Penrose Conferences

Proposals Encouraged


The Penrose Conferences, named in honor of R.A.F. Penrose, Jr., a benefactor of the Geological Society of America, were established in 1969 by the Society as a further step in its service to the science of geology. The conferences provide the opportunity for exchange of current information and exciting ideas pertaining to the science of geology and related fields. They are intended to stimulate and enhance individual and collaborative research and to accelerate the advance of the science by the interactions and development of new ideas.

Penrose Conference Guidelines (PDF format - 97KB - proposal form included)

IMPORTANT: Read the guidelines carefully. Please address each section of the guidelines in preparing your proposal and e-mail it to Becky Sundeen, GSA Meetings, .
