The joint meeting of GSA’s Southeastern and Northeastern Sections will be held in Reston, Virginia, USA.
Reston is a modern, planned community located in northern Virginia. The numerous historic and cultural
attractions of Washington, D.C., are just a short distance away and ready to be explored. A mix of bistros,
restaurants, and shopping on an extensive pedestrian mall are just out the door of the Hyatt Regency Reston,
the conference venue. Situated at the Fall Zone and the transition from the southern to the central and
northern Appalachians, Reston provides a unique vantage point to examine all aspects of eastern geology. We
have developed a robust and diverse technical program that links together the geology of the southeastern
and northeastern U.S., a program that ranges from the crust to mantle, data to policy, mountains to coastal
processes, and paleontology to energy. We invite you to join us for a field trip across D.C. or the
Appalachian orogen, a workshop on applied micropaleontology or making geologic videos, and a broad scope of
technical sessions and symposia that will help us keep a keen eye on eastern geology.
Hotel registration deadline: 26 February, 5 p.m. EST
