In July 2010, an outstanding selection of national and international speakers, industry leaders, and key decision makers will meet in Canberra in the scenic Eastern Highlands, just a few hours drive from Australia's major ski fields.

Canberra is not only the nation's capital and heart of policy development, but it is also home of two of Australia's premier geoscience organisations Geoscience Australia and the Australian National University's Research School of Earth Sciences (birthplace of the famous SHRIMP mass spectrometer that has revolutionised Earth Science research over the past two decades).

AESC 2010 offers all geoscientists a unique opportunity for professional development and a chance to hear first hand, the latest developments in geosciences.

Be part of this significant geosciences convention!
