Excellent response to abstract call

Over 700 abstracts have been received for the inaugural Australian Geological Council Convention to be held in Adelaide, 14 to 18 October 2018, with many great submissions for all program Themes and Subthemes. The reviewing process now commences and notifications of acceptance will be sent to authors by 28 July. In the interim you are encouraged to use the currently available Early Bird registration discount. If you are an Early Career Geoscientist, or a student, take advantage of our special registration rates here.

AGCC 2018 Big Issues and Ideas in Geoscience is an opportunity to examine and consider some of the emerging issues that affect all geoscientists and society at large. These topics will attract attention from industry, government and academia, and they will also create opportunities for non-geoscientists to engage and participate in Adelaide during Earth Science Week.  Visit the conference website to find out more.
