About Madrid

The city is the largest of Spain and the third-largest city in Europe, with a history going back to the 9th century. Due to the rich history of Madrid it is really worth visiting some of the cultural attractions, such as the Museo Nacional del Prado and the worldfamous Bernabue football stadium.



Children under the age of 16 are not allowed to register or attend the conference, the exhibition and all family member activities.

The hotel receptionists can assist you in finding a baby-sitter when necessary.



The offical language of the 77th EAGE Conference and Exhibition is English.


PACE support

The EAGE-PACE programme supports geoscientists in developing countries to actively participate in the 77th EAGE Conference & Exhibition 2015. Speakers of accepted presentations may apply for this support. The PACE application process is already open! Please refer to this webpage for more details and the PACE application form.

Proceedings USB

The EAGE extended abstracts and exhibitors’ profiles will be available on a USB stick for all full delegates (included in the conference fee).

The Proceedings USB is sponsored by TGS.

Public transport card

A free public transport card will be available to all registered full delegates, delegates with full workshop packages and all registered family members. With this card you can travel throughout the city of Madrid. If you are not planning to use the public transport card, you can choose a voucher instead. The voucher is exchangeable for a gift, a book discount or you can donate your voucher to support a student with his/her EAGE membership fee.

The public transport card is sponsored by Dolphin Geophysical and Mitcham Industries.

The venue

IFEMA is one of the largest venues for conferences and exhibitions in Spain and Europe. It is conveniently located between the city centre and Madrid's main airport. As a result, the conference venue has good public transportation links to allow quick and easy transport to and from the IFEMA.

IFEMA - Feria de Madrid:

The handling of requests received after this date cannot be guaranteed.
