Under the subject “Geology and development, challenges of the XXI century”, this event proposes to address ideas related to the integral comprehension of the natural environment to optimize its use within a socio-cultural frame. The geologic themes will include four days of technical presentations and plenary talks, as well as courses and congress field trips (held before, within, and after the congress). All these activities could be combined with different gastronomic and touristic offers such as the amazing Southern Right Whale watching. The 21st Argentinean Geological Congress looks forward to have you enjoying the argentine Patagonia among friends and colleagues.

The Argentine Geological Congress is the most important geological meeting in the national scope that has the following objectives: To promote basic and applied research within the field of Earth Sciences. The Argentine Geological Congresses, to be held under the auspices and responsibility of the Argentine Geological Association, will have the purpose of promoting the development of basic and applied research in the field of Earth Sciences; promoting the discussion and dissemination of original research works related mainly to Argentine Geology; promoting the meeting of Argentine geologists among themselves and with those of other nations, facilitating discussion and the exchange of ideas; and supporting the actions recommended by its Members aimed at advancing and prioritizing the profession in all its fields.

In 1966, the Third Argentine Geological Conference was held in Comodoro Rivadavia. After 54 years, the Congress Venue returns to Chubut, having as a framework the imposing nature of the city of Puerto Madryn and its surroundings, in the middle of the southern right whale watching season.
