper mantle', while Prof Aaron Micallef, although not present, was convener of the session 'Submarine Geomorphology'.
