Event Cost: FREE event!

The GESSS-Q is an event that allows honours, masters, and PhD students from all over Queensland to present their work to the wider scientific community, including geoscientists from industry, government, and academia.

The Geological Society of Australia Earth Sciences Student Symposium – Queensland (GESSS-Q) is being held on the 12th of November at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane.

This conference is designed to bring students and young researchers from around Queensland together to present new research, technology, and ideas related to earth science. The event is student organised and designed to provide students with an opportunity to develop their science communications skills to a broad audience, facilitate peer learning, peer feedback, and networking opportunities for students and researchers in Queensland.

This is a free event for all students (Ph.D, Masters, Honours and Undergraduate) and GSA members. Morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea will be provided. Following the presentations, there will be a panel discussion and networking event with refreshments.

The symposium will run over the course of 1 day. There will be four sessions with talks around 10 minutes long, each with 3-5 minutes discussion time. Posters will be displayed all day and the official poster judging session will take place during lunch.

This year, we have two general overarching themes; Analytical and Applied Earth Sciences. We encourage speakers to direct their presentation toward one of these themes.
