Convention registration is live!



A Note from the Convention Co-Chair:

We are very excited to host the 2020 Pacific Section AAPG Convention in Oxnard, California at the beautiful Embassy Suites Convention Center at the Mandalay Beach Resort. Our host is the Coast Geological Society along with our Pacific Section SEPM, and Pacific Coast Section SEG partners.

As we work towards a future of energy sustainability with environmental responsibilities, we see a theme that will bring all of us together. "2020 Vision: Producing The Future." The convention committee is excited to bring together a technical program, field trips, and short courses that will appeal to every earth scientist. We look forward to seeing you in 2020!

A Note from the Convention Co-Chair:

This year’s convention was planned to pique interest and appeal to a broad range of geologic disciplines. The petroleum industry is increasingly becoming an interdisciplinary field and is subject to many changes over a geologist’s career. The technical program promotes inter-department collaborations to help geologists prepare for the changes in the petroleum industry. Special events, such as extended lectures and a session on qualifying as a Professional Geologist in California, are designed to guide students and young professionals on their future in the petroleum industry and beyond!

Student registration has been reduced thanks to a generous anonymous donation. This donation has allowed us to reduce the cost for students lower than last year’s convention!

We are fortunate to have Dr. Mike Malaska from the Planetary Ices Group at NASA/JPL as the presenter for the All-Convention Luncheon. Dr. Malaska’s talk, “Exploration of Saturn’s moon Titan: A hydrocarbon world in our Solar System”, will explore the recently released geomorphological map of Titan and how the map is being used to explore the geologic processes on Saturn’s largest moon.

Please join us in Oxnard for a convention that promotes the science that gives us the tools to explore the world around us!
