Closing remarks

Report of the Organizer

Schmidt-Effing, R.


The 9th Geoscientific Latin America Convention was held in Marburg from Nov. 21 through Nov. 23, 1984, a date that has become traditional during the years. Thanks to the support of Prof. Dr. R. Emmermann, the romantic castle of Rauischholzhausen, administrated by the University of Gießen, served as our convention facility. It is located only 12 km from Marburg, surrounded by a scenic park. A few weeks before the scheduled date of the meeting it became obvious, that we would have to cope with an unexpectedly high number of participants. A little later we had 230 definite applications, a figure that rose to almost 300 during the convention.
