Abstracts Deadline: 29 July 2014
As preparations for GSA’s 2014 Annual Meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, go into full swing, we invite your participation—whether as a presenter, exhibitor, or just as an attendee taking in the full spectrum of geoscience research and the amazing surroundings of Vancouver, we don’t think you will be disappointed.
Over the next several months, we will be providing you with vital information for attending the meeting in Canada. Our June GSA Today issue will have information on registration, housing, and the many activities, courses, and field trips you will be able to participate in during the conference. We will also be bringing you information on the city of Vancouver and things you should look to do while there. But we also invite you to look at our meeting website throughout the next few months to plan your trip (and perhaps an extended stay after GSA), as well as to interact with attendees on our Connected Community. For this issue of GSA Today, we have pulled together some travel details for you to review, including essential information and actions to take—sooner rather than later—in order to gain entry into Canada.
We look forward to welcoming you to Vancouver this October for another great meeting!
