just a gently reminder that the abstract submission deadline for the 3rd Virtual Geoscience Conference is approaching very fast… have you submitted your abstract yet?

The 3rd Virtual Geoscience Conference (VGC) provides a meeting place for researchers and industry members at the forefront of technological developments and latest applications of geomatics and visualization tools in the geosciences. This year, the bi-anuual conference will be held in Kingston (Canada) and is being organized by an incredible team at Queens University, BGC and the Geological Survey of Canada. Interested?
