SGTSG and SGSEG meeting `Convergence at the Coast`

18 November, 2019 - 22 November, 2019

Registration is now open for the 2019 Biennial meeting of the SGTSG (Specialist Group in Tectonics ans Structural Geology) and SGSEG (Specialist Group in Solid Earth Geophysics), themed `Convergence at the Coast`. This is also the first call for abstracts. 

The conference runs from the 18th to the 22nd of November 2019 and is located in the stunning seafood capital of Australia Port Lincoln, South Australia. More info: http://www.sgtsg.org
There are a number of planned field trips, workshops and social events associated with the conference. 
•	Pre-conference Field Trip: Lithospheric structures, orogenic fronts and mineral systems: a traverse through the south-eastern Gawler Craton. Wed 13th - Sun 17th November 2019
•	Mid-conference field trip: One day field trip on Wednesday 20th November, visiting the spectacular local coastal outcrops of the Southern Gawler Craton
•	Post-conference Field Trip: Tectonics, magmatism and crustal growth in the southern Gawler Craton. Sat 23rd – Wed 27th November 2019 
•	Free Loop 3D modelling workshop: Loop is a new platform that will enable field geologists, researchers from academia and government organisations, explorers, resource modellers & managers to better define their 3D geological environment as well as assessing the requirement for optimised additional data/knowledge acquisition. The platform will be Open Source, scalable and applicable to problems from the mine-scale to the plate-scale, in data-rich and poor environment. It will serve to solve problems related to urban geology, basins resources exploration and exploitation as well as minerals and scientific exploration in poly-deformed metamorphosed terranes.
•	Conference dinner and awards night: Wednesday 20th of November at the stunning Line and Label Restaurant, featuring local beer and wines as well as a selection of canapés and a seafood paella, cooked and served by their award winning chefs and featuring all local produce.

•	Observational geophysics. Keynote: Assoc. Professor Meghan Miller. RSES Australian National University
•	Geodynamics and thermodynamics. Keynote: TBA
•	Domes, basins and dynamic topography. Keynote: Dr Mark Hoggard, Harvard University.
•	The Australia-Antarctic connection. Keynote: Dr Naomi Tucker. University of Western Australia
