The conference will provide a comprehensive program of specialist symposia in these fields, as well as many interdisciplinary symposia relevant to the dynamics of the Earth and the major environmental problems confronting the planet Earth, mankind and Earth’s complex ecosystem.

In addition to scientific sessions, the conference will feature a number of special events, including a choice of eight fieldtrips and workshops to geologically interesting sites in Australia and New Zealand.

The convention center is located on the Yarra River in central Melbourne.
