The 2015 annual AAPG Eastern Section meeting will be held Sept. 20-22 at the Union Station and Crowne Plaza Hotel compIex in downtown Indianapolis.

Previous Eastern Section meetings have been held in Indiana, including the 2009 meeting in Evansville and the 1999 meeting in Indianapolis.

As in 1999, the host will be the Professional Geologists of Indiana Inc. The 2015 Indy meeting will be a continuation of these past great meetings and a bridge to the future of regional petroleum exploration and production, as well as associated mineral and environmental industries.

There will be three field trips, three short courses, a series of student and YP-related events, including a student expo and job fair, as well as a full technical program with oral and poster sessions that will include the following themes:

  • Shale and Unconventional Resources.
  • Regional Geology and Reservoir Studies.
  • Environmental and Policy Issues.
  • Ordovician Regional and Reservoir Geology.
  • Carbon Sequestration.

Indianapolis has a central location between the Illinois, Michigan and Appalachian basins and the Cincinnati, Kankakee and Finley arches, great interstate, rail and airplane access, and has been called “The Crossroads of America” due to the many intersecting transportation corridors. The historic and renovated Union Station train station is a popular and unique location for many meetings and events, and the adjacent former railroad head house has been converted into a modern hotel including renovated Pullman sleeping cars. Many restaurants, clubs, hotels, shopping and other attractions are within a few blocks. Indianapolis is the state capital, and a cultural and business hub, with many colleges and universities in Indy and nearby.
