Thompson Field Forums

Call for proposals

Have a great idea for a Penrose Conference that would be much more effective in a field setting? A field trip that captures the essence of new, exciting discoveries or a controversial topic?

Submit a proposal for a Thompson Field Forum!

Thompson Field Forums are designed to capture the essence of exciting discoveries or controversial topics via forays into the field for on the spot discussions of a particular geologic feature or area. This is both an opportunity to get out into the field and to bring together experts on the topic at hand to exchange current knowledge, ideas, and theories. Recent Field Forum locations include Samos, Greece; Northern Owens Valley and the Volcanic Tableland, California, USA; and the Canadian Shield.

Thompson Field Forums provide an opportunity for exchange of current knowledge and exciting ideas well expressed by the geology of a specific area.
