The 2018 CSEG Symposium is our seventh annual event that showcases the CSEG's best speakers, with talks highlighting our mission to estimate the truth about the earth in a case study format. This year the Symposium will honour Mauricio Sacchi and features the theme of Challenges & Opportunities.

Symposium Overview

The format is a one-day, single session event, with lunch included. In order to attract case studies, there will be no published papers related to the work shown. Featured speakers will present by invitation only.

Each year the Symposium will honour one or more notable CSEG members, and the themes of the talks presented will relate to the work of the Honouree(s). In 2018, the Symposium will honour Mauricio Sacchi and features the theme of Challenges & Opportunities.

A highlight of the lunch will be the annual CSEG awards ceremony, with the outstanding achievements of the society's members honoured. Tickets for the lunch only will also be available.

The 2018 CSEG Symposium promises to be a highlight of the year, and a not-to-miss event for CSEG members!

Note: The Symposium has moved to an exciting new venue “Hudson” (top floor of the Bay building on Stephen Ave).
