Petroleum Systems Analysis ‘Science or Art?’

Next year on the 24-25 April 2019, the Geological Society will be hosting a conference entitled Petroleum Systems Analysis 'Science or Art?' to celebrate the life of IGI's greatly missed founder and Director, Chris Cornford. 

Approaches to tackling the scientific and practical questions in the fields of Petroleum Geochemistry and Petroleum Systems Analysis range from the entirely theoretical to the empirical. Chris Cornford embraced both in his working life. The integrated approach he espoused will form the basis of the technical programme for the Conference covering two themes:

• Recent developments in the use of data including integration of models and (big) data; use of visualisation and data exploration or mining techniques.
• Topical issues & controversies ranging from mass balance approaches, petroleum migration to specific modelling studies and practical applications.

The Conference will be inspired by Chris’ ethos of innovation, encouragement of youth and challenging received wisdom, and will be held at The Geological Society, Burlington House, London.  www.geolsoc.org.uk/petroleum 

Call for Abstracts:
Please submit abstracts for oral and poster contributions that cover any of the above themes to: sarah.woodcock@geolsoc.org.uk before 30 September 2018
