The GI0 Open Session on Geoscience Instrumentation (GI) is likely to be the only European forum with an open call for professional conference papers in the field of Geoscience Instrumentation, Software and Data Systems. There are two main aims of the GI0 Open Session "to make acquainted the scientific and engineering geoscience community a) with new instrumentation, b) with new methods or new areas of the existing instruments' application and c) with new ways to utilize observational data by novel approaches to data infrastructure designs. There is no preference to any special branch of geoscience" electromagnetic, seismic, acoustic, gravity etc. all are equally interesting. Moreover, this session is planned as an open forum where different ideas in GI and methodology of its application can be discussed and mutual exchange of this knowledge could generate the new break-through in the frontier problems of modern geoscience.
An accent within the session is made at the GI application for environmental monitoring and security providing. Corresponding examples could be archeological survey, rubbish deposits study, unexploded ordnance and/or mines detection, water dams inspecting, seismic hazards monitoring to name a few.

This session also includes contributions to the original sessions GI1.1 "General System Design, Image Processing and Data Infrastructures" and GI3.3 "Instrumentation for Polar Regions Research"
