Technical Programme

The Technical Programme of the EAGE Annual 2023 and SPE EuropEC combines a diversity of topics with a high-quality unique to EAGE programmes.

Join us for another fantastic Vienna edition of our world-class event, which strives to set the bar for the advancement of knowledge in the complex and wide fields of Geoscience and Engineering.

The technical programme for EAGE Annual 2023 recognises the increasing attention for Energy Transition and Renewable Resources. Therefore all topics related to the Energy Transition are now gathered in one theme in the call for abstracts, and will be clearly present in the technical programme. The total spectrum of topics reflects the broad subsurface composition in the EAGE: ranging from geophysics and geology, to infrastructure and reservoir engineering, integrated subsurface cases and energy transition.

The deadline for abstract submission is 15 January 2023.

Submission Instructions

Anti-Plagiarism Statement
EAGE invites the presentation of new and original material in a range of multi-disciplinary topics in Geoscience and Engineering. The EAGE takes plagiarism very seriously. Therefore, if an extended abstract or paper, after careful review, examination and consideration, is rejected on the basis of plagiarism, ALL authors of the abstract/paper will be denied the opportunity for further abstract submissions for the following three years. Note that this means that NO abstracts/papers from ANY of the authors (as author or co-author on subsequent papers) will be accepted for ANY EAGE event (Annual Meeting or Workshop) for a period of three years starting on the date of the event for which the paper was originally submitted.

Layout of Extended Abstract
Titles should be relevant and short (max. 16 words allowed, ‘ – ‘ is considered one (1) word). This title must be included on the first page of the extended abstract (first page only).

Extended abstracts must be in English, original and not have appeared in any other publication.

The body of the extended abstract needs to be four (4) full pages in length, paper size A4. Longer or shorter sized abstracts will not be included in the review process and consequently be rejected. The extended abstract should consist of text and appropriate figures supporting the key message. The text should contain at least one figure and references. Four pages of text alone are unacceptable.

Please do not use more than 1 column for text, do not frame the text, and please upload the body of your extended abstract as one document with embedded figures.
Smaller figures may be placed in 2 columns. The caption of these figures may be placed in 2 columns as well but may also be placed in 1 column (alignment justified).

A good extended abstract set in the conference template consists of an introduction, the main description of theory or method broken down as appropriate and illustrated with figures, conclusions, optional acknowledgements and references. It should reflect work that is actually completed at the time of submission and not plans or ideas that are still taking shape in the mind of the author or research that is still highly immature.

The extended abstract must concentrate in itself the essential information of the presentation: purpose, methods, results and conclusions. It should be an abbreviated, informative, accurate representation of the presentation and not a mere recital of the subjects to be covered.

Template usage Extended Abstract
• 4 full pages, A4 size;
• Do not modify header, footer or font size of the template;
• The presentation title must be included on the first page of the extended abstract (title only, no authors or affiliations!);
• Summary, authors and affiliations may not be included in the extended abstract;
• Use font ‘Times New Roman 11pts’ with single line space and use the standard Word outline level (body text);
• Start the body text of your extended abstract directly under the event logo;
• NO additional empty lines to fill up the page;
• Margins 2.54cm on all sides (1”);
• Including at least 1 graphic/figure;
• Including references;
• Save as or print to PDF; ensure that the PDF-paper size is A4 as Letter format is not allowed.
• Please make sure that in the final result the header and footer remain unchanged and no text or graphics are added;

To check if the printed PDF-paper size is still A4, please check that the page size equals 8.26 x 11.69 “ (± 0.01”) or 210 x 297 mm.
The complete list of requirements is included in the mandatory conference template.
The lay-out of the references should be consistent with the style guide for references in the First Break guidance for authors. Please ensure every citation has a reference and vice versa.

Number the figures sequentially, according to their appearance in the text, and check that each figure is cited in the text.

Supply a short caption for each figure; more detailed discussion of the figure can be reserved for the text. Further information about the use of figure captions and figure numbering can be found in the First Break guidance for authors.

Example of an extended abstract [PDF:438KB], by courtesy of G.D. Wach. Kindly note that this example does not include the mandatory cover page.

Uploading your abstract 
Your extended abstract will be uploaded in several steps using the online submission module. The uploaded extended abstract must be in PDF, other formats are not allowed. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate submissions or revisions via email.

Submission deadline for the Technical Programme
Please note that the submission deadline is 15 January 2023, 23:59 (CET). The portal will close automatically after this deadline.

Changes after the submission deadline
Please note that it is not possible to make changes to the submission information (e.g. add or delete co-authors) or the uploaded extended abstract after the submission deadline (15 January 2023, 23:59 CET).

