The Atlantic Universities Geoscience Conference (AUGC) is the oldest geology conference in Canada, with the exception of the Geologic Association of Canada. Every year the AUGC hosts a conference where undergraduate students have the opportunity to present their current work, learn about local geology, meet members of the Atlantic geologic community and enjoy the company of like minded students.
The AUGC also provides students a chance to see the local geology of the host university; each year it is customary to run several day long field trips of the local geogology. Typically, about 150 undergraduate students take part in the activities, which include these one-day field trips, lectures by prominent geologists, and a competition for the best undergraduate research project.
Presently, all universities in Atlantic Canada that have a geology or earth science program are members of of the AUGC. This allows presenters a chance to sharpen their presentation skills in competition with the best of their colleagues in Atlantic Canada. APICS is a major sponsor of the conference, and the Earth Science Committee is one of the key organizers.
Each year an AUGC website is maintained by the university who is hosting the upcoming conference. The purpose of this page is to provide links to the current AUGC website and to maintain all permanent records for the AUGC. Click on the links below to access this information.
