81st EAGE Conference & Exhibition 2019
Embrace Change - Creativity for the Future
The 81st EAGE Conference and Exhibition will be held at the ExCeL Centre in London, 3-6 June 2019. The EAGE conference always provides a fantastic venue for geoscientists and engineers to meet and find out about the latest developments across a wide range of themes,
activities and industries. I’m sure London 2019 will not disappoint.
The Local Advisory Committee is working closely with the EAGE to help shape the conference to be relevant to today’s opportunities and challenges. Our theme is “Embracing change – creativity for the future”. This reflects the changes that are occurring in the world and our role as geoscientists and engineers in helping to solve some of the big questions of our time. The world is demanding more energy and raw materials, whilst at the same time, also daily life and driving a revolution in how work is done across all industries. In some countries, the energy and extractive sectors are facing a challenge to attract and
retain the best talent.
As part of the opening ceremony, we will be debating the question of ‘what will the oil and gas industry look like in 2030?’
This will be followed over the next days with three forums, where all delegates are invited to listen and participate. Thought leaders and practitioners will discuss some of the big questions facing us:
- EAGE Forum Session 1: Delivering the World’s Low Carbon Energy Needs
- EAGE Forum Session 2: The Roles of Geoscientists and Engineers in the Changing Energy and Technology Landscape.
- EAGE Forum Session 3: New Technologies for Geoscience and Engineering
The fundamental understanding and application of science continues to be developed and innovated. EAGE 2019 will, as ever, showcase a world class
technical programme. A rich student programme is being planned where participants will be challenged to ‘think outside the screen’. Events will include interview coaching and a virtual reality experience. The ‘Laurie Dake Challenge’ will return – teams can test their skills developing (virtually) a UK oil field.
If you’re interested in attending a workshop we have a broad range of options to choose from. And finally, three field trips will be open to all participants – including students.
If you’re willing to get involved either by technical submission, session chair or volunteering your time to review abstracts then please visit the EAGE website for more information.
On behalf of the Local Advisory Committee, I look forward to welcoming you to the ExCeL Centre in London next June.