It is possible to change the presenter to one of the co-authors.

Selection Process
The Selection Committee will consider all extended abstracts submitted via the portal and included in the review process. Authors will be notified by mid March 2023. The technical programme selection meeting has then taken place and the technical programme with definite session titles and presentation allocation is composed.

Each extended abstract will be reviewed by at least 2 referees prior to the technical programme selection meeting. The selection process is no formality, on average 2 out of every 5 submitted extended abstracts is rejected.
Please note that the results of the review process and the selection meeting are final and correspondence on them will not be possible.

The extended abstracts must be relevant to one of the conference topics. Authors are required to indicate the topic under which their extended abstract should be evaluated by the referees. Authors should also indicate their preference for either an oral or a poster presentation; certain material is more suitable for poster presentations, due to the details that need to be studied and discussed in more depth.

Oral and poster presentations are treated equally.

Publication 
The accepted extended abstract is published on EarthDoc, which is an official EAGE publications, as submitted. Badly written extended abstracts not only reflect poorly on the authors, but also on the association. Many more people read the accepted extended abstracts than those attending the presentation. Therefore, EAGE will only consider properly written and informative extended abstracts that are submitted in line with the template instructions.

Authors are encouraged to submit their material for publication in one of the journals of the association. Acceptance for the conference does not guarantee acceptance for publication in one of the journals.

Please note that EAGE cannot make any contributions toward coverage of expenses relating to the presentation.

If you have to withdraw your presentation, please do so as soon as possible via the online response.

Kindly note that if you withdraw your presentation, the related extended abstract will not be uploaded to EarthDoc or, when uploaded before your withdrawal, it will be removed from the database.

Please note that the deadline to withdraw your presentation without consequences is 15 April 2023, 23:59 (CEST).

Withdrawal after deadline

If you withdraw your presentation after 15 April 2023 (23:59, CEST), you will be listed as no-show and you risk to be banned as a speaker at EAGE event until 3 years after the conference.

After this deadline it is still possible to list a co-author as replacement presenter. Kindly use the online response form to inform EAGE about the replacement presenter.

The programme for Association and Cooperation in Earth Sciences (PACE) is funded by EAGE and supports individual geoscientists to participate actively in selected EAGE events. This support is available for accepted speakers who cannot obtain financial support from other sources.

Call for Reviewers and Chairpersons

The reviewing and evaluation of abstract is essential to assure the success and quality of the Technical Programme. 

The members of the Technical Programme Selection meeting use the review scores and comments from the reviewers to create the programme.

During the conference the technical sessions preferably have two co-chairs. We depend on the session (co-)chairs to guide and manage the sessions, help with the Q&A, promote on topic conversation/debate and keep track of time.

EAGE would like to invite you to review papers before the event and/or chair sessions during the event. By sending an email to abstracts@eage.org. Please include a short resumé in your email. If you do not have one, please feel free to use this template.

 

Criteria (reviewer and/or session chair):
It will be helpful if you include the following items in your CV/resumé:

  • The number of years of academic and work experience;
  • If you have presented at an international conference (for example EAGE’s Annual);
  • A list of publications in your name;
  • If you have chaired or reviewed for other EAGE events or journals before.
 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and we look forward to welcoming you to EAGE’s Annual event.

Advice by EAGE experts

Chairing is a key element contributing to the success of a presentation, as well as to a productive scientific exchange. 

We have interviewed a group of EAGE experts and asked them for their tips and tricks for chairing a good session. All video interviews are available on our LearningGeoscience platform.

Dr Cédric John (Imperial College London)
Dr Jan H. van de Mortel (Independent)

The term ‘Artificial Intelligence’ or ‘AI’ is generally used to refer to the combined fields of data science, machine learning and deep learning.

Although there is no ‘Intelligent machine’ yet, AI has revolutionised industries around the world, including in the geosciences and in energy companies. This highlight session will showcase a range of invited speakers from both industry and academia.

The session has two main objectives:

the first objective is to demonstrate how AI is currently impacting our industry, and how. This can include for instance routine application of unsupervised learning to seismic volume in order to extract meaningful attributes, use of computer vision to automate thin section and core analysis, automatic interpretation of logging data using machine learning, and applications of natural language processing to facilitate text extraction and analysis.

The second objective is to look towards the future of AI in our field. Invited speakers will cover emerging technologies such as the use of physics informed neural networks (PINN), process-based modelling using deep learning, applications of transformers in image and geologic time series analysis, efforts to develop interpretable deep learning models, and improved solver to speed up and stabilize network learning.

