These finalists' presentations scored the highest out of the 1,090 accepted presentations (oral and poster) for the 2018 Annual Meeting Technical Program. Each was evaluated by judges based on items; such as, delivery, structure, technical veracity, innovation, A/V quality and effectiveness, and overall presentation. 

After further evaluation by the 2018 Annual Meeting Technical Program Committee, eight of these presenters will be honored at the SEG Honors and Awards Ceremony during the SEG International Exposition and 89th Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, with one of the following awards: Top Oral Paper, Oral Paper Honorable Mention, Top Poster Paper, Poster Paper Honorable Mention, Top Student Oral Paper, Student Oral Paper Award of Merit, Top Student Poster Paper, and Student Poster Paper Award of Merit. 

Kudos to all on a job well done!
