The Australian Centre for Geomechanics (ACG), in collaboration with CSIRO Petroleum, The University of Western Australia and The University of Newcastle, looks forward to hosting the First Southern Hemisphere International Rock Mechanics Symposium (SHIRMS) to be held in Perth, Western Australia, 16 - 19 September 2008.
Dear fellow geoscientists,
Since 1878, the International Geological Congress - IGC has every four years been the meeting place for people interested in Earth Science, and in 2008 the Nordic countries will arrange the 33rd International Geological Congress in Oslo, Norway. 2008 will be ‘The Year of Earth Sciences’ including the 33rd IGC, the International Year of Planet Earth (IYPE), and the International Polar Year (IPY). With its strong emphasis on cross-disciplinary symposia, Earth sciences’ societal impact, and on the Arctic, the Congress in Oslo will give you a unique opportunity to discuss high-level science in a broad perspective. Even with the best preparations, however, the success of the meeting depends on your participation. We have a vision of seeing up to 8-10 000 of you in Oslo at the 33rd IGC, the Geoscience World Congress 2008. There are a number of reasons for you to help us make this vision come true:
Since the first IGC in 1878, the Earth Sciences have experienced a period of increased specialisation. Now is the time for a more holistic view on the Earth sciences and the 33rd IGC is the best forum!
We wish you all welcome to Oslo in 2008.
President, 33rd IGC S Anders Solheim
Secretary General, 33rd IGC
Secretary General, 33rd IGC
