Call for Abstracts Is Now Closed

The Technical Program Committee is selecting abstracts under the following theme/subthemes that have direct application to the industry. In particular, abstracts that deal with the hottest, most relevant play areas, both domestic and international, are most desirable. The committee also encourages case studies that illustrate the successful implementation of new techniques and technologies. In addition, student participation is a priority — AAPG ICE is an invaluable opportunity to showcase graduate research that advances the industry.
