Push Begins for Denver Registration
Online registration as well as the complete technical program for the upcoming AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in Denver are now available online.
This year’s meeting will be held June 7-10 in Denver at the Colorado Convention Center – and the sooner you sign up for the meeting, the more money you can save on registration fees.
This year’s program features more than 1,000 technical presentations, 18 field trips and 22 short courses.
- Five forums: The History of Petroleum Geology; Challenges for Global Energy Demand – Short-Term Variability and Long-Term Solutions; Discovery Thinking; Global Climate Change (Anticipating a Carbon Constrained Future – Implications for the Fossil Fuel Industry); and an AAPG Divisions Energy Forum.
- The All-Convention Luncheon, featuring the presentation of this year’s AAPG Teacher of the Year award to Utah high school science teacher Ty Robinson and a talk by/conversation with T. Boone Pickens.
- Guilherme de Oliveira Estrella, the director of exploration and production for Petrobras, will give this year’s Michel T. Halbouty Lecture, shedding some light on the significant sub-salt discoveries his company has experienced over the past two decades.
- This year’s opening session will feature, in addition to Scott Tinker’s presidential address and the presentation of AAPG honors and awards, entertainment by the Rocky Mountain Children’s Choir.
- This year’s exhibits hall, in addition to offering the newest looks at the industry’s hottest technology, will once again be the setting for the International Pavilion and this year’s “Explore the Floor” contest.
As in past years the registration fees will be structured on a “tier” basis, and earlier registrants can save several hundreds of dollars by taking early action.
In fact, those who register by April 13 can save up to $200.
Registration and meeting details can be found at the AAPG Denver ACE 2009 Web site.
