Mark your calendars! The 2017 annual meeting of the Association of Earth Science Editors will take place in Yellowknife, N.W.T., September 6 to 9, 2017. Yellowknife is well known for its former gold mines and more recently for its diamond mines. It is also a world-class location to observe well-preserved geological features and formations from the Late Archean Era. Many geological features, including pillow basalt, glacial striae and permafrost features, can be seen right in town. We hope that you will take some time to enjoy the region’s many natural attractions, including its geological diversity, while attending the meeting.
AESE’s meetings generally consist of 2 days of technical sessions and a 1-day field trip. Please join us for a fun-filled and educational experience this September. Meeting headquarters will be the Explorer Hotel.
The meeting is open to anyone interested in earth science editing, publishing and outreach. The program is still in the planning stage. Watch for meeting updates on AESE’s web page www.aese.org. For more information, please contact Host Chair, Erin Palmer firstname.lastname@example.org.
