Multiscale Imaging for Reservoir Optimization

The Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists and the Denver Well Logging Society are teaming up again to present the 2019 Fall Symposium on October 22, 2019 at the Sheraton Denver West! The technical program will be organized topically and will attempt to provide cross-disciplinary collaboration between our two societies. 

Students! We have a limited number of discounted student registrations at $150. To register, please fill out this registration form and return it to the RMAG office along with a copy of your current student ID.

Event Details:

  • Member early bird pricing: RMAG and DWLS members pay $225 ($50 off non-member price) through October 1st. After October 1st, member price increases to $250.
  • DWLS Members: To register at the member price, please either call the RMAG office (800-970-7624) or fill out this registration form and return it to the RMAG office.
  • Food: Registration includes a light breakfast and catered lunch. A reception will follow the talks.
