This is your opportunity to present some research, build up a professional network, hone your skills, gain technical prowess, and see seismic interpretation project development in action. All aspects of the geosciences, including geoengineering, are encouraged to attend. AAPG is a diverse association with members that encompass a wide array of exploration, engineering, sustainable energy technologies and environmental solutions. Integration of all the aspects of the geosciences will be needed to address energy and sustainability issues. This conference is in keeping with our meeting’s theme, “Energy for All,” and we encourage a wide range of diverse voices, research, and solutions from our students.
