6th International Archean Symposium
2022 @ Perth, Western Australia
The 6th International Archean Symposium (6IAS) represents the premier international scientific gathering for geoscientists interested in the Early Earth. The program will reflect 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 2022 at The University of Western Australia in Perth, Australia.
The 6IAS Organising Committee is currently developing an exciting program of presentations, field excursions and workshops to reflect a decade’s worth of advances in our understanding of the early Earth.
Industry, academic and government geoscientists with an interest in the Archean will be welcomed to our beautiful city to not only enjoy the scientific and social program, but also to visit classic geological sites and mineral deposits in Western Australia.
