The 1st AIC and general assembly will be held at the University of Sciences and Technology Houari Boumediene, Algeria in February 17-18th, 2016. This initiative aims to promote Geosciences in both North Africa and the Middle East. Hopes are to provide a high level exchange platform where participants will be presenting their current works and future research plans in a large range of Earth Science fields. The AIC-1 is the paramount venue for geoscientists from around the world to come together and share ideas and experiences. A comprehensive program is planned with multiple keynote speakers, parallel technical sessions, poster sessions, and exhibitors. As an added promote to participants, the AIC-1 venue organized a post- conference excursion that allows access to the unique continental Hoggar Shield, the Saharan Atlas and breath taking landscapes. The ArabGU Founding Team and the AIC-1 Organizing Committee would like to invite you to participate and submit your communications. Abstracts in all aspects of Earth sciences in Africa, Arab World and neighboring areas are welcome. Hopefully gathering most of the Arab country geoscience representatives will allow stimulating discussions, an incentive to take the Arab and International Geosciences to the next level. This conference will also witness the creation of the first two sections of the ArabGU: the Planetary Sciences section & the History of Geology section. Your presence and contribution will make it a memorable event. We look forward to welcoming you in the AIC-1.

The conference organizing committee of the 2016 AIC-1 is pleased to announce that the best papers will be published as an Edited Volume with Springer: Geology of the Arab World: an overview” [From the 2nd Circular]
