The interdisciplinary symposia to be held at the event will include:

- Orogeny and crustal evolution through time;
- Climate - past and present;
- Life on Earth- origin and evolution;
- Sedimentary basins the record of tectonic and magmatic processes;
- Mineral deposits - geology and genesis;
- Magma and fluids in the mantle;
- Continental ocean transition zones and oceanic lithosphere;
- Lithospheric properties and processes;
- Mineral deposits - geology and genesis;
- Geosciences, environment and society;
- Polar Earth sciences.

The EUG started in 1980 as a Study Group of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. Its aim is to develop cooperation among scientists in different fields of Earth and planetary sciences. Its membership is strictly individual and no-one may represent any national organization, institution or laboratory.
