7th International IP workshop

Description of Image

We are happy to announce that the 7th International IP workshop will take place between 28th - 30th May 2024 in the heart of Lund, Sweden.

Lund University Building

Lund is well connected to the European train system. The nearest well-connected international airport is Copenhagen/Denmark, and there are a limited number of international flights to Malmö Airport.

Since Lund is usually very populated with tourist by this time of the year, we strongly recommend an early booking of the hotel. A list of hotels can be found here.

We are looking forward to welcoming all of you in Sweden in 2024!


The venue is the beautiful AF Borgen, in the heart of Lund.



For our workshop, we aim to emphasize posters and roundtable discussions, with only two invited presentations. As such, we encourage everyone to contribute with a poster and participating in the discussion rounds. The discussions will center around the topics of four sessions:

Session 1: IP for mineral exploration

Session 2: Tackling ambiguity: Towards a more reliable interpretation of IP signals

Session 3: Characterization of contaminated subsurface and monitoring of dynamic processes

Session 4: From field data acquisition and processing to inversion

A detailed description of the sessions can be found here.

The two keynote speeches on Wednesday and Thursday mornings will be delivered by Sarah Garré from ILVO Belgium and Poul Løgstrup Bjerg from DTU Denmark. Sarah will delve into The potential of geo-electrical techniques for below-ground phenotyping and breeding while Poul will address How do we improve characterization of contaminated sites: Key questions, novel methods and challenges?

Based on the abstracts and input from the scientific committee, we have identified 10 topics for the roundtable discussions. If you have additional ideas, please feel free to reach out to us. The topics are:

Modelling of primary and secondary metallic particles

Lab to field - upscaling

Lab standardization with focus on sample holders → bring your own sample holder or design sketch!

Field data processing and inversion

Effect of fluid conductivity variations and non-equilibrium on the IP signal

Beyond geophysical inversion: towards process-based inversion of IP data

The IP signal of organic matter / compounds

IP for characterizing and monitoring contaminated sites

IP in controlled-source EM

Organization of the International IP community

A detailed description of the roundtable topics including the research questions can be found here.

The actual workshop program is available here.

Abstract and Posters

For our planned program we have welcomed abstracts for posters only.

A list of posters is available here.

Do not forget to prepare your poster in portrait mode in A0 format!

All abstracts are openly available and published on our github page.

You can download the book of abstracts here.

Young Scientists

For the young scientists, we have planned two events. The first one starts already before the workshop.

It will be an online meeting for young scientists independent of their attendance at the workshop. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 22, at 3:30 pm. To register for the meeting please contact Dennis Kreith via email

Furthermore, there will be an evening event on the first evening (May 28th) after the Icebreaker. More information about that event will be provided during the conference.

Special Issue

There will be a Special Issue for the IP workshop ("Advances in Induced Polarisation"). It will be published by Geophysical Journal International.

The tentative deadline is February 2025. Please inform us via email if you intend to submit a manuscript!


The registration deadline has now passed. If you are still interested in attending the workshop or need an invitation letter for Visa purposes, contact us via induced.polarization@gmail.com.


Given the significance of our event in the IP community and the visibility it garners, we believe it presents a unique opportunity for companies/organizations to showcase your commitment to the field, establish deep relationships with researcher and professionals and to promote your brand. We have set up three main sponsorship packages, each coming with more perks and levels of exposure to promote your company/organization.

Gold Silver Bronze
  • Logo placement on our event webpage and conference program.
  • A dedicated booth in the conference area.
  • Two complimentary tickets.
  • Opportunity for a field demonstration or company presentation.
  • Logo placement on our event webpage and conference program.
  • A dedicated booth in the conference area.
  • One complimentary ticket.
  • Logo placement on our event webpage and conference program.

In addition to the above-mentioned packages, we are more than happy to tailor sponsorship opportunities to suit your unique needs and desires. If your company/organization wishes to offer more than what's outlined in our packages or has specific requests, we are open to discussions.

Just get in contact with us!
