Axford & Distinguished Lectures
Hosted annually, these are honorary lectures by distinguished scientists who have produced work of outstanding quality in geosciences including planetary and solar system science.

The “Axford Lectures” are named in honour of Sir/Professor Ian W. Axford. The plenary talks are held on the opening day of the society’s annual general meeting.

Section Business Meeting, Distinguished Lectures & Poster Presentations
AOGS has eight sections and each hosts its own Distinguished Lectures in the area that the section represents.

Each AOGS Section has its own elected President and section secretaries. This is where members gather to touch base on society and section issues. Section Business Meetings are usually held during meal breaks (lunch or dinner) and followed by the Distinguished Lectures.

The Section’s Poster Presentations (includes Student Poster Competition) are also held on the same day usually from 16:00 to 18:00.
