Austin, Texas USA
March 22-26, 2015
Sheraton Austin at the Capitol
Plans are underway to host the next Symposium on the Application of Geophysics to Engineering and Environmental Problems (SAGEEP) in Austin, Texas March 22-26, 2015. Local organizers Jeff Paine (General Chair), Doug Laymon, and Dennis Mills are working with EEGS staff to infuse a uniquely “Austin” experience into the 28th edition of SAGEEP, while simultaneously putting together a strong technical program under the guidance of Brad Carr (Technical Chair).
Be sure to make early plans to attend; Austin is a very popular spring destination and flights and rooms fill up quickly. South by Southwest SXSW is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences which began in 1987 and takes place in Austin every year. Next year, it is scheduled for the week prior to SAGEEP (March 13-22, 2015) - so the city and airport will be busy! The SAGEEP hotel room block will include 3 days prior to SAGEEP, so plan to come early and attend this iconic Austin spring event!
Please send an email to Jeff (email@example.com) if you would like to be on an informal email list for information about the conference as it develops. If you have an idea for a workshop or short course, now is a great time to suggest it to Jeff, Brad, or Short Course Chair Bill Doll (firstname.lastname@example.org) . We look forward to seeing you in Austin next March!
Call for Abstracts
The Technical Program is nearing capacity. There is room for a few oral and poster presentations if you still wish to submit an abstract at the online abstract submission site, but please do so as soon as possible. The first wave of acceptance notices go out on Nov. 20. Please contact Brad (email@example.com) or Jeff (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any special circumstances. Final revised abstracts and optional extended abstracts are due by Jan. 19, 2015. Submission details and a listing of session topics can be found at the SAGEEP 2015 Abstracts & Sessions page.
