Basins Workshop 2020 – From Isolation to Innovation
Thursday, 3 December - Friday, 4 December (Australia/Perth time)
Having paused the Basins Workshops in 2019 to accommodate the AEGC meeting in Perth, we look forward to resuming in 2020, acknowledging that we now face different constraints and uncertainties resulting from Covid-19.
The workshop will be running on Thursday 3 and Friday 4 December 2020 and will be held at the offices of the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (100 Plain Street East Perth), subject to prevailing health advice and restrictions imposed by State and Federal Governments. We also acknowledge that travel may be difficult or impossible for interstate and international participants, so we envisage a hybrid meeting involving both in person and on-line contributions.
In keeping with the theme of Isolation to Innovation, we invite Expressions of Interest from those who would like to make a presentation on any innovative ideas, methodologies or workflows applied to Australian sedimentary basins, or suitable analogues. What have you learnt from new methods of working during periods of isolation? What new ideas or new techniques have you been able to develop? What amazing insights have you had working in the privacy of your home office?
Please send the title of your proposed presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 September 2020 and indicate how you would like to make your presentation:
- In-person, presenting only to those in physical attendance
- Online from a remote location, presenting to all physical and online attendees
- Both in-person and on-line, presenting to all physical and online attendees
Our aim is to retain as far as possible the original spirit of these meetings – informal, at no cost to participants and without any requirements for written abstracts or papers, in an environment that promotes open exchange of ideas and discussion while respecting the confidentiality of the ideas discussed. To this end, presentations will be 10 minutes in duration, with 5 minutes for discussion, facilitated by online discussion platforms.
Once we have a better idea of the number and style of presentations, we will provide more information on the methods of participation.
