With more than 1,800 abstracts received for review, the 2018 Technical Program features over 1,080 quality presentations in 151 diverse sessions, including ten Special Sessions and one Special Global Session.

Sign up for the Technical Program by registering for the SEG Annual Meeting. Access to the Technical Program is included in the following registration types: Full Delegate Registration, One-Day Registration, and Two-Day Registration. Attendees registered for the Business of Applied Geophysics Sessions only (BAG Registration and Three-Day Exposition Registration) will have access to the Technical Program poster presentations.

The full Technical Program schedule for the SEG 2018 Annual Meeting will be posted early September.
