Description and Details:
The 27th IUGG General Assembly will be held July 8-18, 2019 at the Palais des Congrès in Montréal, Québec, Canada. This is a special opportunity for participants from Canada and from around the world to come together and share their science and culture. 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of IUGG; we will look back on the accomplishments of the previous century of Earth and space science research, and forward to the next century of scientific advancement. Join us for a host of scientific activities, including special public lectures, keynote Union lectures and a wide variety of themed sessions.
During your stay, you will have the opportunity to explore the city of Montréal, widely renowned across North America and around the world for its vibrant cultural, social and culinary scene. July is a particularly good time to profit from warm weather, outdoor dining and the many festivals taking place across the city.
