13th International Conference on Paleoceanography (ICP13)

02.09 - 06.09.2019  
Sydney, Australia

The 13th International Conference on Paleoceanography will be held in Sydney, Australia, from 2–6 September 2019.


The conference will be hosted at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). UNSW is located close to one of the most iconic beaches in Australia and a short bus ride away from Sydney's central business district.


Following the traditional ICP format, the conference will be organised around invited plenary oral presentations as well as large and vibrant poster sessions. Networking will be at the centre of the ICP, with numerous social events including the Paleomusicology concert and conference dinner.

Field trips

A range of exiting pre- and post-conference field trips will be organised in New South Wales, New Zealand and potentially the Great Barrier Reef. For those with time for exploring, Sydney is the gateway to iconic travel locations including the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru and Kakadu National Park.
