New Mexico Geological Society Annual Spring Meeting
Macey Center, New Mexico Tech campus, Socorro, NM

Every spring, the Society holds a meeting in Socorro to allow presentation of geoscience research, principally from New Mexico and adjacent areas. This event is always well attended and is a great way to meet other researchers and students working in New Mexico. During the meeting, several Society scholarships are awarded to students from New Mexico.

Student participation is highly encouraged as this meeting provides an excellent venue for student presentations. Oral and poster sessions will focus largely on the geology of New Mexico and adjacent areas. Abstracts are solicited from all geoscience disciplines.
