Abstract (in english)
   The Austrian Geological Survey was founded only 4 years after the British and Irish Surveys and thus is the third oldest in the world. Many foreign geologists, including Czechs, worked in this Survey, during the existence of the Austrian and later Austro-Hungarian Empire and, vice versa, many Austrians contributed to the knowledge of geological composition of Bohemian, Moravian and Silesian territories. the festivities, commemorating this anniversary, were organized in Vienna, in the Palais Rasumofsky, in November 1999. The delegation of Czech geologists attended this meeting and three of them were assigned Members - correspondents of the Austrian Geological Survey. The whole-day festivities were subdivided nto three parts: Official session in the morning block of lecture in the afternoon and dinner party in the evening.
   Six lectures, presented in German language, dealt with the future of sedimentology, with phanerozoic climatic cycles, with the origin of glaciation in the Quaternary, with activities of the UNESCO in Earth's sciences and with the relation between the broad public and popularization of the Earth sciences. The festivities were perfectly organized which was deeply acknowledged by all the participants. The presence of the Minister of research and transport as well as many Austrian and foreign guests contributed to the importance of this scientiphic and social convention. On the occassion of the Anniversary the Festive volume appeared, as special volume of "Abhandlungen", called "Geology without frontiers". The geologists of neighbourhood countries contributed to this volume with their addresses and analyses of historical geological cooperation with Austrian Geological Survey.
   Austrian Post also issued a commemorative stamp with the Rasumofsky palais in the background and three fossils in the foreground
