Cancellation of GSP and ABGS events

March 17, 2020

The health and safety of everyone in the geophysical, exploration and production community is our top priority. Due to the rapidly escalating concerns relating to the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Geophysical Society of Pittsburgh (GSP) officers and Appalachian Basin Geophysical Symposium (ABGS) organizers have decided to cancel the remaining GSP events and delay the ABGS conference until next year, for the safety of all participants.


The decision to cancel was not taken lightly and was based on the latest scientific data being reported and guidance from regional experts. We recognize that the timing of this decision will inconvenience many of you and we apologize. However, this decision was made out of deep concern for the health and well-being of our registrants, staff, vendors, and the Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia community.


We will be offering a 100% refund to all participants for their registration and supporting fees. We will be in contact with you with more information on the refund process.


We intend to host the conference next June 2021, however, at this point in time we cannot commit to a specific set of dates. We will keep you informed regarding the timing but plan to hold the conference at the same venue.


We thank you for your support of the Geophysical Society of Pittsburgh and Appalachian Basin Geophysical Symposium. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this will cause and hope that we may continue our partnership with you in the future.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the conference organizers, Travis Duran or Bill Harbert.


Questions about refunds can be sent to Brian Lipinski.


Thank you for your understanding.

The GSP Board
