35th International Geological Congress (IGC)

Cape Town, South Africa

One of the largest international geological congresses, and presented by a different country every fourth year. In 2016, it is the turn of South Africa to present this exciting event - on behalf of the African continent. The event will be held in the acclaimed Cape Town International Convention Centre in Cape Town, the Mother City of South Africa. Cape Town boasts Table Mountain, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, as its backdrop.

The 35th IGC will highlight the region’s geoscientific superlatives. The world-famous geology, geoheritage, and the geological and the scenic wonders of South and southern Africa will be comprehensively discussed. Ample opportunity for discussion and debate are provided for by the planned scientific symposia during a diverse scientific programme of oral and poster presentations, workshops, short courses and business meetings. With the cooperation of several other African countries, the aim of the large number of pre- and post-congress excursions and day trips is to allow visitors and delegates their very own experience of the geological superlatives of Africa and southern African.
