The EAGE would like to extend a warm invitation to you to come to Amsterdam, where our 2001 annual Conference and Exhibition will be held. And a special Conference it will be, as it marks the 50th anniversary of the Association! In 1951 the European Association of Exploration Geophysicists was founded in The Hague and formed the basis for the EAGE as we know it today. Those 50 years have seen many significant developments in our profession, in the industry and in the Association itself.
The Conference in Amsterdam will be a special celebration and a golden opportunity to reflect on the past, the present and the future of the Geosciences, to meet old friends and to make new contacts. The attraction of Amsterdam is well known and we are already planning a programme that will make it one of the most memorable Conferences you have ever attended.

Technical Programme

The technical Programme of Amsterdam 2001 will provide a unique opportunity to bring yourself up to date with all the technology developments in the Geosciences and related Engineering fields. Oral presentations will take place in six parallel sessions, and the programme will also offer a wide range of poster presentations, commercial presentations, short courses, field trips and workshops.

The workshops will provide a forum for presenting and discussing a variety of views on topics of current interest. We envisage these to cover Society's Acceptance of E&P Activities, Environmental Geophyscis, Downhole Geophysics, Magneto-Tellurics, Best Practices in Reserve Estimation and Gas Hydrates and Geoscience Education and Research.
Other subjects can still be considered and if you would like to be involved or propose a workshop topic in addition, contact the EAGE Business Office.
