Greetings! The online CSPG Core Conference is coming up June 17th and 18th 2021.  Our premier rock focused event will showcase technical work from our geoscience community in a relaxed and collaborative environment.  This year we are excited to present the theme ‘Breaking Barriers in a Changing World’.  The conference will include core presentations from the best university researchers across Canada, oil and gas technical experts, and renewable energy scientists.  

The conference is an excellent venue to bring together members of Canada’s geoscience community. This year we are incorporating features to make the digital component of the conference replicate elements of the live conference as much as possible.  New for this year, we will be planning breakout rooms where viewers can zoom in and scroll through the core images to focus on details, all while on live audio calls with the presenters and participants in the room.  

If regulations permit, we will catch up with old friends and be introduced to new faces that represent the future of our industry, at an outdoor social event.  

Excellent abstracts have been submitted and the committee is currently sorting through the topics.  At this point in time, we can highlight that themes will include sedimentology, ichnology and petrophysics with discussions on emerging play types that have the potential to move the industry forward for decades to come.  There will be core from outside Alberta and even outside the country presented.  Here in one spot we will have opportunity to look at hundreds of meters of core and to interact with top notch Canadian presenters.  

Stay tuned for more details!
