GBAC 2021 - Las Vegas - October 13-16
Thank you to our Platinum Sponsors:
37th GBAC October 14-17, 2020 We are excited to invite you to the 37th Great Basin Anthropological Conference this October at the world-famous Flamingo Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. For 70 years, Flamingo Las Vegas has set the trend for Las Vegas style. This is where The Strip began, and though much has changed since then, the Flamingo’s vibrancy and allure remain. If you want food by top celebrity chefs, Vegas has got it. If you like entertainers, top acts are playing. And don’t forget the art and history museums. Use the Caesars Experience Vegas guide to choose your favorite and make reservations. Come to the conference but do so much more. Traveling to (and around) Las Vegas is easy. Each day at McCarran International Airport, nearly 1,000 inbound and outbound flights provide nonstop service from more than 130 U.S. and international cities. The airport is centrally located and easy to access. With many transport options, including shuttles, taxis, ride shares, and public transportation, traveling to and from the conference will be a breeze.
The Great Basin Anthropology Association (GBAA) is proud to announce Student Poster Awards as part of the biennial Great Basin Anthropological Conference (GBAC). The first awards were made at the Las Vegas meetings in 2006. This award seeks to recognize the top three outstanding contributions of student research at a GBAC meeting. All student members of the GBAA are eligible and encouraged to participate. Posters will be reviewed by a committee of at least 3 GBAA committee members appointed by the GBAA Officers. Evaluation criteria will include the: originality and relevance of the research. quality of the arguments presented. quality of the visual presentation. The research presented must reflect the applicant’s work and not that of an advisor. There will be three awardees selected. The first-place prize winner will receive a $300.00 cash prize, second place winner will receive $200.00 and third place $100.00. In case of a tie, funds will be distributed equally to awardees. Posters authored by more than one student may be submitted; the award will be presented to the primary author. The winners of the contest will be announced at the Banquet.
