The abstract deadline of GeoMap, the first international Workshop on Practical Aspects
of Geochemical Exploration and Mapping with Logratio Techniques, held at the Faculty
of Science, Palacky University Olomouc, Czech Republic, from June 17-20, 2014, was extended
to January 26, 2014!
GeoMap offers a practical forum of discussion for people concerned with the statistical
treatment, modelling and interpolation of compositional data in geochemical applications,
particularly focused on geochemical exploration and mapping. The workshop will mainly consist
of a series of invited lectures on the problems of geochemical mapping, followed by discussions
on each of the compositional topics raised. The goal of the workshop is to build teams to attack
each of these specific topics and to provide enough time space for panel discussions.
GeoMap will touch a wide variety of problems and oppportunities that the log-ratio approach
to compositional data analysis brings to regional geochemistry contexts. Particularly, the main
specific feature of the workshop will be discussions for concrete problem solving and team
building. Complementarily, also contributions of participants from the fields of interest of
the workshop are warmly welcome, specially if they portray unsolved problems. All participants
should be preliminary familiar with the log-ratio approach to compositional data analysis
(otherwise, an introductory course may be provided on June 16-17, 2014).
