- Banff meeting was cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic: we had a good set of Solid Earth sessions, including several sessions that were being run with the Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG) and a session sponsored by the Geological Association of Canada (GAC).
- SES and GAC Geophysics division co-sponsored a field trip “Transect of the Rockies, from the foreland to the trench”, which was to be held between the CGU meeting and GeoConvention; this was also cancelled due to the pandemic.
- Over the summer, CGU has run a series of oral and poster presentations via Zoom, based on abstracts submitted to the Banff meeting.
- We are not awarding the SES Best Student Presentation Award this year because of the limited number of students that are doing online presentations (award normally consists of a plaque + $750)
- The union-level Chevron Canada Outstanding Student Paper in Seismology will be awarded ($500). The completion is being coordinated by SES. The award will be judged based on 5-page extended abstracts; deadline August 21, 2020.
