We are pleased to announce that the expanded abstracts submitted for the 18th International Conference on Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR 2020) have been published by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). Although the Conference has been postponed until 2022, the abstracts are now available to all authors and co-authors who submitted expanded abstracts for the 2020 Conference.
An email, containing information about accessing the published abstracts, was sent on November 16, 2020 to all those who submitted abstracts that were accepted for the Conference. Authors were encouraged to share the email with their co-authors. Any authors or co-authors who have not received information about accessing the abstracts should contact Continuing and Professional Education Services at Learn@mines.edu for assistance.
We are pleased to announce that the Conference has been rescheduled to be held in 2022, also in Golden, Colorado. Specific information about the rescheduled Conference, including dates, agendas, paper submission, and more will be made available as the time for the Conference draws nearer.
Also, updated information regarding GPR 2020 abstracts is available. Please visit the Abstracts page of this website for more information.
Like all of your institutions, agencies, and companies, Colorado School of Mines (Mines) is working to manage the constantly evolving Corona virus situation. The pandemic has had a major impact on Mines, which planned to host GPR 2020, the 18th International Conference on Ground Penetrating Radar. We anticipate that this situation will continue for the foreseeable future. We appreciate your support and understanding during this challenging time. Taking into account projections by epidemiologists combined with international travel restrictions, along with local, state, and national guidelines to mitigate the spread of infection, we are left with no choice but to postpone GPR 2020 from its planned dates of June 14-19, 2020 at Mines. At present, we are considering options for rescheduling the conference and managing the substantial number of extended abstracts that we have already received. We will send an update as soon as we have determined a firm plan and schedule. This outcome is disappointing, but we believe that our global GPR community is resilient, and we look forward to reconnecting with all of you when the health situation has been mitigated.
Authors, presenters, and reviewers — thank you for your initial submissions and reviews. Your session and paper topics are exciting and valuable for the GPR community. For all conference participants — thank you for your support, including help with conference planning, helping to spread the word in your local contexts, and in all ways that you support the GPR community.
If you have registered for the conference as an author, exhibitor, or sponsor, you will receive a full refund on the credit/debit card you used to complete the transaction. Payments made by other means will be refunded in the mode by which they were made. Please be patient with us as we complete this process; it may be a few days before reimbursement is processed.
