The AusIMM Geoscience Society is one of the member societies of the Australian Geoscience Council (AGC) which organised and hosted the 34th International Geological Congress in Brisbane in 2012. The 35th IGC was held in Cape Town in South Africa in 2016 and similar conferences are planned to continue at four-year intervals.
The Australian Geoscience Council Convention (AGCC 2018) will be held from 14-18 October in Adelaide, midway between the international IGC conventions, to promote geoscience – particularly through the Asia Pacific Region.
The 2018 Australian Geoscience Council Convention (AGCC), ‘Big Issues and Ideas in Geoscience’, is designed to highlight the fundamental role that geoscience has as a major field of science throughout the Asia Pacific Region.
AGCC will be the largest geoscience event to be held in Australasia since 2012, with delegates from all branches of geoscience plus experts in mining, energy, engineering, environment and other disciplines interested in resource development expected to attend.
AGCC 2018 is supported by all eight member organisations of the Australian Geoscience Council and is proudly sponsored by Geoscience Australia.
The second circular for the Australian Geoscience Council Convention 2018 has been released and is available here.
