Message from GSA President Joanna Parr:
I expect that, like me, you have been looking forward to our next Australian Earth Science Conference (AESC) in Feb 2021. Perhaps, like me, you were hoping that travel restrictions would have eased enough for us to travel to Hobart to enjoy a week meeting friends and colleagues at the Core-to-Cosmos AESC 2021.
The organising committee have been working hard to deliver the best possible conference for the Earth Science community, but it has become increasingly obvious, given the very real chance of travel restrictions, the viability of a face to face meeting in Hobart is in jeopardy. So, having considered all the potential scenarios, including postponing to 2022, the committee have decided that the AESC 2021 will be a virtual conference that will run 9-12 February in 2021. They are currently testing software platforms, looking at innovative ways of running difference facets of the meeting and working on providing the best possible interactive conference for all the registrants.
It’s obviously very disappointing that we will not all gather in Hobart in February, but I am confident that the Organising Committee will deliver a benchmark virtual experience with a Tasmanian flavour. More information will come out soon.
President, Geological Society of Australia
