Swiss Association of Petroleum Geologist and Engineers The 2007 Annual Convention will be held from June 23-25 in Ortisei (Val Gardena, Italy) with the Geology of the classical area of the Dolomites as the main theme. A pre-excursion was held at the end of September to determine the most attractive route.
The excursion will be guided by Prof. Wolfgang Schlager, Amsterdam, who from his worldwide carbonate experience will cover the sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy of the area, together with Prof. Carlo Doglioni, Rome an expert in tectonics and the interplay between tectonics and deposition in the Dolomites and Prof. Daniel Bernoulli, Basel who contributes his rich knowledge of the sedimentology and the regional geology of the southern Alps.
The lectures session on the first day will primarily be devoted to the Geology of the Dolomites. Invitations to members will go out in late February 2007 and the program will also be posted on our web site (www.vsp-asp.ch).
Apart from the scientific content the Convention of the ASP provides a platform for informal networking between professionals from the Industry and Academia, both Swiss and international (one third of our membership is non Swiss). We welcome thus students to participate (students pay half of the membership fee and also only half of the convention fee).
ASP is now on the list for the European tour of AAPG distinguished lectures and we will post the program on our web site as soon as it is known. The lectures will be held initially in Geneva.
