The Radek Melka prize

The Prize has been established by friends of Mr. Radek Melka to remember this outstanding young Czech scientist in structural geology who passed away at the age of 30 in 1994.

The Radek Melka Prize will be awarded to the best paper by an author from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, or Hungary of age up to 35 years in the year of publication of their paper. The Prize in 2012 will be awarded for a paper published in the year of 2011. A submitted paper has to deal with a topic in structural geology, tectonics, geodynamics, geochronology, rock geochemistry, metamomorphic, igneous, or sedimentary geology. Condition for participation in the competition is the author's presence at the Central European Tectonic Studies Group Annual Meeting.


Authors will submit their papers for the competition as pdf to zdenek.venera@geology.cz, and cc to lexa@natur.cuni.cz by 27 April 2012 or submit hardcopy (7 copies) at registration.


7 referees will be nominated by the Board of the Czech Tectonic Studies Group and Institute of Geological Sciences of the Polish Academy of Science to select the best paper considering its significance of scientific contribution, originality of approach, and author's share in the published work. The winner will be announced at the 10th CETeG Meeting during the conference dinner.

The prize is sponsored by the Czech Tectonic Studies Group and Institute of Geological Sciences of the Polish Academy of Science

The best student poster prize

The prize will be awarded by the Czech Tectonic Studies Group and Institute of Geological Sciences of the Polish Academy of Science.

The Staszek Brud prize

Details will be announced on opening of conference.


Please make your reservation of accommodation in the hotel VZ and Hotel Zemplínska Šírava

The journal Mineralia Slovaca 44/1/2012 with your contributions (papers/abstracts) will be distributed during Pre-conference field trip/registration
