The information below is for archival purposes only.

Abstracts are invited for the SEG 2022 Conference to be held virtually and in Denver, depending on health and safety considerations. Details on the scope of the technical program are provided on the conference themes page.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the technical committee, and decisions will be based on relevance and content, with final format (oral / speed talk / poster) and theme assignment at the reviewers' discretion. Contributors are limited to submitting two abstracts per presenter (one for the oral or speed talk sessions, and one for posters), although an individual may be listed as a co-author for another presenter's abstract. For those who present, their abstracts will be published publicly in the online SEG 2022 Conference Proceedings. Notice of preliminary acceptance will be sent by May 12, 2022.

Final acceptance and publication require that the presenter register by the presenter conference registration deadline, June 30, 2022. SEG Student Members must also register by this date to receive funding.

Thank you and we look forward to reviewing your submissions!
