Call for Abstracts Opening Soon

Now is the time to share your knowledge, insights, and research to help guide our geosciences community to expand frontiers and unlock resources for future generations.

In Europe, the Energy Transition is happening all around us, and the speed of change is accelerating. The key roles geoscientists will play in achieving net-zero have never been so clear.

The Technical Program Committee invites you to submit abstracts under the following themes/subthemes that have direct application to today’s industry and towards finding solutions to the Energy Trilemma: affordability, security, and impact. In addition, student participation is a priority — AAPG ICE is an invaluable opportunity to showcase graduate research that advances the industry.
