Purpose and ethos of conference

This year the Specialist Group in Tectonics and Structural Geology is joining forces with the Specialist Group in Solid Earth Geophysics to bring you 'Convergence on the Coast'. We aim to bring together the research community in structural geology, tectonics and solid earth geophysics within Australia and internationally to discuss the latest research and developments in these fields. The primary focus of this technical conference is to enable collaboration and exchange of ideas between the geoscience research, government and industry communities. 

We plan to maintain the relaxed, informal atmosphere of previous SGTSG conferences, and strongly encourage student attendance and presentations. The conference includes pre-, mid-, and post-conference field trips to see some spectacular local geology, as well as other networking events including the biennial SGTSG dinner and awards night.


We hope that the conference will provide a nurturing networking experience for all attendees and look forward to seeing you in beautiful Port Lincoln in November 2019.
