Welcome to Halifax for the 2022 GAC-MAC-IAH-CNC-CSPG Joint Meeting
Join us in Halifax from May 15 – 18, 2022 for the Annual Meeting of the Geological Association of Canada (GAC), Mineralogical Association of Canada (MAC), the International Association of Hydrogeologists – Canadian National Committee (IAH-CNC), and the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists (CSPG). This meeting coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Atlantic Geoscience Society, the conference host organization. The conference promises a diverse program including symposia and special sessions, field trips, and short courses related to a wide variety of geoscience disciplines in a hybrid format with in-person and virtual components.
Call for Sessions
The overall theme for Halifax 2022 is “Riding the waves of change – Surfer sur la vague du changement”, and certainly COVID-19 has made that theme even more appropriate than we anticipated!
Call for Program Proposals
The conference will consist mainly of oral and poster contributions, arranged in thematic special sessions and symposia as well as in general topical sessions. The schedule will be organized to promote discussion among meeting participants. A variety of short courses and field trips are planned for both before and after the conference. At this time we are planning for an “in-person” conference with the possibility for live-streaming options for some presenters and/or sessions.
The call for Special Sessions and Symposia along with Short Courses and Workshops is now open, with the proposal deadline of May 15, 2021.
Special Session and Symposium proposals: Technical Program Chair (Chris White)
Here is a list of the things we would need to know for a proposal for a session or symposium:
- a short description we can use for advertising
- expected level of participation (target audience, expected numbers of presentations/posters)
- sponsorship information (e.g. GAC section/division, affiliated/partner society etc.).
