Advances in Marine Seismic Data Acquisition Workshop

7–9 September 2021 | Virtual

New date, new location!


7-9 September 2021

The workshop will bring together all aspects of marine seismic acquisition, highlighting advances in technologies and methodologies. It will focus on the science of data acquisition covering a broad range of topics, from advances in survey design to developments in seismic source, streamer and Ocean Bottom Seismic technology and its configurations, in order to address both exploration and development objectives. Workshop attendees will have a valuable opportunity to discuss among experts the future vision in domains such as machine learning, artificial intelligence and robotization.

Workshop Format

The format of the workshop will feature presentations by invited key experts who will share their experiences. The workshop will provide a unique opportunity for open and extended discussions among the participants.

Eight sessions (2 days). We will aim for one keynote speaker per day with a closing session at the end of the workshop to serve as the outlook going forward. The oral presentations are comprised of 20-minute talks followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. After each session, a 30-minute discussion session is planned. The objective of this session is to allow participants to discuss in detail and learn from each other what has worked for them and debate the issues and challenges facing them during their daily workflows. Session chairs will also serve as discussion leaders during the 30 minutes.

Poster Presentations are welcome to give ample time to the delegates to discuss the poster topic with the author(s). Posters will be in displayed in the workshop room available for viewing during coffee breaks and afternoon free time following each session.
