Geologists’ Association Student Symposium 2020

GASS 2020 postponed

It may not surprise you to hear that in this present climate we will be postponing the Geologists’ Association Student Symposium 2020 (GASS 2020), which was scheduled to be held at Burlington House on the 15th of May.

Given the currently unfolding COVID-19 pandemic, and following the closure of the Geological Society until the end of April and current government advice, we have unfortunately had to make the tough decision to postpone the upcoming Geologists’ Association Student Symposium. This is not a decision we have come to lightly, but the safety and health of all attendees and participants is our foremost concern.

We have decided not to schedule a new date until we know how the situation is going to play out. Burlington house is already booked heavily for November with rescheduled events so we may end up cancelling GASS 2020. GASS 2021 will be on the 21st May 2021.

We shall endeavour to keep you updated as to any changes.

Thank you for understanding and best wishes,
