Conference Update

The GEO Conference committee has finished reviewing abstracts for the upcoming conference, "Borderlines," and we're very pleased with the outcome. We received over 50 submissions, including three panel submissions, from over thirteen different international institutions including UMD, George Washington University, Georgetown University, University of Virginia, American University, University of Hawaii, Texas State University, University of Southern California, and many others. We received so many excellent abstracts that we have added a fourth person to every panel.

During a blind review process, our four abstract reviewers rated and commented on each abstract and suggested panel arrangements. Thanks to them for their hard work and insightful comments. We'll be sending out notifications in the next few days, so watch your inboxes! We received an overwhelming number of submissions for certain time periods, making the selection process extremely difficult.

Thank you to everyone for your interest and support for the GEO conference. We know that this event will be a great success due to your participation, on the panels and in the audience. See you on March 11 and 12!
