South Africa will be hosting the 35th World Cup of Geosciences in 2016, the Prestigious International Geological Congress (IGC) which is held every 4 years and is undoubtedly the most important activity of the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS).

The event will showcase the region’s geoscientific superlatives; world-famous geology and geoheritage together with its geological and scenic wonders. All will be discussed during the scientific debate provided for in an extremely diverse scientific programme of oral and poster presentations, workshops, short courses and business meetings.

The Council for Geoscience, together with the Geological Society of South Africa and other collaborators from academia and industry, currently lead the preparations for the 35th IGC in South Africa. The objectives of the IGC are as follows:

  • Contribute, in collaboration with and under sponsorship of the IUGS, to the advancement of fundamental and applied research in the geological sciences.
  • Provide a general assembly of geoscientists spanning a wide range of geoscience disciplines where ideas and information can be freely exchanged.
  • Emphasise the geological specialities or challenges of the host country or region.
  • Provide the opportunity, by way of geological excursions, to examine geological problems and features in the field.
