The number of papers dealing with this subject increased on a large scale and a lot of conferences dedicated to inverse problem theory and practice have been organ- ized worldwide.

The goal of the confer- ence is to provide a forum for professional researchers engaged in geophysical inversion, on which they can present results in the given topic. In addition to the lectures of senior researchers, PhD students of the University of Miskolc and other universities had been invited to give presentations on their latest doctoral researches. In 2020, a special actuality was given to the conference. It was dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the death of Professor Ferenc Steiner DSc (1932–2010), former head of the Geophysical Department, University of Miskolc, as well as an outstanding scientist of geo- statistics.

The successful professional career of professor Steiner is entirely connected to the Department of Geophysics, which was his first and last job. He was tireless at work, infi- nitely precise in his search for finding the scientific truth. He was a real university pro- fessor, not only because he immediately passed on the knowledge he had acquired, but because he raised his students. His interest and professional-scientific activity were diverse. Initially, he researched and achieved results in gravity and magnetic exploration, radiology, and geothermal energy.
