The Geological Society of America (GSA) 2017 meeting will convene 22-25 October 2017 in Seattle, Washington.
The Pacific Northwest provides great opportunities to experience the richness, diversity, and deep scientific understanding of the geosciences in their full splendor first-hand through 24 field trips, participating in our 25 short courses, and particularly submitting and placing your abstract(s) into one or more of our near-record 257 Topical Sessions nested within 31 geoscience disciplines.
There will be something for everyone, from hypothesis-driven basic and applied research to geoscience education, information, and communication to the public policy implications of our science. Especially important this year is how geoscience research and communication must respond to, adjust, and perhaps pursue new opportunities in a world and nation demanding a greater scientific understanding of what we do, why we do it, and the long-term impacts and implications of our work.
We intend to fill our 257 Topical Sessions, plus maintain the flexibility of creating Discipline Sessions, as well as offer numerous poster sessions, with many directly affiliated with oral sessions. We will also be offering six Pardee Keynote Sessions —diversity and the changing face of the geosciences, landscapes in the Anthropocene, the Chicxulub Impact Crater, Mesozoic-Cenozoic terranes along North America’s Pacific margin, Earth anatomy revealed through geologic mapping, and a Pardee poster session on “speed dating” (featuring 10–12 geochronologists to personally interact with meeting attendees).

Abstract deadline is 1 August 2017.
Registration deadline is 18 September 2017.
