Invitation: GeoPRISMS Townhall and Community/Student Forum at AGU

Join us for the GeoPRISMS Townhall Meeting and Community / Student Forum at the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting!

When: AGU Fall Meeting 2018 – Monday December 10 at 6:00 PM

Where: Kimpton Hotel Monaco | 700 F St NW, Washington, DC – Paris Ballroom (few minutes walk from convention center)

The event is open to all with interests in the GeoPRISMS Program and GeoPRISMS (or MARGINS) research. Come hear updates about the GeoPRISMS Program, the latest GeoPRISMS research projects & study areas, and ongoing GeoPRISMS research from student presenters.

  • A short formal session (starting at 6:30PM) will include a welcome and opening remarks from the GeoPRISMS Chair Demian Saffer and updates from NSF Program Directors Jenn Wade and Debbie Smith.
  • Mini-Workshop Conveners Stacia Gordon (University of Nevada-Reno), Alicia Cruz-Uribe (University of Maine) and Laura Wallace (GNS Science, New Zealand, University of Texas Institute for Geophysics) will present reports on both mini-workshops held the Sunday before AGU
  • Lindsay Worthington (University of New Mexico) will provide an update on the Amphibious Array Community Seismic Experiment, including announcement of opportunities.

Student entrants for the GeoPRISMS Prize for Outstanding Student Presentations are invited to display their AGU posters (or poster versions of their AGU talks) and discuss their research with event participants. This will be a great opportunity for students to share their results further and to interact with a wide spectrum of GeoPRISMS scientists.

There will be ample time to mingle and refreshments will be available. Among those present will be Demian Saffer (GeoPRISMS Chair), members of the GeoPRISMS Steering and Oversight Committee, and Program Directors for GeoPRISMS from the National Science Foundation.

We hope to see you there!
