International Kimberlite Conferences Advisory Committee

International Kimberlite Conferences are held under the auspices of the International Kimberlite Conferences Advisory Committee (IKCAC). This committee consists of internationally-recognised academic and industrial scientists who are active in research concerned with diamonds, diamond deposits, diamond-bearing rocks, and the character of the upper mantle. The function of the IKCAC is to recommend, and choose, suitable locations for IKCs, as well as to provide guidance and assistance to the local organisers of IKCs. Many members of IKCAC have organised previous IKCs. The IKCAC assumes no financial responsibility for any particular IKC, as each conference is considered to be a stand-alone event. Local organisers are responsible for all aspects of the conference. Each conference is expected to provide funds to start up subsequent conferences and in particular to sponsor the participation of young scientists.
