6th International Archean Symposium

25-27 July 2023 @ Fremantle, Perth, Western Australia

Kaya from Noongar Whadjuk boodja! The 6th International Archean Symposium (6IAS) represents the premier international scientific gathering for geoscientists interested in the Early Earth. The program reflects a decade’s worth of advances in our understanding of how the Early Earth evolved and aims to develop future directions for Precambrian geoscience for the decade to come. The symposium continues the series of highly successful IAS meetings presented every decade by Geoconferences (WA). We invite academic, government and industry geoscientists involved in Precambrian geoscience to attend the 6th International Archean Symposium, which will be held from 25 - 27 July 2023 at The Esplanade Hotel in Fremantle (Walyalup), Perth, Australia.

The 6th International Archean Symposium aims to highlight some of the most significant contributions and greatest advances in research into Precambrian geoscience from the last ten years.

The 6ias Organising Committee has announced a diverse three-day technical program including high-level plenary sessions, technical talks and poster sessions, reflecting the depth and breadth of current geoscientific knowledge. More than 400 researchers, industry practitioners and government geoscientists from around the world are expected at this event. Pre- and post-conference field trips explore some of Australia’s most impressive Precambrian geological sites in the Pilbara and Yilgarn Cratons.

We are proud to announce the 6ias Keynote and Invited Speakers, who will present on the evolution and advancement of knowledge in Archean and Proterozoic geoscience – to read all about them, please click here.
