About the conference

The GEO conference is the largest geosciences technical programme in the Middle East.

It is organised and developed by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG).  Additionally, GEO is fully supported by the Dhahran Geoscience Society (DGS), the Bahrain Geoscience Society (BGS), the Geological Society of Oman (GSO), Emirates Society of Geoscientists (ESG) and the Qatar Geological Society in cooperation with a committee of national and international oil company representatives.

This combination of local and international expertise ensures that the programme is highly technical with leading edge science brought together from around the world mixed with local knowledge from the region’s leading geoscientists.

In addition to the technical programme, there will be senior level panel discussions, extensive poster presentations, workshops and field trips designed to offer participants further opportunities to learn and integrate.
