Format and dates–General Schedule
Technical sessions: The forum will combine an all day field trip, several workshops, and half day plenary sessions devoted to a critical topic addressed with a keynote, several short talks, and poster presentations. We will post a detailed program as the Forum approaches. The main Forum program will be built around abstracts solicited from participants.
Field trips and workshops: Optional workshops and a field trips will take during the workshop. If you wish to participate in the field trip or a workshop, you must pre-register when you register for the Forum.
Arrival and departure: All days of the Forum, including 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.
Registration and abstract deadlines
Although the Forum is aimed at professional geologists, we encourage advanced graduate students to attend.
Registration is CLOSED
If you have questions, please contact Ramon Arrowsmith (email@example.com).
