Invitation from the Conference Co-chairs

It is with great pleasure that we extend you this invitation to attend the 23rd International Geophysical Conference and Exhibition in Melbourne, Australia, to be held from August 11th to 14th, 2013. The event will be jointly hosted by ASEG and PESA.

The theme for the conference is “The Eureka Moment” – capturing ASEG’s and PESA’s quest for discovery, insight and learning, but also with a sub-contextual nod to the golden riches of Victoria’s past.

This ASEG-PESA hosted conference is a recognised industry forum in which to present and learn about the newest geophysical techniques and practices. All delegates are invited to submit abstracts for posters and presentations in the five concurrent technical streams that we will be running over the three days of the conference. As always, case histories will be well received. We are lining up a number of terrific national and international key-note speakers to kick off the technical sessions. Several workshops and courses are being developed to serve the training needs of members of both host societies.

We are very proud of the venue for the conference and exhibition. The Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) was only recently constructed and will provide a stunning venue on the southern bank of the Yarra River in the heart of Melbourne. The exhibition hall will be located on the same level as, and immediately next to, the technical session meeting rooms, thus fully meshing the exhibition with the conference, and maximising exhibitor- delegate interaction. With more than 100 exhibitor booths, the exhibition hall is the perfect place to get up-to-date on the latest geophysical technologies.

The conference is the largest exploration geophysical conference in the southern hemisphere, attracting geophysicists from minerals and hydrocarbon exploration in equal numbers. Preparations for the conference are advancing at a rapid pace. In particular, tailored sponsorship packages are currently being developed for companies willing to support the conference.

We look forward to seeing you in Melbourne for the 23rd International Geophysical Conference and Exhibition!
