Colorado School of Mines

Golden, Colorado, June 16-18, 2014

2 days of field trips and short courses before and after the meeting

***Registration and Abstract Deadline was Friday, May 2***

This Forum will provide an informal and interactive venue for discussing important frontiers, new ideas, and current research in structural geology and tectonics. The Forum will also provide opportunities to discuss effective teaching of structural geology and tectonics, including integrating research with teaching. The three-day Forum will be bracketed by two optional days of workshops and field trips. Although the Forum is aimed at professional geologists, we encourage advanced graduate students to attend.

This is the 3rd Structural Geology and Tectonics Forum. The prior two successful meetings were held at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in May 2010 and and at Williams College in June 2012. The 2012 Forum brought together over 100 structural geologists.
