6th International Archean Symposium: Perth 2020

Australian Institute of Geoscientists > Applied Geoscience > 6th International Archean Symposium: Perth 2020

6ias 2020The premier international symposium dedicated to Precambrian geoscience and specifically the Archean, will be held in Perth in September-October 2020.

It continues the highly successful IAS meetings presented every decade by Geoconferences.

Every decade or so, an International Archean Symposium is held to document progress in our understanding of Early Earth evolution, Archean tectonics and metallogeny, and the evolution of life. It is the only dedicated scientific forum for those working in the Archean, either in research or exploiting mineral deposits. The four-to-five day program is typically supported by field excursions and workshops.  The 6IAS Organising Committee has yet to be constituted but will no doubt arrange an exciting program of presentations, field excursions and workshops reflecting a decade?s worth of advances in our understanding of the Archean.

Industry, academic and government geoscientists with an interest in the Archean will be welcomed to our beautiful city to not only enjoy the scientific and social program, but also to visit classic geological sites and mineral deposits in Western Australia.
