The Advances in Earth Sciences Research Conference (AESRC) is a graduate student-run conference that brings graduate and senior undergraduate students together from Ontario universities to share their research and foster collaboration across the various Earth Science disciplines. Participating in this conference allows students to gain constructive feedback on their work, gain exposure to the breadth of Earth Science research that is taking place in Ontario, and interact with sponsors from industry and academia. AESRC is currently hosted each year by one of the five member universities (University of Ottawa, Carleton University, Queen’s University, Western University, and University of Toronto) with the goal to expand as the conference continues to grow. As the newest members, the graduate students from the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Toronto are excited to welcome students for the 18th Annual AESRC from March 29 to 31, 2019. Further details on the conference venue, registration, and abstract submission are available online at www.es.utoronto.ca. If there are any questions about potential sponsorship or participation in this event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We encourage student members of CSEG enrolled in Ontario universities to attend!
