Some of you may recall that the 2nd Conference on Geostatistics Applied to Environmental Applications took place in Valencia on 1998. At that time, internet navigation was exotic, and so were Powerpoint presentations, geoENV was still being called _European Conference_, and cellular phones had to be backpack-carried.
Fourteen years later, **on September 19-21, 2012**, geoENV returns to Valencia as a well established conference. We hope that many of you, who visited Valencia then, will come back, and that those of you who did not will take the opportunity to attend this ninth edition.
You will have the chance to visit one of the cities that has changed most in the last 14 years, _if you do not believe it just check the video below_:
