AGCC 2018 focused on the Asia Pacific region and was supported by all eight Member Organisations of the Australian Geoscience Council.

Big Issues and Ideas in Geoscience was designed to highlight the fundamental role that Geoscience has as a major field of science throughout the Asia-Pacific region – one that has a part to play in the life of everyone.

The convention covered all aspects of Geoscience, with technical themes covering theoretical and applied Geoscience, mineral and energy resources, environmental and societal science, Geoscience education and communication, and emerging technologies.
