Invitation to Submit

Abstracts are invited for the SEG 2023 Conference to be held in London, UK. Details on the scope of the technical program are provided on the conference themes page. All oral and poster presenters must present on site in London.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the technical committee, and decisions will be based on relevance and content, with final format (oral/poster) and theme assignment at the reviewers' discretion. Contributors are limited to submitting two abstracts per presenter (one for the oral 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 2023 Conference Proceedings. Notice of acceptance will be sent by May 1, 2023.

Final acceptance and publication require that the presenter register by the registration deadline, June 30, 2023. SEG Student Member presenters must also register by this date to receive funding.

Thank you and we look forward to reviewing your submissions!
