Call for proposals

The Geological Association of Canada (GAC), the Mineralogical Association of Canada (MAC) and the Canadian National Chapter of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH-CNC) are currently preparing the GAC-MAC-IAH/CNC 2019 conference, and invite you to mark these dates in your agenda: 12-15 May 2019. This conference will be held in historic Quebec City, a UNESCO World-Heritage site. Participants will have the opportunity to visit and discover the warmth and charms of this beautiful city and to explore its many attractive nearby natural sites.

Under the theme “Where geosciences converge”, the organizing committee wishes to promote collaboration and stimulating discussion among geologists, mineralogists and petrologists, hydrogeologists, geophysicists and geochemists. The conference will highlight the following themes:

  • Geosystems and hydrogeosystems
  • Resources, energy and environment
  • Data science for geosciences
  • Geosciences and society

We kindly invite you to submit session proposals that are related to these themes or that belong to more general themes in geosciences, which you would be willing to organize and chair. You will find on the conference website a brief description of each of these four themes (http://gacmac-quebec2019.ca/en/themes/)

We also encourage you to submit ideas for field trips and short courses that you would like to organize. We are especially looking for field trip proposals related to a specific session.

We need to receive your proposals by May 1st, 2018 (extended until June 15th), to begin planning the technical program which will be posted on the conference website and in the first flyer. http://gacmac-quebec2019.ca/proposition/

See you in Quebec City!
