The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), and Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) are proud to announce the 1st MIDDLE EAST GEOSCIENCE STUDENT CONFERENCE which is scheduled to take place from 26 February to 1 March 2017 in Al Ain, UAE.
Building on the success of previous years’ Young Professionals and Students Summits held during the GEO Conference and Exhibition, the three societies have decided to join forces once more to bring to the region an exciting yearly event for geoscience students. The conference will rotate within the region in odd years and be held alongside the GEO Conference and Exhibition during even years. Over the years, each society has consistently made considerable contributions to support students and their respective universities and as we continue with raising our levels of cooperation, a natural progression is to do the same for our many student chapters and provide them with a definitive regional student conference.
The student conference will offer participants from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region a chance to compete in the prestigious and renowned AAPG Imperial Barrel Award Program, EAGE Geo-Quiz and SEG Challenge Bowl. Participating students will also be able to advance their existing knowledge, discuss opportunities, expand their horizons and share their expertise with their peers from different universities and with industry and academia professionals.
