AAPG MidContinent Section Biennial Field Conference 2018

“New Insights into Carboniferous Cyclothems”

Cornhusker Marriott Hotel, Lincoln, NE, October 12-14th, 2018

Call for contributions

We seek scientific contributions to the program for this meeting, on the theme of Carboniferous cyclothems. We hope to hold a symposium on the afternoon of Friday October 12th, with oral and poster presentations. We also intend to have a core workshop on the morning of Sunday October 14th, and seek expressions of interest from organizations willing and able to display cored intervals through Carboniferous cyclothemic successions from different parts of the MidContinent. These sessions are aimed to complement the field excursion on Saturday October 12th, which will focus on the Virgilian (uppermost Pennsylvanian) Indian Cave Sandstone of SE Nebraska.

The deadline for submitting materials is July 15th, 2018. Notification of abstract acceptance for oral and poster presentations will be completed by August 17th, 2018.

We seek expressions of interest from potential sponsoring organizations or individuals. It is hoped that the main meeting room will also feature trade exhibits during these sessions, and expressions of interest from potential exhibitors are welcomed. Please contact Dan Blankenau for any enquiries related to sponsorship or trade exhibits.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Chris Fielding and Matt Joeckel, Convenors
