Invitation to Submit

Abstracts are invited for the SEG 2024 Conference to be held in Windhoek, Namibia. 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 Windhoek, Namibia.

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.
