On behalf of the Organising Committee, we are pleased to invite you to take part in the Oxford Geoheritage Virtual Conference, to be hosted online by the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. The meeting will take place from 25-28 May 2020.
This conference is open to all who are interested in geoheritage, including scientists, students, professionals, policy-makers, and managers. We welcome contributions from all fields of geoheritage including geoconservation, management, classification, geodiversity, legislation, geoparks, geotourism, geoheritage and cultural heritage, and interpretation. Geoheritage is an inherently interdisciplinary field: we also encourage those from affiliated fields who have something to contribute to attend and submit an abstract.
The Organising Committee have rapidly set up OxGVC in response to the cancellation of a number of meetings in 2020 due to COVID-19. Recognising the often dispersed nature of workers within geoheritage, and therefore the vital role meetings play, we hope OxGVC can help to bring together the geoheritage community, wherever you may be, at this difficult time.
