First circular - Saying goodbye to a 3D Earth - - 3-7 August 2015

  1. 1. ORGANISING AND SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE Klaus Gessner, GSWA; Mark Jessell, UWA; Mike Dentith, UWA; Robert Hough, CSIRO; Mark Lindsay, UWA; and Florian Wellmann, RWTH Aachen. BACKGROUND Fundamental questions remain as to how to integrate geophysical and geological datasets with prior knowledge into testable, robust predictions of the 3D world beneath our feet. Although commercial systems provide adequate solutions for some specific scenarios, the ability to produce testable, reproducible models for which model uncertainties are well contrained by all the geological and geophysical observations remain a goal, not a reality. In this conference a strong emphasis will be placed on discussing future methods for characterising, visualising and reducing model uncertainty, as this is a particular weakness of current methodologies, and a necessary step in providing predictions with error estimates, a fundamental requirement of all scientific endeavour. The invited speakers are drawn from academia, geological surveys and the energy and minerals industry, as all three groups have been instrumental in developing the existing systems, and are pushing the scientific frontiers of this discipline. This conference will bring together geophysicists and geologists working at different scales, using customised and commercial technologies and workflows, and working in different tectonic settings, to stimulate discussions between groups that do not often interact. FORMAT OF CONFERENCE The conference will consist of invited and open presentations over four days with morning and evening sessions, with each afternoon free for discussion, in the delightful surrounds of the Margaret River wine district of Western Australia. On the Wednesday, we will also have a full day of hands-on access to the latest commercial and academic 3D modelling and inversion software. We have chosen invited speakers that have different visions of how best to integrate the geological and geophysical observation in 3D, so that the conference will be a real opportunity to bring together opposing views that will lead to new ideas. The programmed free discussion time allows these ideas to develop within the time-frame of the conference, and will lead to new international collaborations between the participants.

  2. 2. TALK AND POSTER FORMATS We invite the 3D modelling community for submit talks for this conference, with the emphasis on longer more detailed talks as if befitting the technical nature of the audience. Poster submissions are also encouraged.
