The 70th Annual Meeting of GSA’s Southeastern Section will be held in Auburn, Alabama, USA. This is the
second SEGSA meeting to be held in Auburn, where the foothills of the southernmost Appalachians meet the
Coastal Plain. As the “Loveliest Village of the Plains,” Auburn and the surrounding regions are known
for prominent universities, cultural centers, and natural attractions, with proximity to major cities of
the southeast. The meeting is to be held in the Auburn University Hotel and Dixon Conference Center,
located on the campus of Auburn University. To allow maximum participation and increase the scope of its
scientific content, the symposia, technical sessions, and field trips will offer combinations of
in-person and virtual attendance. The technical program for the 70th SEGSA will be exceptionally broad
and diverse, with topics from planetary geology and the origins of Earth to resilience in the context of
environmental hazards and strategies to mitigate climate change. The meeting will be exceptionally rich
in its emphasis of geoscience education, with a strong emphasis on field instruction and student safety,
and it offers many opportunities for student participation and career mentoring. The 70th SEGSA has a
strong program to encourage contributions in mineralogy, petrology, tectonics, sedimentology and
stratigraphy, geochemistry, hydrogeology, geomorphology, geophysics, paleontology and economic geology.
We invite you to make plans to attend—in person or with a virtual format—as we use the perspectives of
geoscience to understand Earth’s past, present and future.
