The Spring Symposium is the Geophysical Society of Houston’s premier technical event of the year.  The 2020 Symposium has been postponed to April 13-14 and will honor the accomplishments of Mike Graul. 

The theme of the 2020 Symposium is “How Geophysicist-Machine Collaboration is Changing Our Industry”.  It will include theory and case studies that highlight the applications of new technologies to solve Geophysical and E&P problems.  The symposium talks will feature industry experts from operators, service companies and academia.  Unique to this meeting are the extended presentation and discussion time.   Ample time is allowed to fully develop topics and engage in lively discussion.

As in previous years the program will include a SEG Student Challenge Bowl, a roast of our honoree and a vendor hour.   The vendor hour provides time to relax with a beverage and leisurely review the capabilities of leading industry vendors.

Current Speakers and Topics include:

Satinder Chopra (TGS) - Machine Learning for Seismic Facies Classification
Christopher Ross - Predicting Production Metrics for Unconventional Shale Reservoirs
Mike Li and Chaoshun Hu (Chevron) - Using Meta Learning to Build Adaptive AI Model for Oil and Gas Exploration
