STEM professionals from all disciplines are invited to take part in the inaugural Australian Geoscience Council Convention (AGCC 2018), which will be held in Adelaide from 14-18 October.
The AGCC 2018 will bring together more than 2,000 professionals to talk about the big changes, developments and opportunities in Australian Geoscience.
Big Issues and Ideas in Geoscience will highlight the role of Geoscience in the future prosperity of the Asia-Pacific, and the part it plays in the life of every person in the region.
Particular areas of interest will be the focus of a series of Summits during the event, including energy security, resource development in Northern Australia, Geoscience education and communication, and the impact of boom-and-bust commodity cycles.
One of the AGCC 2018 Plenary Speakers will be Professor Matthew Huber from the Department of Earth, Planetary and Atmospheric Sciences at Purdue University (Indiana, USA). Professor Huber heads the Climate Dynamics Prediction Laboratory at Purdue University and his research focuses on the Earth’s Climate, spanning the deep geological past, present and future.
Additional sessions before, during and after the Convention will cover a number of professional development workshops, field trips, and much more.
The Australian Geoscience Council is a member of STA, and represents over 8,000 geoscientists through its 8 Member Organisations.
