Call for Sessions

Deadline for Session Proposal Submission: Thursday, 23 January 2020

We are inviting you to submit session proposals for GeoUtrecht 2020. In suggesting a session, you are requested

  • to provide a title, a list of minimum 2 conveners and contact information, and a short description of the session topics (max. 300 words).
  • to select the appropriate theme for this session and – in case you have already an idea –
  • to suggest a session keynote.

A travel expense support for session keynotes is planned but if and to which amount can unfortunately not be ensured at the present time yet.

The account that you have to create for your session proposal might be re-used later for submitting an abstract or for your online registration (both are not open yet).

'Applications in 3D Geological Modelling'by Rouwen Lehne (1) & Michiel van der Meulen (2); 1: HLNUG Geological Survey of Hesse, DE, 2: TNO Geological Survey of the Netherlands, NL Over the last decades, 3D geological modelling has become a standard in hydrocarbon exploration and production, has been adopted and is developing towards a systematic effort by geological surveys, and is on the verge of being able to properly handle the structurally complex settings in which the mining sector operates. New, exciting possibilities are arising and new application domains are opening up, which challenges geomodellers to integrate data and methods from different domains (e.g. remote-sensed and subsurface data), and to deliver integrated content (e.g. urban underground infrastructure and geology). In this process, several hurdles must be overcome, i.e., developing standards, harmonization, integration of data, storing and sharing content in a structured manner, and developing services. In the process challenges are manifold, and so are the solutions.This session therefore is looking for contributions addressing the wide field of geological 3D-modelling and associated topics such as data modelling & data storage and sharing systems. We especially encourage the younger generation to present and are glad to announce a special block within the session that is dedicated to honor selected student degree theses and reward them with a cash prize.
