Planning Starts for SLC
The time is right to start thinking about
AAPG's next annual
meeting -- a session that will be held in the heart of some
of the country's most scenic and accessible geology.
"Energy -- Our Monumental Task" is the theme for
AAPG's 88th annual meeting, to be held May 11-14 in Salt Lake City,
host of the recent Winter Olympic games.
Salt Lake City also is surrounded by classic geologic
sites that serve as natural laboratories for both information seekers
and fun seekers (see cover photo for an example).
The Salt Lake planning committee members are putting
together a technical program that has "something for everyone."
AAPG, its divisions and SEPM together are sponsoring 50 oral sessions
and 50 poster sessions -- a total of about 1,000 technical presentations.
for abstracts was included in the May EXPLORER. Abstracts are
due Sept. 18.
Nine technical themes are being offered:
- The Business Side of Petroleum.
- Global Energy Resources.
- Environmental Issues.
- Structures and Tectonics.
- Technologies -- New and Proven.
- Stratigraphy, Sedimentology and Paleontology.
- Petroleum Systems and Geochemistry.
- Student Presentations.
