Format and dates
Technical sessions: The three days of the main Forum (June 16-18) will follow the format of the previous meetings, with each half day devoted to a critical topic addressed with a keynote, several short talks, and poster presentations. The program for the 2012 meeting illustrates the format and topics for the most recent Forum. We will solicit abstracts from participants and build the program from participant submissions.
Field trips and workshops: Optional workshops and field trips will take place on the two days prior to the Forum (June 14 & 15) and on the two days following the Forum (June 19 & 20). As soon as we have the full list of field trips and workshops, we will post them here.
Arrival and departure: All days of the Forum, including optional workshop and field trip days, begin at 8:00 am and end at 5:30 pm. Please plan your travel so that you arrive the evening before the first event that you wish to attend and leave after the last event has concluded.
Logistics and costs
Travel and lodging. Participants or their home institutions must cover lodging plus travel to and from the workshop. We will offer a low-cost option to stay in the dorms at Colorado School of Mines. Alternatively, participants may make their own lodging arrangements at a local hotel. The nearest airport is Denver International Airport. More info on travel and lodging will follow later.
Other workshop costs: These are still being determined, and we will update this page with information as soon as it is available.
Although the Forum is aimed at professional geologists, we encourage advanced graduate students to attend. More info on registration and abstract submission will follow. If you have questions, please contact Yvette Kuiper (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Chuck Kluth (email@example.com)
