36th International Geological Congress

Monday, 16 – Saturday, 21 August 2021

Given the current status of the Covid-10 pandemic, it appears unlikely that the 36th IGC can be held as rescheduled to November 2020.  Accordingly, the Local Organizing Committee requested and the IGC Committee (IGCC) approved revised dates of 16-21 August 2021.  Scheduling was constrained by the limited availability of the venue site in New Delhi in 2021.  The IUGS Executive Committee and its constituent groups will work hard to ensure the success of the rescheduled Congress.


Under consideration by the IUGS Executive Committee is the call for an extraordinary session of the IUGS-IGC Council, possibly to be held in Paris, France in early November for the purpose of completing essential business, such as the election of a new executive committee.  If held, the agenda and number of participants will be limited with most delegates participating via teleconferencing.  Inquiries are just being made.  No announcement will be made until facilities, location, and dates are confirmed and approved by the EC.
