Newsbreaker: Australian Earth Science Convention 2006



Early Bird registration extended to 31 March 2006: Members of GSA and  
ASEG along with Speakers can register at this discounted rate until  
31 March.

Program Update:

Special Symposium: Environmental and geological hazards and risks to  
Australasia: multi-disciplinary research for an environmentally  
sustainable Australia and neighbouring countries

volcanoes • tsunami • climate change and impacts • water resources  
and salinity • environmental hazards • earthquakes • asteroids and  
space weather

Australia and neighbouring countries have complex natural  
environments and resources that have evolved over millions of years.  
These, and the populations that depend on them, are vulnerable to  
natural geological hazards, and to global environmental changes  
including accelerating human impacts.

This symposium will highlight recent advances in characterising and  
tackling these issues, and will identify the challenges and  
opportunities that lie ahead if we are to minimise these risks and  
achieve an Environmentally Sustainable Australia and Region. The  
Symposium aims to examine the gaps in our knowledge of these complex  
natural systems, discuss the limitations in our ability to make  
accurate risk predictions, and explore the relationships between  
science assessments and policy.

A special publication of peer-reviewed papers based on invited and  
contributed papers will be produced from the Symposium, and a book  
targeted to inform the broader community will be produced from  
invited contributions.

FIELD TRIPS: Evidence for climate change, neotectonics and volcanic  
hazards in SE Australia • Environmental geoscience issues including  
salinity and hydrology issues in the Murray-Darling Basin.

industry in action sessions

This program is for people and companies involved in the search for  
and development of mineral and energy resources. Major themes will  
provide a framework for presentations encompassing exploration,  
project funding, investment opportunities, social & financial impacts  
and new discoveries. Seminars and poster displays will provide a  
networking focus for miners, explorers and resource analysts a source  
of information for investors, and a showcase for explorers, miners  
and investors, big and small.

SESSIONS: Early morning sessions: Major Miners • Late morning  
sessions: Explorers, Miners & Energy Producers • Early afternoon  
sessions: Explorers, Miners & Energy Producers • Late afternoon  
sessions: Investing & Funding
