SEG 2020: Vision - Celebrating a Century of Discovery [Society of Economic Geologists]


After careful consideration, the SEG 2020 Organizing Committee has decided to postpone the SEG 2020 Vision Conference in Whistler, Canada, until September 2021. The health and safety of attendees is our top priority, even as we recognize the importance of our annual meeting as an opportunity to gather, connect with others, and share ideas.

We are pleased with the nearly 400 abstract submissions and plan to preserve these on a confidential basis until abstract submission re-opens in early 2021. At that stage, attendees will have the option to resubmit, modify, or withdraw abstracts for the conference in 2021. We appreciate the support of our sponsors and exhibitors and are working on the logistics of the change. SEG will follow up shortly with all conference stakeholders, including presenters, workshop organizers, and field trip leaders, to ensure a smooth transition to the 2021 event.

Our Centenary is a once-in-a-lifetime celebration for our Society, and this postponement will allow us to come together safely to celebrate. We continue to work through these changes and the impacts on the initial plans already in place for future SEG conferences. We will update you as plans evolve.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during these challenging times.
