The 15th edition of the SGEM International GeoConferences was held in the period of 16 June - 25 June 2015 in Albena Resort, Bulgaria. SGEM Conferences are well recognized as the most prestigious events in the International Scientific World. SGEM Conferences cover all areas of the GeoSciences with a total of 27 scientific fields. At this conference, two posters were presented by two members of Laboratory of Metallomics and Nanotechnologies. The first contribution was focused on carbon quantum dots and their application in a study of DNA damage (Carbon quantum dots as a tool for DNA damage experiments). The second contribution was focused on preparation of micro-amalgam electrodes for detection of heavy metals in environmental samples (Cheap and quick production of micro amalgam electrodes for automated determination of soil contaminated by heavy metal ions). SGEM Conferences bring together researchers, educators and practitioners representing research and companies, educational institutions, government agencies and consulting organizations from all over the world to exchange ideas and to define the research priorities in the fields of geosciences. The objective of SGEM conference is to propose potential solutions of problems related to the global changes and to contribute to the integration of environmental consideration into the decision-making process with a view to sustainable development.
