Special Theme: “Our Common Future: Reliability, Robustness, and Resiliency for Effective Risk Management”

The New Mexico Geological Society would like to invite you to attend our Annual Spring Meeting on April 16, 2020. This all-day conference will include presentations, panel discussions, poster presentations, and network opportunities on the topic of the “Three R’s of Risk Management” (Reliability, Robustness, and Resiliency) as it applies to sectors in water and natural resources. Attendees are invited to join the discussion on how to improve risk communication and management within their sectors, following the theme into a broad range of applications such as oil and gas, water resource management and utilities, agriculture, university programs, and work force. Our goal is to bring together our diverse community in acknowledgement of our common future to inspire, collaborate, and motivate participants to increase effective risk management through reliability, robustness, and resiliency.

A call for abstracts will be made in January, 2020. Abstracts related to the special theme session, or to the geology of New Mexico and adjacent states (including Mexico), will be invited for posters or oral presentations. Abstracts on non-regional topics of interest will also be considered.
