AGeS3 - Advancing Geochronology Science, Spaces, and Systems

Please join us for four hours on May 7 for the 2024 AGeS Community Symposium.

All are invited to attend. The symposium is intended to strengthen the geochronology community and its networks and will provide opportunities for senior scientists, early career scientists, and graduate students to engage and interact. The symposium will also include opportunities for questions and discussion about the new AGeS-TRaCE (Training and Community Engagement) microaward program, which provides awards of up to $10,000 (no overhead) for projects aimed at addressing needs in training and community engagement within the broad field of geochronology. The AGeS-TRaCE deadline is October 8, 2024. 

Virtual Community Symposium - Detailed Schedule
Tuesday May 7, 2024
8 am-12 pm PT 9 am-1 pm MT 10 am-2 pm CT 11 am-3 pm ET

The symposium will comprise two sessions with invited talks, AGeS updates, and short AGeS project presentations, as well as two breakout sessions to enable discussion and feedback on Community Needs and interaction between AGeS-Grad awardees and future program applicants. 

Session 1: Geochronology Community activities

Session 2: Geochronology advances

If you are interested in joining the AGeS listserv to stay updated on AGeS funding opportunities and other activities, please visit the AGeS website to subscribe.

We look forward to seeing you on May 7.
