Dear YES Members,

You are cordially invited to the 35th International Geological Congress that will take place from 27th August  to 4th September 2016 in Cape Town, South Africa.

Financial support obtained by the 35th IGC through sponsorship or funding mechanisms will be utilised to assist young geoscientists (inclusive of YES participants) and deserving geoscientists from low-income countries to participate in the 35TH IGC as full delegates.
