In 2018 we are going to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the SWIM conference in Gdańsk - a city ont the polish Baltic coast.
SWIM conferences originated in 1968, as a result of collaboration between researchers from Germany, Holland and Denmark, working on problems of freshwater-saltwater interaction in coastal aquifers.
Since that time SWIM meetings have been organized - mostly on a biennial basis - in different countries, with an increasing number of participants.
CALL FOR PAPERS
Participants are encouraged to submit either short papers (up to 4 pages) or one page abstracts. The deadline for submission is 1 Feb. 2018. Submissions will be peer-reviewed and the decision on acceptance or rejection will be communicated to the authors before 28 Feb. 2018.
Papers and abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings, distributed to the participants in printed form and as a pdf file. Only contributions of which at least one author registered for the conference will be included in the proceedings.
Additionally, full-length research papers related to the work reported on the conference can be submitted to Geological Quarterly, which is a peer-reviewed journal indexed in the Journal Citation Reports. Depending on the number of contributions, they will be published as a special post-conference issue or in regular, forthcoming issues of the journal.
