Ushering in the New Age of Microlensing from Space: 21st International Microlensing Conference
ID
803826
Start date
01 Feb 2017
Location
Pasadena, California, United States
Abstract
We happily invite the exoplanet community to the 21st International Microlensing Conference entitled "Ushering in the New Age of Microlensing from Space". The field of gravitational microlensing is burgeoning, in particular due to the success of several space-spaced missions. We will highlight breaking results from K2's Campaign 9 ( K2C9 ), which constitutes the first combined ground- and space-based microlensing survey, as well as progress in Spitzer's program of obtaining "satellite parallaxes." Talks on ground-based surveys and advances in theory will also be featured prominently. Finally, we will have a number of talks on the revolutionary promise of the WFIRST mission for exoplanet science, which was recently approved to enter Phase A. Together these endeavors provide invaluable insight into topics such as the Galactic distribution of exoplanets, the abundance of free-floating planets, and the demographics of cold exoplanets.

Association of Petroleum Geologists Annual Convention and Exhibition 2017
ID
667127
Dates
02 Apr 2017 - 05 Apr 2017
Location
Houston, United States
Abstract
As a preeminent international geological organization, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) is uniquely positioned to attract a focused audience of geosciences professionals. The technical program at ACE attracts industry leaders worldwide for its well-regarded oral and poster presentations. AAPG has more than 34,000 members ranging from geologists and company leaders to students and young professionals. Many of our members have been involved for most of their careers. ACE is a world-class event, regularly attracting an average of 6,900 global attendees from 78 countries over the last five years. The breadth and depth of the technical program is international in scope and appeals to multiple geosciences disciplines. ACE also boasts the AAPG Global Gateway and International Pavilion, a place where exploration and investment professionals gather. It is the place to see, discuss and understand where our industry is headed.

Workshop III: Data Assimilation, Uncertainty Reduction, and Optimization for Subsurface Flow
ID
832067
Dates
22 May 2017 - 26 May 2017
Location
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Abstract
There are major computational challenges and substantial uncertainties associated with model inversion and performance optimization in oil field applications. As production and (in some cases) 4D seismic and electromagnetic data are collected, there are inevitably discrepancies between the predicted and actual reservoir responses. This drives the need for data assimilation, usually referred to as history matching in petroleum engineering. History matching involves the solution of a computationally demanding, highly ill-conditioned, inverse problem. Key complications that arise are the uncertain nature of the geology (and thus the need to "properly" sample the posterior distribution), combined with the need to retain geological realism in history-matched reservoir descriptions. Additional complexity enters as a result of the unknown rock-physics quantities needed to integrate multiphysics data sets. Applications received by Monday, March 27, 2017, will receive fullest consideration.

Habitable Worlds 2017: A System Science Workshop
ID
847624
Start date
13 Nov 2017
Location
Laramie, Wy, United States
Abstract
The Nexus for Exoplanet System Science (NExSS), a NASA research coordination network dedicated to the study of planetary habitability, is pleased to announce a five-day conference on "Habitable Worlds 2017: A System Science Workshop" from Nov 13-17, 2017 in Laramie, WY. The field of exoplanets is currently at the cusp of a watershed moment in finding life on other worlds, propelled by the discoveries of habitable zone terrestrial planets in both ground and space-based surveys, and the potential for future telescopes to characterize the atmospheres of some of these rocky planets. Preparing for such a singular moment needs a diverse community, including Earth scientists, heliophysicists, planetary scientists, and astrophysicists.
