Houston Home to SEG's International Exposition

The George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston is the gathering place for close to 10,000 geophysicists from around the world this week as the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) holds its International Exposition and 83rd Annual Meeting.

The event, which began and runs through Friday, will highlight exploration and development in the upstream energy industry through a series of exhibitions, symposiums, student workshops and other programs.

“Our Annual Meeting is the focal point of the SEG’s year and provides great opportunities to interact with colleagues, develop new friends and contacts, listen to the industry experts talk about the latest developments in geophysics, and see firsthand the new technologies that are emerging in our profession,” said David Monk, SEG president in a statement.

When they are not listening to technical presentations from experts from around the world, attendees will have an opportunity to network and to view some 350 exhibits situated on the main convention floor.

The exposition notes the increased importance of geophysicists in unconventional oil and gas areas, according to Stephen Emery, senior manager of meetings and expositions for the SEG.

The SEG was founded in 1939, and is headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
