AAPG SWS Annual Convention

All events will be hosted by the Roswell Geological Society at the
Inn of the Mountain Gods. Events will include a field trip June 4, a short course, golf
tournament, and ice breaker evening, a convention room with booth exhibits, five speaker
sessions, a poster session, two All Convention luncheons, an entertainment night, and of
course much fun in the cool White mountains. What we really need to make this
convention memorable are good talks. We will be having six sessions: General
Geology of the SW Section, Development of Shale Plays in the SW Section,
Horizontal Case Studies, 3D Seismic Case Studies, Frontier Geology and Emerging
Plays, and a Poster Session that can entail talks of any nature. At this convention, in
addition to recognizing the best Paper at the SWS convention, we will also have an award
for best talk of each session to be awarded at the All Convention Luncheon on the second
day. Talks will be 20 minutes with up to 10 minutes for questions between talks. We will
have a CD of all papers submitted, but an abstract will also suffice. Mainly we want to
hear what different people are doing in the various areas of the SW Section during these
exciting times. Recent technological advances really have caused a Renaissance of the
Southwest! Please consider giving a talk. For more information please contact