The invited expert speakers will be encouraged to address the following overarching questions: What is the potential of each technique? Is AI in its current form likely to stay? What are the promises and potential danger of future applications and algorithms?

8.02 Energy Transition Technologies Powering Progress towards a Net Zero Future

Mr Benjamin Bellwald (Volcanic Basin Petroleum Research A.S.)
Ms Carla Martín Clavé (Jacobs)
Mr Augusto Correnti (Shell)

Efforts in energy transition and decarbonization are of the utmost urgency, and measures should be taken with immediate effect.

In this dedicated session we welcome contributions about technologies with the potential to significantly power a net zero future. The session covers technological solutions focusing on shallow and deep subsurface and beyond, spanning from offshore wind to carbon capture and storage including hydrogen and geothermal energy solutions.

The implications related to the decisions made during the climate conference in Glasgow (COP26) will further be discussed during this dedicated session.

8.03 Petroleum Systems of Mediterranean Sea

Dr Jean-Jacques Biteau (Independent)
Dr Axel Wenke (Equinor ASA)

This session will focus on different types of Petroleum Systems of the Mediterranean Sea and adjacent areas

8.04 Present and Future In Seismic Interpretation

Mr Rutger Gras (Independent)
Dr Cyrille Reiser (PGS)

The present-day practice of seismic interpretation and reservoir geoscience is rapidly evolving under the influence of technical and energy industry drivers.

On one hand the technology that enables seismic interpretation, and other related activities such as rock physics, seismic inversion, is rapidly moving forward: increasingly sophisticated acquisition and processing-imaging, quantitative interpretation, 3D-volume-based techniques, integration into workflows, open source tools and cloud-enabled computing leave a strong imprint on the day-to-day working practice of the end-user geoscientist.

On the other hand the accelerated transition from fossil energy to renewables since the 2020 watershed triggered a revolution and a crew change that challenges the traditional geophysical practice: the interpretation and subsurface understanding task remains, but the demands and constraints by the stakeholders are often radically different.

The Seismic Interpretation dedicated session in Madrid explores these trends and attempts to trace the trajectory going forward in the years to come.

8.05 Current Trends in Mineral Exploration Geophysics

Dr Deyan Draganov (TU Delft)

This dedicated session will present current trends in mining exploration geophysics using different methods, e.g. seismic, electric, electromagnetic, gravity.

Both passive-source and active-source exploration methods are targeted. The latter is especially important for seismic exploration as passive sources would allow minimizing the environmental impact.

The programme for Association and Cooperation in Earth Sciences (PACE) is funded by EAGE and supports individual geoscientists to participate actively in selected EAGE events. This support is available for accepted speakers who cannot obtain financial support from other sources. With the PACE programme, EAGE strives to encourage the exchange of information and knowledge among the global geoscientific community.

COVID-19 Update

In view of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and the current restrictions related to (international) travel and governmental policies, we would like to inform the grant applicants that, if granted, the PACE support will be limited to registration fee waivers only.

As we continue to monitor the development of the situation worldwide and its impact on our scheduled events, we will update this page. In the meantime, we advise you to follow our general coronavirus advisory.

Eligibility

In order to qualify for PACE support, please take the following criteria into consideration:

  • Only presenters of accepted oral and/or poster presentations who cannot obtain financial support given by their university / institute or other resources will be eligible to receive a grant.
  • A person will only be considered for a financial support once every two years.
  • Only EAGE members will be eligible to receive a grant. You can renew or apply your membership here.
  • Speakers / presenters need to submit their own abstract through their own account before applying for a grant.

Application & selection process

The grant application is now closed. The deadline to submit an application was 28 February 2023

Applications received after the deadline will not be considered. The results will be communicated to all early April 2023 via email.

The PACE support is coordinated by the PACE Committee. Please note that PACE is a support, but not a full reimbursement of costs.  

For further information on the selection criteria, please see here. For questions regarding grants you can contact us at grants@eage.org.

A good oral presentation has a clear objective, a well-defined structure and uses clear and simple illustrations.

An e-poster presentation is an ideal medium for an informal exchange of ideas and for discussions between participants.

The EAGE believes that e-poster presentations are equal in importance to oral presentations.

 

The templates for your presentation(s)

Please use the following links to download:

  • The mandatory Template for orals for your oral presentation(s);
  • The mandatory “Template for posters” for your poster presentation(s) will be available shortly (mid March at the latest).

If you will give your presentation on your own merit (see acceptance email), please use the following link to download:

  • The revised mandatory Template – on your own merit for your oral presentation(s);
  • The revised mandatory “Template – on your own merit” for your poster presentation(s) will be available shortly (mid March at the latest).
 
