Geoscience Australia to sponsor AGCC 2018


The Australian Geoscience Council Convention, AGCC 2018, has announced that Geoscience Australia will be the patron sponsor of the event, which will be held in Adelaide from Sunday 14th to Thursday 18th of October next year.

The Convention, which is expected to attract more than 2,000 delegates from Australia and overseas, will cover all aspects of geoscience, with technical themes on theoretical and applied geoscience, mineral and energy resources, environmental and societal science, geoscience education and communication, and emerging technologies.

Geoscience Australia Chief Executive Officer Dr James Johnson said sponsoring the convention was a great opportunity to showcase the importance of geoscience and the work of the organisation in the lives of all Australians, from maps that support decision making and GPS positioning on your mobile phone, to environmental monitoring and understanding the nation’s resource wealth.

“The convention is a great opportunity for us to come together with representatives from around the world and across the field of geoscience to discuss not only scientific developments and emerging technologies, but also new approaches to education and communication” he said.
