Dear Scientific Colleagues,
The Organising Committee for the 2011 International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) General Assembly, on behalf of the Australian and New Zealand scientific communities, invites researchers world-wide to Melbourne, Australia in 2011, to participate in an exciting, multi-disciplinary conference on cutting edge science, presented by the eight scientific associations of the IUGG.
The conference will be marked by a scientific program of outstanding plenary speakers, a comprehensive program of state of the art symposia organised by each IUGG association, a compelling keynote speakers program, and the highlight of IUGG conferences, an inter-disciplinary, inter-association program of symposia addressing major scientific issues of global and regional significance and concern.
The new Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, completed in late 2009, is the most modern convention centre in the world. The city of Melbourne is one of the most live-able cities in the world that hosts a diverse and dynamic scientific research community.
Australia and New Zealand are fantastic destinations for holidays and tourism, offering exotic touring opportunities. The indigenous Aboriginal culture of Australia and the Maori culture of New Zealand are unique in the world.
We look forward to sharing with you the rich scientific program we are planning for the 2011 IUGG General Assembly in Melbourne as well as the unique and exotic recreational opportunities Australia and New Zealand offer to IUGG 2011 participants and their families.
Professor Ray Cas
Joint Australia and New Zealand Organising Committee,
IUGG 2011 Melbourne
