Perth will host the 2nd Australasian Exploration Geoscience Conference (AEGC) from Monday 2 to Thursday 5 September 2019 at Crown Perth.
The AEGC is the largest petroleum and mineral geoscience conference in Australasia, and incorporates the West Australian Basin Symposium (WABS) and the ASEG-PESA International Geophysical Conference and Exhibition.
The event will be jointly hosted by the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG), Australian Society of Exploration Geophysicists (ASEG), and Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia (PESA).
The theme for the 2019 conference is “Data to Discovery”. The AEGC technical program committee has a focus on Geology, Geophysics, and Geochemistry and how these are applied in exploration for both Petroleum and Mineral systems in Australasia and the wider Asia-Pacific region. The conference has major sub-themes encompassing but not limited to:
- New technologies
- New information from old data
- Local understanding from regional context
- Workflows and methods that reduce cost/turnaround on projects
- Cross disciplinary co-ordination
- Case studies
- Interacting and communicating science to the wider community.
A vital component of the 2019 conference will be the inclusion of dedicated streams for Australian basins, discovery techniques, mineral mapping, and remote sensing applications.
On behalf of the AEGC 2019 Organising Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Perth. Visit the conference web site for the latest information regarding the conference, accommodation, sponsorship and exhibition opportunities.

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists is bringing its 2017 Distinguished Short Course (DISC) programme to Australia.
Traveling worldwide, the SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course (DISC) is an eight hour, one-day short course on a topic of current and wide-spread interest.
The 2017 DISC course covers Fundamentals and Applications of Electromagnetic Geophysics. Local case histories pertaining to problems in resource exploration, including oil and gas, minerals, water, environmental, and geotechnical areas will be used as motivation for investigating fundamentals of electromagnetics. The aim of this course is to equip participants with sufficient fundamental understanding and resources about EM geophysics so that they can decide if an EM technique can help solve their problem, select which type of survey to employ, and set realistic expectations for what information can be gleaned.
A webinar session will also be presented.
All past DISC courses can also be listed to on-line. Click here for more information.
AIG commends SEG on this great initiative.
The Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG) is hosting the second instalment of its very successful Drilling for Geology conference held in 2008. Drilling for Geology II, being held in Brisbane 26-28 July, 2017 will again focus on the collection and analysis of geoscientific information from drilling.
Thirty presentations will cover best practice, case studies, emerging developments and blue sky R&D in the themes of:
- ? Industry overview
- Drilling techniques ?
- Drilling logistics ?
- Sensing and geophysics ?
- Drill hole sampling and logging methods ?
- Making better use of drilling data
A trade exhibition will run in parallel with the technical program. All conference breaks and the welcome function will be held in the exhibition for networking.
Two days of presentations will be followed by a day of professional development workshops.
AIG Victoria branch will hold their annual conference on Friday 13 October 2017 on the smart and successful use of innovative technology and data. The conference will be held at Macedon, a short country drive from Melbourne airport.
This conference provides the opportunity for geoscientists who have made smart discoveries using smart technology to showcase their results. The conference additionally provides the opportunity for innovative technology companies to showcase their smart products.
Topics to be covered include:
- Geological Mapping
- Drill sampling and analysis
- Data mining
- Augmented reality
- Drilling technology
- 3D printing
- Satellite imagery
Speaker registration open | Exhibition booths available | Sponsorship packages available
Call for speakers: Four sessions will be held for 12-16 speakers. Presentations are 20 minutes each plus 5 minutes for questions. No abstracts or papers will be required, instead authors are requested to provide a copy of their presentation for the AIG conference web site. Please include a brief biography when submitting your request to present.
Sponsorship & Exhibition Booths: Packages are available. Exhibition booths are restricted to the first 15 applicants. Booths include a table and 2 chairs. Please nominate when registering if you prefer to bring your own banners or require a 1.8 m x 1.0 m poster board.
