26 - 30 June 2016 - Adelaide Convention Centre

The Geological Society of Australia invites you to participate in the Australian Earth Sciences Convention 2016 in the city of Adelaide.

The AESC 2016 will showcase the latest geoscience research, provide opportunities for professional development and the space to connect and collaborate with your peers.

Adelaide is a vibrant coastal city surrounded by interesting geology on the door-step. A city that is easy to get to and easy to get around. Adelaide is the city that offers world class food and wine at easy to digest prices.

In the coming months we will be advising our Themes and Symposia, Outreach activities and announcing the full committee.
