2024 Annual Meeting - Call for Abstracts

A highlight of CGU membership is the Annual Scientific Meeting, which provides the opportunity to network with geoscientists from across the country. Collaborative and networking opportunities are enhanced by hosting meetings jointly with complementary scientific societies. In 2024 the CGU will be joined by the Canadian Society of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology (CSAFM).

Meetings provide the opportunity to:

  • Present current research to geoscientific colleagues and learn about the activities of other geoscientists.
  • Emphasize Canadian-focused research alongside global research.
  • Recognize and support winners of CGU awards and student paper awards.
  • Attend invited and plenary presentations.
  • Attend information sessions held by granting agencies.
  • Participate in annual Section and Executive meetings.
  • Participate in geoscience and professional development workshops.

We invite you to submit an abstract for inclusion in the list of presentations in this year's annual meeting.   Please review the session descriptions and then submit your abstract(s).  

Fee: $55 per abstract. This fee is non-refundable.

Deadline EXTENDED TO: Monday, March 18, 2024 at 11:59pm PST.

Speakers are responsible for their own registration fees, travel and accommodation to the annual meeting.

This event is taking place in person, in Ottawa, Ontario, May 26-29, 2024.
