The World’s Largest Exploration Geophysics and Technical Exposition

Exposition Preview

The SEG International Exposition and 83rd Annual Meeting continues as the most valuable resource to the oil and gas, mining, environmental, and near-surface geophysical industries. To see the technological advancements being made in geophysics, plan to spend a part of every day in the exhibit area. The premier geoscience event in the world offers more opportunities to see, first-hand, new and unique types of technology for use in exploration and associated industries.

This year’s exhibition will feature more than 300 exhibiting companies from around the globe. The exposition will have many companies exhibiting for the first time. Most are start-up companies with the talents to bring new innovations to the industry.

Many new geophysical products and services will be introduced at this exhibition, including computer software and hardware; seismic acquisition and processing equipment; educational, consulting, and project management services; and numerous other innovative products and services.

Council Meeting

The Council will hold its yearly meeting at 1 p.m. on Sunday at the Hilton Americas. Council members will discuss important issues facing the Society.

Icebreaker and Expo Preview

The Sunday Evening Icebreaker/Exposition Preview (6-8 p.m.) will give attendees an opportunity to meet the exhibitors, map out a plan for the week, and to visit companies and renew acquaintances in a casual setting. The Icebreaker will feature a buffet of complimentary hors d’oeuvres, cash bars, and musical entertainment around the exhibition hall. Admittance is included in all full-delegate and Spouse Program registrations. Separate tickets are available for the Sunday night Icebreaker. Cost of the ticket will be US$60.

Consortium Showcase

Here you will find universities from around the globe partnered with industry and involved in research to discover innovative solutions for today’s exploration and near-surface puzzles. Other universities are represented around the exhibit hall to promote geologic and geophysical programs.

High Performance Computing Presentation Theater

Efforts are under way to have a High Performance Computing (HPC) Focus Group and Presentation Theater on the Exhibit Hall Floor at the 2013 SEG Annual Meeting in Houston. The Focus Group will be coordinated by the Society of HPC Professionals (SHPCP) and sponsored by companies that are key providers of HPC technology to the exploration and production industry. The goal of this effort will be to have an area for exhibiting companies in a concentrated area in the hall dedicated to the latest HPC technology available to the industry. This should assist attendees in minimizing the time needed to find and evaluate HPC technology and attend presentations that provide a concise overview and unique contributions that HPC is making to the energy industry. The theater will utilize the latest in projection technology and will provide HPC presentations with a cross section of hardware and software providers that are serving the industry. Presentations will be conducted throughout each day of the SEG Annual Meeting, including an Academia Special Session on Tuesday afternoon.

Technical Program

With more than 1,400 abstracts received for review, this year’s Technical Program includes 124 diverse sessions. Geoscience professionals from all geophysical disciplines and all parts of the world will share the latest case histories, technological advancements, and research discoveries.

The Technical Program will begin on Monday at 1:30 p.m., following the SEG Forum. It will include four Special Sessions and one Special Global Session. Poster sessions, oral sessions, and e-poster sessions will run consecutively through Thursday at noon on the third level of the Convention Center. Immediately following, convention workshops will take place in the technical session area on Thursday afternoon and all day Friday.

Luncheons with guest speakers will be held on Tuesday for Gravity and Magnetics and on Wednesday for Development and Production. This year the Near Surface Section will hold its first luncheon on Tuesday. The Near Surface Section will hold its annual meeting and dinner on Tuesday evening.

Please note that audio-taping and/or videotaping of any portion of the Technical Program or Workshops held in conjunction with SEG meetings is prohibited without prior consent of the SEG Executive Committee.

Preliminary review of abstracts implies that attendees will see the latest in geophysical technology and will explore new theories. The technical session schedule will be available online in August. Take a piece of the Annual Meeting back to the office with the Expanded Abstracts on USB or have approximately 400 of the recorded presentations delivered to you after the meeting. Visit the SEG Web site, www.seg.org/techprog, for more information.
