Theme: Geoscience and Environmental Technology for a Better Future

As we move forward through the modern era, the practice of science and technology is omnipresent. Knowledge of the earth’s systems and processes, together with the application of technology has improved our quality of life through the utilisation and management of the earth’s natural resources such as rocks, minerals, petroleum, natural gas and groundwater. The use of technology in geosciences can generate creative and innovative solutions to address current environmental issues. Practical application through these approaches may create new horizon and opportunities that can be adopted for a better future.

The technical program of NGC2016 consists of oral and poster presentations on all aspects of Geoscience, Environments and Technology related to the theme. Presentations will be delivered by keynote speakers on topics of relevance to the theme and interest to the nation. There will be a one-day Pre-NGC2016 Fieldtrip to bauxite mining areas in Kuantan.
