Dates:        26-30 June, 2017
Location:   University of Texas, Commons Learning Center and BEG Core Facility
City:           Austin, TX, USA
Abstract Submission is now closed
Deadline for Abstract Submission: Extended January 31, 2017
The 2017 Mountjoy Conference, sponsored by SEPM (Society for Sedimentary Geology) and CSPG (Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists), at the University of Texas Learning Commons and the Bureau of Economic Geology Core facility.
The theme is “Characterization and Modeling of Carbonate Pore Systems,” and the conference will showcase new approaches and results through oral and poster sessions as well as core workshops and fieldtrips.
The theme is broad, encompassing the:
   • stratigraphic, facies and diagenetic influences on varied pore systems;
   • petrographic, geochemical and visualization tools applied to enhanced
      characterization of pore systems, from nano- and micro-scale, to fractures
      and cavernous pores; and
   • new approaches for modeling the origin and distribution of pore systems.
Integrated case studies from academia and industry are of particular interest.
One of the highlights of the 1st Mountjoy meeting in 2015 was the opportunity for individual discussion and interaction between the attendees and the presenters. The 2017 Mountjoy Conference will continue to stress the importance of dedicated time for discussion and one-on-one networking throughout the program.
