Ussher Society Annual Conference 2019

Redcliffe Hotel


The 58th Annual Conference of the Ussher Society will be held at the Redcliffe Hotel, Paignton from 2nd to 5th January 2019.  This is a 3-day conference for geologists, earth and environmental scientists working in the geology and geoscience of South-West England and related areas.  The conference follows a well-established and successful format with two days of illustrated oral and poster presentations (Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd), including the annual Scott Simpson Lecture, and a local field excursion in Torbay (Saturday 4th).

Attendees are encouraged to give early consideration to contributions in the form of presentations and posters, and papers for publication in the journal, and to note the dates in diaries. 

The Conference Venue is the Redcliffe Hotel at Paignton, which provides conference meals and refreshments, offers bed and breakfast at attractive rates, and is situated on the seafront overlooking Preston Sands.

More details to follow in the coming months.
