The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), and Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) are proud to announce the 1st Middle East Geoscience Student Conference which is scheduled to take place from the 26th February to the 1st of March 2017 in Al Ain, UAE.
Building on the success of previous years’ Young Professionals and Students Summits held during the GEO Conference and Exhibition, the three societies have decided to join forces once more to bring to the region an exciting yearly event for geoscience students. The conference will rotate within the region in odd years and be held alongside the GEO Conference and Exhibition during even years.
The student conference will offer participants from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region a chance to compete in the prestigious and renowned AAPG Imperial Barrel Award Program, EAGE Geo-Quiz and SEG Challenge Bowl. Participating students will also be able to advance their existing knowledge, discuss opportunities, expand their horizons and share their expertise with their peers from different universities and with industry and academia professionals.
