Organizers of the 2009 AAPG Annual Convention want members to have a say in the technical program’s content.

That’s right. This is your chance for input for shaping the program.

The 2009 meeting will be held in Denver June 7-10, with the theme “Image the Past – Imagine the Future.”

To start preparations, the Organizing Committee is seeking member suggestions for oral and poster sessions, session chairs, short courses, field trips, instructors and trip leaders – and the committee is especially interested in receiving suggestions of a “global nature that will appeal to the vast majority of attendees.”

Organizers said they want the technical program to cover a broad spectrum of geological interests, including:

  • Global Deepwater E&P.
  • Stratigraphy and Sedimentology.
  • Structural Geology.
  • Exploration and New Plays.
  • Philosophy of Exploration.
  • Resource Development & Reservoir Characterization.
  • Tight Gas.
  • Unconventional Reservoirs.
  • Hydrocarbon Systems and Basin Analysis.
  • New Opportunities and Technologies.
  • Astrogeology.
  • Petroleum Geology and Public Policy.
  • Alternative and Renewable Energy.
  • The Environment and Responsible Development.
  • Geophysical Applications.

Organizers said they hope to link many of the sessions to recent advances in the exploration for conventional and unconventional emerging resources with global applicability.

Send suggestions via e-mail to general technical program chair Steve Sonnenberg at sasonnenbg@mines.edu and include contact information with your recommendations.

Note that submittal of a suggestion does not guarantee inclusion in the program.

The deadline for submitting suggestions is Dec. 15.
