Tēnā tātou katoa,

We welcome you all to University of Otago Ōtākou Whakaihu Waka in beautiful Ōtepoti Dunedin for the 2024 Geoscience Society of New Zealand conference.

The conference will run from 25-28th November with oral and poster sessions, pre-conference workshops, post/pre conference field trips, and plenary sessions held at the Ōtākou Whakaihu Waka University of Otago campus. Social functions include an icebreaker event, early career social function, museum scavenger hunt, and gala dinner . We are also excited that the second ever EarthFest will be held in conjunction with this conference.

With our ‘Mountains to Sea’ conference theme, we look forward to a wide range of abstract submissions that celebrate the diversity of the geosciences and of the landscapes in Aotearoa New Zealand. 

On behalf of the wonderful conference local organising committee, we look forward to seeing you all in Ōtepoti Dunedin in November.
