1993 Spring Meeting attendance hits a new high


  • Kevin P. Furlong


The 1993 Spring Meeting, held from May 24 to 28 in Baltimore, Md., and jointly sponsored by AGU, the Mineralogical Society of America, and the Geochemical Society, was the largest Spring Meeting. Approximately 2,288 papers were presented and 3,154 scientists attended.

In addition to the breadth and quality of the scientific sessions, attendees seemed to appreciate the spaciousness of the Baltimore Convention Center, the superb weather, and the Sunday afternoon ballgame at the new Orioles Park at Camden Yards.
