The GeoAdvances 2017 conference has been successfully held in Safranbolu. From 17 different countries (Italy, Australia, Morocco, Spain, India, Malaysia, etc), more than 130 papers has been presented in the conference. This is the greatest international participant number in the history of Karabuk University. Pictures and Videos from the event are released.

The papers presented in GeoAdvances 2017 have been published on ISPRS Annals and ISPRS Archives listed in the ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) of the Web of Science, SCOPUS, the E/I Compendex,and the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) indexes.

This year we would like to welcome you at Karabuk University (KBU) for;
