Dear Colleagues,

I want to draw your attention to the 6th International Archean Symposium ( that will be held on July 14 to 16, 2020 in Perth,
Australia, along with pre- and post field trips ( to see the Archean cratons in WA.

Please check out the information below for the program and invited speakers
if you are interested; also note the abstract submission deadline is Feb

The 6th International Archean Symposium aims to highlight some of the most
significant contributions and greatest advances in research into
Precambrian geoscience from the last ten years. The 6IAS Organising
Committee has announced a diverse three-day technical program including
high-level plenary sessions, panel discussion and poster sessions,
reflecting the depth and breadth of current geoscientific knowledge. Pre-
and post-conference field trips explore some of Australia’s most impressive
