This year's international meeting, sponsored jointly with the Mexican Association of Petroleum Geologists, will be held Oct. 24-27 in Cancun, Mexico.

The site for all activities is the Cancun Convention Center, featuring a nearly 30,000-square-foot ballroom that will house the large exhibits area.

The meeting's theme is "Petroleum Industry in the 21st Century: Technology, Business and Frontiers," which will be explored through field trips, short courses, special talks and a technical program that features more than 340 presentations.

  • Deep Water Exploration, Development and Production.
  • Geology and Seismic Interpretation.
  • Mexican Basins and Beyond.
  • Management and Strategy.
  • Beyond Conventional Petroleum.

  • On Tuesday, Oct. 26, Pilar Luna Erreguerena, head of underwater archaeology at the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico, will discuss "Underwater Archaeology: A New Vision of the Past."
