There’s Still Time to Get Suggestions To Denver
There’s still time to have an impact on the technical content of the 2009 AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition.
Organizers of the event, which will be held in Denver June 7-10 that year, want members to have a say in the technical program’s content.
But time is running out; the deadline for suggestions is Dec. 15.
The meeting’s theme is “Image the Past – Imagine the Future.”
To start preparations, the Organizing Committee is seeking member suggestions for oral and poster sessions, session chairs, short courses, field trips, instructors and trip leaders – and the committee is especially interested in receiving suggestions of a “global nature that will appeal to the vast majority of attendees.”
Organizers said they want the technical program to cover a broad spectrum of geological interests, including:
- Global Deepwater E&P.
- Stratigraphy and Sedimentology.
- Structural Geology.
- Exploration and New Plays.
- Philosophy of Exploration.
- Resource Development and Reservoir Characterization.
- Tight Gas.
- Unconventional Reservoirs.
- Hydrocarbon Systems and Basin Analysis.
- New Opportunities and Technologies.
- Petroleum Geology and Public Policy.
- Alternative and Renewable Energy.
- The Environment and Responsible Development.
- Geophysical Applications.
Organizers said they hope to link many of the sessions to recent advances in the exploration for conventional and unconventional emerging resources with global applicability.
Send suggestions via e-mail to general technical program chair Steve Sonnenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org and include contact information with your recommendations.
Note that submittal of a suggestion does not guarantee inclusion in the program.
And remember: The deadline for submitting suggestions is Dec. 15.
