Virtual GA Student Symposium (vGASS) 2021

Government restrictions regarding the COVID-19 pandemic are likely to remain in place for some months and this will prevent us from holding the GA’s Student Symposium (GASS) at Burlington House this year. Therefore the event will be run virtually over two half days; the afternoon of Thursday 20 May and the morning of Friday 21 May 2021. This is not a decision we have come to lightly, but the safety and health of all attendees and participants is our foremost concern.

vGASS presents a unique opportunity for geology students to share their research not only with their peers 
but with professional and amateur geologists as well.

If you would like to participate in vGASS 2021 and share your research either through a talk or poster then 
please apply here.

If you would like to attend the event please register your interest by emailing:

Thank you, keep safe and best wishes,