 
Objective & Structure
 
Your objective defines what you wish to achieve with your presentation. To achieve a realistic objective you must consider the characteristics of your audience: their motives for attending your presentation, their interests, their knowledge level and their intentions.

The structure of a good presentation is as follows:

  • Define the subject, give a general outline and state the goals of your presentation in your introduction.
  • Work out your presentation in more detail.
  • Summarise and draw conclusions, which refer back to your introduction.

Please be very careful that  your presentation is scientific and not commercial. In addition, the company logo or trademarks are allowed only in the first and on the last page of the power point slides (videos and oral presentations) or in small size on the e-poster.

We recommend you to make an overview with the estimated timing of your presentation and to prepare yourself for questions from the audience. Rehearsal of your presentation is strongly recommended! Please note that presenting to a live audience can take a little longer than during a rehearsal.

It is important to adhere to the time schedule: 20 minutes in total per presentation (15 minutes speaking time and 5 minutes question time).

 

In-person presentations

Generally, audience’s attention is high at the beginning of an oral presentation, will decrease and is at its worst about two thirds of the way through. When you reach the conclusion, their attention will increase again. You can help your audience to concentrate by restricting detail to a minimum, using variety in visual aids and tone of voice, maintaining eye contact and by summarising frequently.

To have a successful e-poster presentation, make sure your e-poster is attractive, well laid out and largely self-explanatory. The explanation of your e-poster should complement your visual display.

In order to be able to present in any session (in person or pre-recorded), all speakers in the technical programme must be registered for the conference.

Submit the online response form by as soon as possible to:

  1. Confirm the name of the presenter;
  2. Inform us of the replacement presenter;
  3. Withdraw your presentation (deadline 15 April 2022, 23:59 CEST).


Additional information on the mentioned options is listed below.

Use the form to:

  1. Confirm the name of the presenter
    When the name of the presenter is confirmed, they will be listed as a ‘Confirmed speaker’. In the registration process this is checked to calculate the correct registration fee for presenters.
    As soon as the form has been processed, you will receive an automated notification to confirm that you the system will then recognize you as ‘Confirmed speaker’.

  2. Inform us of the co-author who will replace you as presenter
    If a co-author will give the presentation, the submission needs to be moved to their account. To do so, we need the name and email address of the co-author. Please keep in mind that the email address that you mention and the login name used by the co-author to access the EAGE website need to be the same.
    If the co-author does not have an account yet, they need to create one on the EAGE website.

  3. Withdraw your presentation
    If you have to withdraw your presentation, please keep in mind to do so by 15 April 2022 (23:59 CEST) at the latest. If you have to withdraw your presentation after this date, you risk being banned as a speaker for EAGE events for 3 years (see also the Presentation Cancellation Policy).

Presentation format

The conference will be organised as an in person event with hybrid elements.

You are presumed to present in person in Madrid. A pre-recorded presentation video (15 minutes, in video format, mp4 preferred) is requested from all presenters in the technical programme.
If you are not allowed to pre-record your presentation and you cannot join us in Madrid unexpectedly, you risk being banned as a speaker at EAGE events for 3 years.

If you have changed your preferred attendance to online, a pre-recorded video presentation (15 minutes, in video format, mp4 is preferred) is mandatory. Without the pre-recorded video, your presentation will be excluded from the technical programme and you risk being disqualified as a speaker at EAGE events for 3 years.

If you are not allowed to travel the pre-recorded presentation option allows you to participate as a presenter in the technical programme.

Additional information on the videos (summary and presentation videos) is available on the presentation videos page.

N.B.

EAGE reserves the right at all times to make changes in the time schedule, dates, format (hybrid-in person – online), concept of the event.

Presentation video - in person event with online elements

If you are not allowed to travel or to attend the conference in person, this still allows you to present your work in the technical programme of the conference.

Please keep in mind that a pre-recorded video (max 15 minutes, in video format) is required for of all accepted presentations. It will not be possible to do the presentation online; the video will then be used.

Your presentation video will also be used if you unexpectedly cannot join us in Madrid at the last minute.

Prepare your presentation - template

Oral presentation: use the mandatory Template for Orals to prepare your oral presentation.

Poster presentation: use the mandatory Template for Posters to prepare your poster presentation (will be available by mid March 2022 at the latest).

If you have questions about the use of the template, please contact EAGE at abstracts@eage.org.

