The postponed AAPG ACE 2020 is on for September 29 – October 1! This year’s conference is being held all on-line and EGI is looking forward to engaging with members and visitors again. Though we don’t get to see you in person, your questions, ideas, and comments are always valuable to us and help guide us as we pursue the research and services you depend on.
EGI’s virtual exhibit booth is available all four days of the conference and will offer a variety of options for interacting with us— from live video presentations, technical talks, and on-demand pre-recorded topical videos, to downloadable resources and live chats or Zoom meeting appointments. ACE 2020—including exhibitor booths— will be available to registered participants on-demand through the end of 2020.
EGI will make most of our exhibitor content and resources available to EGI members after the conference at egi.utah.edu.
In addition, EGI Research Scientist Dr. Rasoul Sorkhabi will be presenting on Wednesday, September 30 at 3:35 p.m. during the afternoon History of Petroleum Geology session. His presentation is entitled Technological Developments Leading to the Petroleum System and Basin Modeling: Implications for Shale Plays and chronicles the critical developments in the past 100 hundred years that eventually led to the establishment of the petroleum system and basin modeling.
Among the virtual events planned for ACE 2020 is the recognition and celebration of AAPG award recipients. As an important part of the AAPG ACE tradition, a virtual AAPG Awards Presentation Show will be a part of the ACE 2020 programming.
EGI’s Chief Global Scientist, Tony Doré, is among those slated to be honored as a recipient of the Wallace E. Pratt Memorial Award.
If you have questions for us ahead of the conference, please feel free to email ContactEGI@egi.utah.edu. Until we see you again in person, we’ll be excited to engage virtually at AAPG ACE 2020.
