It's time to get serious about your plans for Salt Lake City.

The pre-registration deadline for this year's AAPG Annual Meeting is April 8 — and by pre-registering, members can save money while securing slots on the many field trips, short courses and other activities.

This year's meeting will be held May 11-14 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City. The theme is "Energy — Our Monumental Task."

There are many ways to register: by mail, by fax, by telephone and — the newest way — online.

Salt Lake, of course, was the site of the recent Winter Olympics and is in the heart of a region that features some of the planet's most beautiful and amazing geology.

The huge technical program — including papers, posters, short courses and field trips — is divided into nine themes:

  • The Business Side of Geology.
  • Global Energy Resources.
  • Environmental Issues.
  • Reservoirs.
  • Structure and Tectonics.
  • Technologies — New and Proven.
  • Stratigraphy, Sedimentology and Paleontology.
  • Petroleum Systems and Geochemistry.
  • Student Presentations.

And speaking of the technical program, meeting officials are looking for volunteers to help in the judging of papers and posters — a function that determines the winners of the Matson and Braunstein awards, as well as the SEPM and Division awards.

Volunteers are asked to judge one oral or poster session. For that, participants get to attend the free judges' continental breakfast on Monday, May 12, and also receive a certificate of participation and a logo pin.

To volunteer, simply mark your registration form.
