GEODOCT 2020 is scheduled for 27 November 2020 via MS Teams.

GEODOCT represents the annual scientific symposium of the Doctoral School of Geology (DSG), attended by doctoral and postdoctoral students. Master students of the Faculty of Geology and Geophysics can also attend GEODOCT.

The GEODOCT 2020 programme and abstracts are now online.

The GEODOCT 2020 talks will be given online, in Romanian language, using the Microsoft Teams platform, MS Powerpoint and the time format 15 minutes (talk) + 5 minute (questions and answers).
