Petr Vaníček Wins Best Paper Award

Professor Emeritus Petr Vaníček attended SGEM 2018, the 18th International Multidisciplinary Scientific GeoConference, which was held in Albena, Bulgaria, from 30 June until 9 July, 2018. During the conference, he read a paper entitled "Our metre is too short: blame gravity for it” based on the research that he and his Ph.D. student Ismael Foroughi had carried out during the previous six months. To his surprise, the paper was voted by the participants to have been the best one given at the conference. Professor Vaníček was presented with a trophy and a certificate.

SGEM is an Austrian organization that stages conferences organised primarily for Russian and East European scientists. This particular conference had about 1,000 attendees, with very few of them being from other parts of the world.
