21 - 23 of July 2021 | Perth, Western Australia

Abstract Submission Overview

We regret to advise that due to the outbreak and spread of COVID-19, and the associated travel restrictions emplaced by Australian and international government, Geoconferences’ 6th International Archean Symposium (6ias) will be postponed until 2021.

Geoconferences and the 6ias Organising Committee would like to inform all authors that considering the postponement of the symposium, all abstracts will need to be resubmitted in 2021 should you still wish to attend the symposium. Key dates for the symposium will be decided by the committee in the upcoming weeks, once the global community has a greater handle on the full effects of COVID-19. At this stage, we envisage that the conference will take place on 21 – 23 July 2021, pending confirmation.

If you have any additional queries, please contact our Secretariat, Jocelyn, at info@6ias.org.

On behalf of the 6ias Organising Committee, we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and trust that you will understand that, through this postponement, we are trying to ensure maximum participation to this event.

New abstract submission/re-submission dates will be announced shortly. 

6ias is a unique opportunity to showcase the most significant contributions, discoveries and insights in Archean and Proterozoic geoscience from the last decade. It is the only dedicated scientific forum for those working in Precambrian provinces, either in research, government or the minerals industry. We welcome submissions from a diverse range of topics including, but not limited to, early Earth evolution, Archean and Proterozoic tectonics and metallogeny, the evolution of life and minerals exploration in Precambrian terranes

Abstracts will be reviewed by members of the Program Committee for their scientific validity.

All accepted abstracts will be published electronically in the conference proceedings and in the 6ias abstract volume. After abstract acceptance, you will be asked to confirm copyright assignment. Presenting authors of accepted abstracts are required to register and pay the appropriate registration fee for the conference prior to midnight (AWST) on Sunday 31 May 2021.
