2017 GSA Annual Meeting

Seattle, Washington, USA

22–25 October

Save the Dates!

Call For Field Trip, Short Course, and Technical Session Proposals

Thank you to all the 2016 GSA Denver Annual Meeting attendees. We hope you enjoyed the geology, networking, and libations. It’s time to plan for our 2017 Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington, USA. GSA is excited to head back to the Northwest. Our 2009 meeting in Portland, Oregon, USA, attracted nearly 6,500 attendees from over 50 countries so our 2017 meeting will be international, well attended, and full of excitement! A highlight will be the Seattle-area geology: Glaciation, deposition, tectonics, crustal deformation, unconformities, erosion, bedrock structures, and drumlins. We challenge you to propose a field trip, short course, and/or a technical session that will teach your colleagues and promote discussion about the incredible regional geology.

EXCHANGE geology by chairing or organizing a technical session.
Technical Session deadline: 1 Feb. 2017
Proposals are being taken for both Pardee Keynote and Topical Sessions.

SHARE the geology as an instructor through a Short Course.
Short Course proposal deadline: 1 Feb. 2017
Courses run the Friday and Saturday before the Annual Meeting and are typically a half day to two full days.
