Dear all,

Apologies for any cross-postings of this message.

Please see the below newsletter from the 3rd Virtual Geoscience 
Conference committee. Abstract submission extended until *30th March*. 
The last (2016) conference was a great opportunity for multidisciplinary 
discussions at the boundary between geomatics, geoscience and related 
fields, so we are looking forward to an exciting follow-up in Canada in 
August. Hope to see many of you there.

Best regards,


*Immerse yourself in Virtual Geoscience at VGC 2018 – There is still 
time to submit abstracts!*

The 3rd Virtual Geoscience Conference will be held in the beautiful 
Limestone City, Kingston, Canada, August 22-24, 2018. This is the 
premier conference for researchers, government, and industry members 
conducting innovative research in close range remote sensing and 
computer visualization applied to the geosciences. This year’s meeting 
focus is on the theme of immersive geoscience and novel developments in 
virtual and augmented reality. The broad focus of the conference series 
allows geoscientists from a variety of subdisciplines to share 
experience with the latest tools, software, and, technological innovations.

Abstract submission for the conference has been extended to *March 30, 
2018*. Submission must be made using the conference submission page. The 
organizing committee is looking forward to reading your latest 
virtual-geoscience-themed abstracts.
