The Australian Geoscience Council is developing the AGC Convention 2018 (AGCC 2018), to be held in Adelaide during Earth Science Week.

The purpose is to promote Geoscience as a major and essential field of Science in Australia. Geoscience plays a fundamental part in every Australian’s life; it constitutes our immediate environment, and provides many of the materials we use everyday.

The proposed Technical Sessions are:

  1. Understanding the Earth
  2. Life on Earth – origins and diversity
  3. Resources – discovery, development, use and sustainability
  4. Applied Geoscience in the 21st Century – innovation, technology and the future
  5. Beyond the Rocks – Geoscience in our society: current application and future trends

We expect that Technical Session 5 will include sessions engaging with the broader community interested in Geoscience including:

  • Geoscience and education
  • Geoscience in economics and finance
  • Geoscience advocacy, professionalism and ethics
  • Geoscience solutions – understanding, prediction and adaptation

Running across these Technical Sessions we plan to have a number of half-day Thematic Sessions. The overall plan is to engage with as many presenters, speakers and attendees as possible. To do this we have planned an innovative approach with extensive use of electronic resources and poster presentations.
