During a discussion at the 2002 annual SANW meeting in Davos the idea to organize a Swiss Geoscience Meeting to bring together the national geoscience groups was born. With this meeting we intend to stimulate interdisciplinary communication and provide a platform for lively discussion among colleagues from the widest possible spectrum of geosciences. The Swiss Geoscience Meeting may host the annual meetings of the various national geosciences groups and in this respect will replace the traditional SANW meetings. The organizing committee is glad to announce the first of this new series of national meetings in November 2003. This event entitled: Swiss Geosciences: New Perspectives will be hosted at Basel University. A system of rotating organization and venues is planned for the future. The second Swiss Geoscience Meeting will be held in Lausanne in 2004.
