The First Circular of the 19th Czech-Polish Workshop

on recent Geodynamics of the Central Europe

Hradec nad Moravicí, the Czech Republic, October 25 – 27th, 2018


The Institute of Geodesy of the Brno University of Technology of the Czech Republic, in collaboration with the Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformatics of the Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences and the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics, Czech Academy of Sciences are pleased to extend an invitation to the 19th Workshop on Recent Geodynamics of the Central Europe that will be held in the town Hradec nad Moravicí  on October 25 – 27th, 2018.

YYou are hereby invited to contribute your papers and posters to this Workshop, which will be a unique chance to benefit from its scientific programme, to have a fruitful exchange of knowledge, to foster new friendships and to explore the potential of further scientific collaboration.


The Workshop will be held at the Hotel Belaria Resort,  in Hradec nad Moravicí,  near the Opava town, (Czech Republic) situated in the Nízký Jeseník Mts. in northern Moravia, on October 25 – 27th, 2018.

The surroundings of the venue, the Nízký Jeseník region, is one of the quietest, most remote and least populated areas in the Czech Republic, with a scenic, well-preserved natural landscape. The NE-SW Štramberk – Horní Benešov fault system complicated character and origin, is located nearby. It is one of the most important morphotectonic features of the region, connected with sub-recent basaltoid volcanism wich is observable in the relief along more than 130 km. Whole area is built by the Culm facies complex more than 8 km thick, with the Bruno – Vistulian units in the basement.



The scientific programme of the 19th Workshop is focused on the topics concerning the Geodynamics and recent mobility of the Central European areas; GNSS mapping in the Sudeten, the Bohemian Massif and  ALCAPA territory. Next topics areas are:

  • Geodesy – crcrustal movements, GNNS observations, precise levelling, gravity, InSAR technique, the Earth shape
  • Geophysics – seseismic, seismology, stress and strain fields, geomagnetism, magnetotellurics, heat flow
  • Geology – neotectonics, neo-volcanology, geomorpho­logy, remote sensing, brittle tectonics
