II PAN AMERICAN WORKSHOP ON GEOMAGNETISM – II PANGEO
19 - 24 November 2017 – Vassouras – RJ - Brazil
Sponsors: Observatorio Nacional, UNAM, PAIGH, ....

We invite the community involved in geomagnetic field observations to attend the II PAN AMERICAN WORKSHOP ON GEOMAGNETISM - II PANGEO workshop to be held in Vassouras, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, from 19th to 24 November 2017. The main objective of this meeting is to organize Magnetic Observatory Practice and scientific sessions for professionals and students from three America’s and other parts of the world who are engaged in the study of geomagnetism. Also, this workshop aims to be an opportunity to improve the situation in Latin America concerning the definitive data production. At the II PANGEO we emphasize the participation of students. The Geomagnetic community is aging and students are seen as the future for our America. Several outstanding international scientists are being invited to give tutorials and review talks.
