Date: Thursday, January 11, 2018 to Friday, January 12, 2018
On January 11th-12th, 2018 the inaugural Irish Geosciences Early Career Symposium 2018 (iGEO2018) will take place.
This 2 day event at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) aims to provide early career geoscientists with an opportunity to collaborate and benefit from the multidisciplinary nature of research across Ireland. iGEO2018 will enable early career geoscientists (ECGs) to exchange knowledge on common methodologies and their research with fellow ECGs, industry members and policy makers.
What makes iGEO2018 different to other conferences?
iGEO2018 is the first of its kind – an Irish symposium organised by, and designed for, early-career geoscientists. The symposium is a direct result of feedback from ECG’s which has led to an interactive and skill based meeting. Some of the major difference between iGEO2018 and other conferences include:
ECGs will participate in discussions on important cross-disciplinary topics instead of giving traditional talks.
Keynote speakers will all address “The Future of Geoscience” by presenting their perspectives followed by an open panel discussion. See keynote profiles below.
There will be a full day of workshops dedicated to ECG development.
