Geoscience Society of New Zealand Annual Conference 2020


Tēnā tātou katoa, 

We invite you to the Geoscience Society of New Zealand annual conference in Christchurch, 22-25 November 2020.   

We are committed to running the conference as normally as possible within any remaining restrictions.  The conference will be held on campus at the University of Canterbury and will include oral and poster sessions, an evening public lecture or panel discussion, and field trips.   

Online presentations will be possible for presenters overseas, and in case of heightened restrictions at the time of the conference, we will be able to switch to a virtual format. 

We will also be organising the usual conference dinner, icebreaker, and numerous lunchtime breakout sessions, meetings, and workshops.  This will be an opportunity to meet with people, network, and will be a welcome chance to interact face to face.   

We look forward to seeing you in Christchurch. 

Welcome all.

Kari Bassett, Conference Convenor
James Scott, President, Geoscience Society of New Zealand
