CPS/SEG 2014 Beijing International Geophysical Conference & Exposition
The CPS/SEG 2014 Beijing International Geophysical Conference & Exposition, co-organized by Chinese Petroleum Society (CPS) and Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), took place at the Beijing International Convention Center (BICC) from 21-24 April 2014 and was a resounding success. Over 1,150 attendees of conference delegates, exhibition delegates, students and VIPs attended from 14 countries and regions; the exposition covering 6,000 square-meters space accommodated 59 companies including around 18 exhibitors of overseas registrations and local registrations by IOCs Office; and 334 papers (238 oral presentations + 96 e-posters) were featured in the technical sessions.
The conference's theme of Advancing Geophysical Innovation proved to be an excellent platform for the attendees to exchange their ideas of leading-edge exploration and development technologies around the globe, all while presenting a prime opportunity to connect with industry peers and experts. The technical content of the program on 22-24 April offered five parallel oral sessions and four e-poster sessions each day, addressing hot topics, innovations, and advancements in the geophysical field.
Aside from Technical Sessions, the conference featured a robust series of event highlights including the Borehole Seismic Workshop, Road Ahead Technical Session, Summit Forum, SEG Challenge Bowl and SEG Presidential Talk.
Thanks to all the generous sponsors including ConocoPhillips, Paradigm, Sercel, PGS, Aroundwave Software, PEGETE Group, and GeoSystem, the conference was a big success. Conferences of this type will be sponsored by CPS and SEG every four years and we will look forward to the next one in 2018!
