II Edition - October 4th - 5th, 2017 - Convento S. Maria De Plano - Calvello (Pz - Italy)


The PETROLEUM GEOLOGY STUDENT CONTEST is a great opportunity for Ph.D. students to show the results of their research to an audience of academic, industrial and professional geologists. The best student presentations will be awarded with two grants of 5,000 Euro grant, kindly funded by Shell Italia E&P.



The 2nd edition of the PETROLEUM GEOLOGY STUDENT CONTEST will be held the October 4th and 5th 2017, in the beautiful town of Calvello (Potenza), in the heart of the woods of the Basilicata Region of Italy.
The workshop is aimed at offering the opportunity to eight PhD students and eight MSc students currently enrolled at the University, or who have just terminated their studies within the last year, to show the results of their research to an audience of academic and industrial geologists. Original research works dealing with the several aspects of petroleum geology, such as geodynamics, regional geology, basin analysis, sequence stratigraphy, applied sedimentology, structural geology, seismic data acquisition, outcrop analogues, processing and interpretation, petrophysics, rock physics, reservoir modelling, fluid flow simulation, geochemistry, mineralogy, etc. are welcome.
In order to participate, PhD. and MSc students must submit an abstract not longer than 3,000 characters (besides title and author name).
All abstracts will be published in a volume of the Abstract Book of the ITALIAN GEOLOGICAL SOCIETY. The deadline for abstract submission is July 31st 2017.
The eight selected PhD students will provide a 25 minute-long oral presentation, whereas the selected MSc students will deliver a poster presentation (700 x 1,000 mm).
The reunion will open with a keynote lecture presented by Carlos Pirmez, Chief Geologist at Shell Italia E&P. Based upon the evaluation of the judging committee, the best PhD and MSc student presentations will be awarded with two grants of 5,000 Euro and 2,000 Euro, respectively, funded by Shell Italia E&P. All room & boarding expenses for the presenters will also be kindly offered by the sponsor.
Registration is free.
Further information will be available in a forthcoming circular, which will include details on logistics, accommodation and workshop agenda.
The whole geological community is invited to attend the workshop, looking forward a stimulating chance to appreciate the state of the art of the research in the Petroleum Geoscience field provided by young scientists.

Looking forward to seeing you in Calvello,
Fabrizio Agosta & Sergio Longhitano
