Geoscience Int. Conf. OCT 21-23 2019 Prague Czech Republic
The 7th edition of Neutrino Geoscience international conference will be held in the heart of historic Prague, Czech Republic, in the Old Town near the Charles Bridge, from Monday Oct 21—Wednesday Oct 23, 2019.
We welcome contributions on all the relevant broad topics, including physics of neutrinos, neutrino detection and data analysis, geophysical and geochemical models of Earth’s crust, mantle and core, the Earth’s energy budget, and its dynamics and thermal evolution.

The 7th edition of Neutrino Geoscience international conference will be held in the heart of historic Prague, Czech Republic on 21–23 October, 2019 (Monday–Wednesday).
Geoneutrinos, neutrinos emitted in decays of naturally occurring radionuclides, bring unique and direct information about aspects of the Earth’s composition that are intimately linked to fundamental questions about the Earth’s energy budget and thermal evolution. Geoneutrino research provides a new tool to study the Earth. Measurements by existing experiments estimate our planet’s radiogenic heat production and have begun to constrain compositional models of the silicate Earth.
At the meeting we expect to hear updates on geoneutrino measurement by both the KamLAND and Borexino experiments, to get status reports from SNO+, JUNO, and Jinping, and to continue the needed productive discussions between neutrino physicists and geoscientists in order to advance the great science of geoneutrinos.
We welcome contributions, both talks and poster presentations, on all the relevant broad topics, including physics of neutrinos, neutrino detection and data analysis, geophysical and geochemical models of Earth’s crust, mantle and core, the Earth’s energy budget, and its dynamics and thermal evolution.
VENUE & ACCESS
The Conference will be held at the Conference center of the Czech Association of Scientific and Technical Societies, located in the heart of historic Prague in the Old Town, in the immediate vicinity of the Charles Bridge.
Address: Novotného lávka 5, Prague 1, Czech Republic (Google Map, Mapy.cz)
Currency: Czech Republic has its own currency, Czech crown, or Koruna česká (“Kč”), or CZK. Exchange rates are around EUR 1 = CZK 26, and USD 1 = CZK 23.

Tickets can be purchased at the airport using a ticket machine or at the public transportation desk. When entering the bus you have to validate the ticket (yellow stamping boxes on the bus).
From “Praha Hlavní nádraží" (Main railway station) to conference venue:
Take the underground (line C, the only one there) to station "Muzeum” (1 stop). Change to underground line A and take it to station "Staroměstská". From there it is a 5 min, 200 m walk to the meeting venue (map, also image below).
You will need one public transportation ticket per person (24 CZK, about ~0.9 EUR, valid for 30 minutes) for the transit. Tickets can be purchased using the machines near the entrance to the underground or at newspaper kiosks. You have to validate the ticket upon entering the underground (yellow stamping boxes).
