The conference welcomes all kinds of contributions advancing the use of mathematics and informatics in the geosciences. Methodological and applied contributions are equally welcome.

IAMG2015 will offer session covering the main "backbone" of the research from members of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences. Submissions to these general sessions are organized through a system of classification of contributions by very broad topics. This system is structured using a two-fold topic/method classification system, conceived for several goals. First, it minimizes the chance that parallel presentations important to the same person occur simultaneously. Second, it allows to bring together in the same session people who might otherwise not be aware of their common research interests. Third, it will give rise to the general sessions themselves. Apart of this broad system of general sessions, focus sessions (much in the flavor of classical sessions) are organized towards narrower specific topics of special interests.

The use of a topic classification system, will allow the definition of flexible general sessions defined by the contributions rather than the interests of the organizers. The general sessions will arise dynamically from the conjunction of several compatible contributions, selected because they share the same or similar topics, methods or field of application. These sessions will be defined together with the final scientific programme.

During submission, authors must choose one tag from the list of mathematical/computer science topics, and one tag from the list of geoscience topics (see below). There are as well general "grab bag" tags, for submissions that do not fit this classification system clearly. It is also possible to select more tags as secondary topics.
