The CAB at the International Geological Congress


The International Geological Congress (IGC), founded in 1876, is the most important global forum in the field of Earth Sciences, co-sponsored by the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS). The IGC is held every four years and this time it will take place its 34th edition in Brisbane (Australia), with the participation of more than 5000 experts in Geosciences.

For the first time, scientists from the Center for Astrobiology (CAB) will participate prominently in the scientific organization of the IGC, both as responsible for some sessions and with the presentation of several scientific communications and as invited speakers "key-note speakers". Jesús Martínez Frías, Head of the Department of Planetology and Habitability of the CAB (mixed center CSIC-INTA) and President of the Commission of Education, Training and Technology Transfer in Geosciences of the IUGS, will preside over the Geosciences Education Session, and co- will preside over sessions of Geoethics and Earth Planets and Habitability. & nbsp;
