The CSPG Core Conference Committee is excited to celebrate geology across Canada at the 2020 CSPG Core Conference. This year, we will be holding the event on May 7-8th, kicking off the start of GeoConvention. We are excited for some of the timing changes this year, including moving the core meltdown back to Friday evening, and hosting a networking social on Thursday Evening. In addition, The Core Meltdown will be hosted this year at Jameson’s Irish Pub in Brentwood, where we expect good times to be had by all.

As a reminder, the short abstract submission deadline on January 30, is rapidly approaching, so if you or any of your colleagues are interested in participating we ask that you submit a short 1-2 paragraph synopsis of your work, the rough location of the core you would like to speak to (Alberta, BC, NWT, TX, etc.), and the name(s) of those presenting. Each presenter will be asked to do a short 10-15min PowerPoint presentation of their talk, two core tables capable of accommodating up to ~30m each and will be provided four 4x8 poster boards. If this is something you would like to participate in, please send your abstract to coreconference@cspg.org
