Deadline Looms for Houston Registration Savings
The last chance to get a special reduced registration rate for this year’s AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition ends March 21 – and registering by that date could save you as much as $120.
The AAPG meeting will be held April 10-13 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. The theme is “Making the Next Giant Leap in Geosciences,” a topic that will embrace not only domestic but also international activities, research and advances in the geosciences.
The theme also recognizes “both the historic achievements of scientists and the essential need for forward-looking, creative approaches to solving our energy needs,” said Stephen Levine, the meeting’s general chair.
Meeting highlights will include:
- Eight special forums, covering topics that range from shale plays to business and exploration strategies to workplace conditions to “understanding the impact” of the Macondo oil spill.
- This year’s Michel T. Halbouty Lecture, presented by David Lawrence, executive vice president for Shell Upstream Americas Exploration and Commercial.
- Several special luncheons, including the All-Convention Luncheon, featuring NASA astronauts Harrison “Jack” Schmitt, Kathryn Sullivan, James Reilly II and Andrew Feustel.
- This year’s Discovery Thinking Forum, the fourth presentation of the AAPG 100th Anniversary Committee’s program recognizing “100 Who Made a Difference.”
- Nine field trips and 17 short courses.
- For the first time at an AAPG ACE, e-posters (in addition to the traditional paper posters).
- Specific activities and sessions for students and young professionals.
- A large exhibition hall, featuring the latest in cutting-edge technology and information, plus the International Pavilion.
- The opening session, including the presentation of AAPG honors and awards and featuring the presentation of the Sidney Powers Memorial Award to professor, researcher and visionary geologist John W. Shelton.
