GEOSCIENCE WORLD CONGRESS - BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, 5-10 AUGUST 2012 (completed)

This large and prestigious Geoscience World Congress will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, 5-10 August 2012. The scientific program will cover all aspects of the geosciences. It will demonstrate how geoscience knowledge and applications are contributing directly to meeting societal needs, for example through innovation in the resources and energy based industries, better informed land and water management, enhanced understanding and mitigation of climate change and geohazards, and building major cities and infrastructure. The 34th IGC will incorporate the 2012 meetings of IUGSÕ Commissions, Task Groups and Joint Programs, as well as the 2nd Young Earth-Scientists (YES) Congress. We invite all geoscience groups internationally to consider integrating their 2012 meetings into the 34th IGC, to benefit from the opportunities it offers for synergies and networking.

There will be about 40 pre and post Congress field trips offered, and a major exhibition. The GeoHost support program for delegates from low income nations will be linked to participation in training workshops. The 34th IGC will feature a major Theme dedicated to geoscience benefiting low income nations, and we are expecting to receive UNESCO patronage Ð these factors should assist other delegates from developing nations in their applications to international funding agencies for support to attend the Congress.

We extend a very warm invitation to the 34th IGC in Brisbane Ð an exciting sub-tropical city characterized by great August weather and the gateway to some of AustraliaÕs most famous tourist destinations.
The committee acknowledges that the Congress will occur during Ramadan and regrets the inconvenience this will cause some delegates. Special arrangements will be made during the congress to assist the observance of Ramadan.

The Congress website www.34igc.org will be the main vehicle for dissemination of updated information. We look forward to seeing you in Brisbane in 2012.For the First Circular for the 34th IGC Conference, click the following link
