AAPG ICE 2019 Student and Young professional events

yp meet and greet

This event, sponsored by the AAPG Young Professionals Committee, serves to bridge the gap between the students, young professionals and experienced professionals. At the Meet and Greet, students and recent graduates are paired with young or experienced professionals to gain an insider’s perspective into the petroleum industry and share direction on the meeting itself (what to expect, technical sessions and other recommendations.) Mentors and paired protégés will attend the Opening Ceremony together.

To participate in the Meet and Greet please indicate during the registration process.

student and yp reception

All registered students and faculty are invited to attend the Student Reception for food, fun and networking. Meet AAPG leaders and officers as well as executives from the long-time corporate sponsor, ExxonMobil. In addition to these industry connections, you can also meet up with fellow students-all in a fun and relaxing environment.

career challenges

The hydrocarbon industry’s new paradigms, developing technologies and moving targets require geoscientists to be trained continuously and efficiently. This ICE panel discussion will feature the perspectives of young geoscientists representing both operators and service companies as well as advice from head hunters and talent managers working in the energy sector. Young professionals, recent graduates and students preparing to enter the industry in coming years will benefit from this interactive session

call for judges

Judges Needed

Have you ever thought about volunteering as a technical presentation judge at ICE? Judges perform the crucial role of determining the winners of the Gabriel Dengo Memorial Award (for best oral presentation at ICE) and the Ziad Beydoun Memorial Award (for best poster presentation at ICE), as well as the Carlos Walter M. Campos and Ozan Sungurlu Memorial Awards for best student presentations. Whether it’s your 50th ICE or your first, participating as a judge is a great way to get involved. Just sign up during online conference registration and indicate which poster and/or oral presentations best fit your schedule and interests. All attendees, including students, YPs, Associates, and Members are encouraged to sign up. Worried you’re not a subject matter expert? Don’t be! Critical listening and thoughtful evaluation are the only required skills. Plus, you can network while you learn! Still unsure about being a judge? Email with questions. See you in Buenos Aires!

volunteers needed

Conference Volunteers Needed

Calling all students! Sign up to be a volunteer at ICE and benefit by earning cash and enjoying valuable interactions at the convention! Volunteers are essential to the success of the conference. As a volunteer, you might assist judges with finding and returning their scorecards, help out at the opening session, assist oral session chairs or poster presenters in their sessions, or support AAPG staff in the registration area or exhibit hall. Volunteers will receive $25 for each shift (typically 4-5 hours) to help offset the cost of attending the conference. You will have an opportunity to sign up as a volunteer when you register online; those interested will be contacted approximately one month before the conference to confirm availability and role preferences. To be eligible for the cash stipend, volunteers must be either students or recent (2018-2019) graduates.
