The UNLV Geoscience Department will be hosting the 16th annual GeoSymposium online on April 29 – 30th!

The symposium is a student-run event, designed to provide graduate and undergraduate students with an opportunity to present their original research and receive feedback from members of industry, government professionals, academic experts and members of the community.

Our second virtual GeoSymposium will include oral and poster presentations, keynote speakers, and a career day event! A digital program will be provided to view student abstracts with links to poster presentations and audio clips of students presenting their work. The career day event will include presentations by industry representatives and provide undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to meet with professional geoscientists. Learn more about the first GeoSymposium Career Day event here!

GeoSymposium showcases a wide range of important graduate and undergraduate research and provides a forum for participating students to develop presentation skills in a friendly and relaxed environment. Student projects often include diverse topics, such as: soils, geomorphology, hydrogeology, paleontology, volcanology, structural geology, planetary geology, igneous petrology, stratigraphy and much more. We hope that you can join us for this event!