Please keep in mind that the focus of the presentations is the scientific content. It is not allowed to include your company logo or name on all slides of the template. It is allowed to include the company logo or name on the first and the last slide of the presentation (please also check the acceptance email, as important information is included there).

Pre-recorded video presentation

Pre-record your presentation. Keep in mind that if you include a frame of yourself, it will cover part of the screen and text and graphics will not be visible there.

Your presentation video should be:

  • Maximum 15 minutes presentation time, this leaves 5 minutes for Q&A;
  • Save the presentation using the paper number, your first name and last name:
    • “XXXX_FirstName_LastName”;
    • XXXX is the paper number (see acceptance email);
  • Save the file in video format (e.g. mp4, m4v, mkv, etc.). Preferred format is mp4. Please keep in mind that a powerpoint presentation with recorded audio is not a video format.

For example, the presentation for paper number 1 will be “1_EAGE_Abstracts”.

Premise

The presentation is important!

If your video looks good, you look good too and you make a better impression and have more impact on your audience.

Follow a few simple rules and apply certain “tricks” when recording your presentation. It will look more professional.

Preparation

  • Ensure the quality of both audio and video is good. For quality purposes, we recommend the use of a separate headset with integrated microphone;
  • Do an audio sound check before recording.
  • Output set to 1920 x 1080 full HD; if that is not possible, use the setting as close to this one as possible (720 HD);
  • Disable system messages and warnings, like e-mail notifications, skype messages, etc.;
  • When recording, limit the background noise (separate room/location);
  • Rehearse the presentation several times to check the duration of the presentations. Stick to the time limits:
    • Summary video: max 5 minutes;
    • Presentation video: max 15 minutes.
  • Speak clearly and not too quick;
  • Check if there is a delay between starting the recording (click the ‘Record’ button) and the recording of audio and video.

Recording the videos

  • Test the quality of both audio and video before recording;
  • Introduce yourself at the start of your presentation, including your name and the title of your presentation;
  • Do not speak too quickly;
  • Keep in mind that what you include in your video, will be available online.
  • If you also include a picture in picture recording of yourself in the presentation, please feel free to do so. Be aware that the frame of yourself will be covering a part of the presentation slides.
  • When including a picture in picture:
    • Be sure to be visible and well positioned as well as illuminated properly;
    • Be sure to have a source of light (windows, bulbs etc.) in front of you or slightly from the side;
    • Try to align your face parallel to the webcam.
  • If the laptop is too low you can place some books underneath to raise it a little, rather than tilting the screen.
  • Make sure only intended content is included in the presentation.
  • Summary time (5 minutes max) may not be exceeded. Use the time well to summarize your presentation video (no extensive introduction).

Check your video

View the presentation video on another device to check the quality of the recording (e.g. sound too soft / loud, level of background noise, etc.).

If you have to withdraw your presentation, please do so as soon as possible via the online response.

Kindly note that if you withdraw your presentation, the related extended abstract will not be uploaded to EarthDoc or, when uploaded before your withdrawal, it will be removed from the database.

Please note that the deadline to withdraw your presentation without consequences is 15 April 2023, 23:59 (CEST).

Withdrawal after deadline

If you withdraw your presentation after 15 April 2023 (23:59, CEST), you will be listed as no-show and you risk to be banned as a speaker at EAGE event until 3 years after the conference.

After this deadline it is still possible to list a co-author as replacement presenter. Kindly use the online response form to inform EAGE about the replacement presenter.

Call for Reviewers and Chairpersons

The reviewing and evaluation of abstract is essential to assure the success and quality of the Technical Programme. 

The members of the Technical Programme Selection meeting use the review scores and comments from the reviewers to create the programme.

During the conference the technical sessions preferably have two co-chairs. We depend on the session (co-)chairs to guide and manage the sessions, help with the Q&A, promote on topic conversation/debate and keep track of time.

EAGE would like to invite you to review papers before the event and/or chair sessions during the event. By sending an email to abstracts@eage.org. Please include a short resumé in your email. If you do not have one, please feel free to use this template.

 

Criteria (reviewer and/or session chair):
It will be helpful if you include the following items in your CV/resumé:

  • The number of years of academic and work experience;
  • If you have presented at an international conference (for example EAGE’s Annual);
  • A list of publications in your name;
  • If you have chaired or reviewed for other EAGE events or journals before.
 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and we look forward to welcoming you to EAGE’s Annual event.

Advice by EAGE experts

Chairing is a key element contributing to the success of a presentation, as well as to a productive scientific exchange. 

We have interviewed a group of EAGE experts and asked them for their tips and tricks for chairing a good session. All video interviews are available on our LearningGeoscience platform.
