AAPG Eyes Cape Town in 2008
AAPG will return to Africa for the 2008 International Conference and Exhibition, with the announcement of the Oct. 26-29 meeting in Cape Town, South Africa.
The theme is “African Energy – Global Impact.” The general chair is Sipho Mkhize, and the vice chair is Jeff Aldrich. Both are with PetroSA.
AAPG last held its international meeting in Africa in 2002, in Cairo, Egypt.
Organizers are planning for a wide-ranging technical program, field trips to world-class deepwater sediment sites and other activities that will take advantage of South Africa ’s culture and geology.
Other details – including abstract deadline information – will be highlighted in an ad in the October EXPLORER, and ongoing updates will be available on www.aapg.org/capetown/.
