• The 3rd CAJG will go ahead in-person as planned in Sousse, Tunisia from November 2 to 5.
  • 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 conference hotel during the event.
  • We heartily thank all those who have already submitted their abstracts. We have received 1150+ abstracts from 88 countries and we look forward to welcoming many of you at the conference in person!
  • If you have been selected, we will contact you on 1 September 2020 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 2020 to decide on the type of presentation (in-person or online).
  • COVID-19 Travel Guidance: For more details, please consult the link Your Trip to Tunisia.


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 3500 submissions a year and accepts around 800 papers for publication in its 24 annual issues (acceptance rate around 20%). 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in a stimulating environment in Hammamet, Tunisia provided attendees with opportunities to share their latest unpublished findings and learn about the latest geosciences studies.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. More details about the 1st CAJG are shown on its website.


Oil & Gaz
In a continuation of the successful 1st CAJG and 2nd CAJG, this year’s conference aims to bring geoscientists from all over the world to present and discuss their most recent findings. The 3rd 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. In particular, the 3rd CAJG will devote a special session to studies focusing on unravelling the undiscovered oil and gas resources in the Mediterranean and North Africa. Many international experts will be invited to take part in the discussion, in particular we are expecting a massive participation of researchers from North Africa Research Group (NARG) of Manchester University (UK) and other scientists based in North Africa.



The scientific committee of the 3rd CAJG invites research papers on all cross-cutting themes of Earth sciences, with a main focus on the following 15 conference tracks:

  • Track 1. Atmospheric Sciences, Meteorology, Climatology, Oceanography
  • Track 2. Biogeochemistry, Geobiology, Geoecology, Geoagronomy
