Seismix is an international symposium on seismic imaging that is held every two years. The first meeting was held at Cornell in 1984, and since that time, it has visited Canada, Australia, Finland, China, Spain and many other places around the world. The original motivation for Seismix came from a group of seismologists interested in pursuing national programs of multichannel seismic reflection profiling of continents and their margins. Notable examples include BIRPS in the UK, DEKORP in Germany, BELCORP in Belgium, Lithoprobe in Canada and FIRE in Finland. In the last decade, Seismix has diversified from crustal reflection profiling to include most kinds of seismic imaging methods that can be applied to the crust and underlying mantle lithosphere. Thus, methods include those that use active sources or passive sources, and applications range from exploration through to the solid Earth. The emphasis is on new methods and their applications, and on advancing our understanding of crustal/lithospheric dynamics, structure and processes. The symposium is unique in the way that it brings together the active/passive source community and those who work on solid Earth/exploration problems.
The American Association of Petroleum Geologists with SEPM (Society for Sedimentary Geology) and Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists (CSPG) invite you to join us for the AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition 19–22 June, 2016, plus pre- & post-events, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
The 2016 program will focus on new and exciting advances in rock mechanics and geomechanics. In addition to being the central hub of the petroleum industry, Houston is one of the country's most cosmopolitan and diverse cities that offers a great variety of activities and destinations for visitors. Houston's deep cultural offerings include world- class fine arts museums and the Natural Science Museum as well as its Symphony, Grand Opera, and Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. The Houston Astros baseball team is in full swing in June; Galveston beckons with its beaches, bay, and bustling boardwalk; and NASA's Houston Space Center is an icon that cannot be missed.
Technical tours and field trips are being planned. Sight- seeing tours will include various city landmarks, social activities and other attractions. Short courses and work- shops will be held immediately prior to the symposium and will be listed as they are confirmed. Details will be provided on the symposium web page as they become available.
The AESC 2016 will showcase the latest geoscience research, provide opportunities for professional development and the space to connect and collaborate with your peers.
Adelaide is a vibrant coastal city surrounded by interesting geology on the door-step. A city that is easy to get to and easy to get around. Adelaide is the city that offers world class food and wine at easy to digest prices.
In the coming months we will be advising our Themes and Symposia, Outreach activities and announcing the full committee.
The Goldschmidt ConferenceTM is the premiere international conference on geochemistry. It is owned jointly by the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry.
The 26th Goldschmidt Conference will be in Yokohama, Japan on 26th June to the 1st of July. We welcome scientists from all around the world to join us for what will be an exciting conference covering all aspects of geochemistry and related fields. Yokohama is easily accessible: it is just 30 minutes from Tokyo by train. Both Haneda and Narita airports have frequent and convenient public transport links to Yokohama making it simple to reach from any major international airport. An international program committee will ensure that the key advances in all our disciplines will be presented. We hope you will join us in 2016.
