The Geological Society of America
AGI Pardee Symposium — Earth Anatomy Revealed: Geologic Mapping for Our Future, 8 a.m. to noon, Wednesday, Oct. 25.
Our need for information on earth materials, processes and history is escalating. Solving issues from public health to emergency preparedness, resource management and global hydrological and tectonic modeling require not only geologic maps at a full range of resolutions and formats, but also 3-D grids of physical properties from lithology to hydraulic conductivity. This session will highlight efforts to address these ongoing and urgent challenges, including innovative applications of geologic maps to social needs, new and evolving technologies and lessons from cutting-edge science such as extraterrestrial mapping.
More information available soon.
The American Rock Mechanics Association invites you to its 51st US Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium to be held in San Francisco, California, USA on 25-28 June 2017. The 2017 program will focus on new and exciting advances in all areas of rock mechanics and geomechanics. San Francisco is one of the country’s most dynamic cities. Home to some the world’s most innovative companies (Silicon Valley is nearby), San Francisco is known for its beautiful hills and views, its world-class restaurants, and its sophisticated cultural institutions. The symposium will be held at the Westin St. Francis on Union Square in the heart of the city.
The 3rd Annual Production Chemicals Optimization 2017 is returning to Houston, Texas this June with a jam-packed three-day agenda, guaranteed to exceed the industry's expectations on every level. The American Business Conferences has extensively researched with dozens of super majors, majors and small & independent operators across North America to uncover the biggest challenges and the greatest cost drivers in the production chemicals universe.
After the initial drill, and after the initial construction, chemicals become the most expensive part of the production optimization process. In a world of US$50-a-barrel oil, driving efficiency and lowering LOE costs is essential. A big focus of this cost-reduction drive is on production chemicals. But it's no longer just about cost, volumes and injection rates. To achieve operational excellence, operators will have to lead effectively, whether that is cost-effective, production volume-effective, to get the balance right between production performance and chemical costs.
This year's agenda is a direct reflection of the industry's most pressing issues, and promises to deliver exclusive E&P case studies, hard-hitting discussions for reducing wellbore failures, new applications of emerging chemistries, and innovative opportunities to treat Paraffin, Corrosion, H2S and Halite.
Join us for a memorable meeting with an outstanding technical program, educational field trips and fun special events. Colorado Springs, also known as Olympic City USA, is home to beautiful landscapes, miles of hiking trails, rich history, the United States Olympic Training Center, Air Force Academy and the towering rock formations of the Garden of the Gods. One of the most defining features is Pikes Peak, which inspired the patriotic song "America the Beautiful.” To submit an abstract and for complete details, visit www.aegannualmeeting.org.

Earth Science Week 2017 Theme Announced: 'Earth and Human Activity'
Alexandria, VA – The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to announce that the theme of Earth Science Week 2017 is "Earth and Human Activity." This year's event, the 20th annual Earth Science Week celebration, promotes awareness of what geoscience tells us about human interaction with the planet's natural systems and processes.
Earth Science Week 2017 learning resources and activities are engaging young people and others in exploring the relationship between human activity and the geosphere (earth), hydrosphere (water), atmosphere (air), and biosphere (life). This year's theme promotes public understanding and stewardship the planet, especially in terms of the ways people affect and are affected by these Earth systems.
"Human activity has a huge impact on Earth, and the possibilities open to humanity are, in turn, shaped by Earth's natural processes," says Geoff Camphire, AGI's Manager of Outreach. "The geosciences are essential for understanding how we can make the most of opportunities and manage challenges offered in areas such as energy, technology, climate change, the environment, natural disasters, industry, agriculture, recreation, and tourism."
To mark the occasion of the 20th annual Earth Science Week, AGI and key program partners are launching a slate of new initiatives, materials, and other offerings for participants throughout the year. Details will be announced in the coming months.
Reaching over 50 million people annually, AGI leads Earth Science Week in cooperation with its sponsors and the geoscience community as a service to the public. Each October, community groups, educators, and interested citizens organize celebratory events. Earth Science Week offers opportunities to discover the Earth sciences and engage in responsible stewardship of the Earth.
Earth Science Week is supported by many organizations, including the U.S. Geological Survey; the AAPG Foundation; National Park Service; NASA; Esri; Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration; Geological Society of America; American Geophysical Union; Association of American State Geologists; AmericaView; Howard Hughes Medical Institute; and Archeological Institute of America.
Reaching over 50 million people annually, Earth Science Week has been led by AGI in cooperation with its sponsors and the geoscience community since 1998. Earth Science Week 2017 will be celebrated October 8-14. To learn more, please visit www.earthsciweek.org. To order your Toolkits, please visit www.earthsciweek.org/materials. You may also call AGI Publications to place your order at 703-379-2480.
The American Geosciences Institute is a nonprofit federation of geoscientific and professional associations that represents more than 250,000 geologists, geophysicists and other earth scientists. Founded in 1948, AGI provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in the profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society's use of resources, resiliency to natural hazards, and interaction with the environment.
Resources for Future Generations

June 16-21, 2018
Vancouver Convention Centre, BC, Canada
Call for Sessions flyer and conference brochure.
The rapid growth of developing economies and the fundamental needs of many disadvantaged people across the globe are resulting in an increased demand for many resources and changes in the delivery of existing ones. The need for focused environmental priorities and new technologies will add additional requirements and constraints. The International Union of Geological Sciences, the Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences, the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, the Geological Association of Canada and the Mineralogical Association of Canada are partnering to bring industry, academia and governments together to tackle this growing issue. The Resources for Future Generations conference (RFG2018) takes its theme from a new IUGS initiative of the same name designed to mobilize geoscientists, policy-makers and other stakeholders to explore resource and related sustainability issues.
