Event Details



This symposium is the paramount venue for geochemists from around the world to come together and share technology and experiences.  The focus will be on Applied Geochemistry for: Exploration, Environmental Technologies, and Sample/Data Analysis.  A comprehensive program is planned with multiple keynote speakers, parallel technical sessions, one-day short courses, pre-symposium field trips, poster sessions, exhibitors, and social programs (including partner programs).
 
Tucson Arizona is an ideal location to hold the 27th IAGS with great weather in the spring, easy access for visitors, abundant potential for field trips & visitor recreation, plus a world class resort with convention center perfectly suited for the IAGS.  The venue has offered a special room rate to our group for this event of $169 reduced from the standard rate of $215.  Additionally there are a number of "casitas" that provide great space for families or those who wish to share space, but not a room.  Several of these casitas are ideally suited for companies wishing to have evening social/marketing events.
 
The IAGS will consist of strong technical content including: 5 field trips (pre-symposium), 4 one-day (possibly two-day) short courses, and 7 key-note speakers, plus 11 technical sessions for a total of 88 speakers.  In addition there will be space for twenty-five (25) 8x10 booths for exhibitors and up to 100 posters at a time in the morning/afternoon break areas.  There will be plenty of planned social events including: Sunday Ice-Breaker, Tuesday evening Distinguished Lecturer, Wednesday (all day) Social/Field Trips (designed for attendees and accompanying persons), Thursday evening AAG Awards Dinner, and partner events throughout the week.  Time has been set aside for AAG Executive/Council meetings and the AAG Annual Meeting during the IAGS week.
 
The western United States has a rich mining history with many of the geochemical techniques and processes used today being developed and/or proven at mines throughout the region.  From gold and silver in Colorado, Nevada, Idaho, and California to copper in Montana, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona the mineral wealth of this area has powered the growth and industrialization of this nation.  Additionally, there has been production of uranium, coal, natural gas, oil, and rare earths (REE) throughout the region.
