AAPG’s Latin America and Caribbean Region invites you to participate in the 2020 Virtual Research Symposia, a conference series highlighting the geology of some of the region’s most prolific basins.

The Symposia are technical events targeted to researchers and professionals working both in industry and academia. Each 2-day event includes four technical sessions, keynote presentations with world renowned speakers and daily panel discussions featuring experts in the field.

With highly discounted registration fees – $US 50 for professionals and $25 for students –the symposia are accessible to individuals throughout the region, including those who are unable to obtain company support for training.

The first symposium, organized in partnership with the Colombian Association of Petroleum Geologists and Geophysicists (ACGGP) and the Colombian Geological Society (SCG), will take place via Zoom Enterprise on 23-24 July 2020. AAPG is working closely with Zoom and has implemented a series protocols to protect the security of all presenters, panelists and participants.
