An iCRAG contingent of Dr Steve Hollis, Dr Roisin Kyne, Dr Thomas Rielger, Dr Lingli Zhou and Oakley Turner attended and presented within the shadow of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa, at the 35th International Geological Congress earlier this mongh. Derived from the individual iCRAG projects, both oral presentations and posters demonstrated the progression of the research, with Roisin and Steve also presenting previous research. Former and current investigators within the field engaged in lively debate throughout the conference, debate which was aided to by the dramatic backdrop and local food and drink delights.

The conference itself covered all aspects of geoscience including, away from the research aspect, socio-economic, ethics and public engagement conversations.

The next conference is to be held in Delhi, India in 2020.
