The Atlantic Geoscience Society congratulates Rob Raeside for his much deserved award!

We are deeply disappointed and saddened by the cuts made to academic programs at Laurentian University. Access to education in Northern Ontario will be seriously damaged and the community will lose a critical resource if this process continues. We stand with the Laurentian University community at this time and call on the Provincial Government of Ontario to work with the university community instead of destroying it.
The conference will consist mainly of oral and poster contributions, arranged in thematic special sessions and symposia as well as in general topical sessions. The schedule will be organized to promote discussion among meeting participants. A variety of short courses and field trips are planned for both before and after the conference. At this time we are planning for an “in-person” conference with the possibility for live-streaming options for some presenters and/or sessions. The call for Special Sessions and Symposia along with Short Courses and Workshops is now open, with the proposal deadline of May 15, 2021.
The spring and summer of 2020 saw many challenges, but a lack of excellent geoscience content was not one of them!. The AGS webinar series brought together geoscientists from across Canada for 15 talks between April and October, 2020. Thanks to AGS President Dave Lentz for coordinating and all our wonderful speakers for presenting!
