CALL FOR ABSTRACTS – SCA Symposium 2020/2021
The 34th International Symposium of the Society of Core Analysts
Lakeway Resort and Spa, Austin, Texas, USA
September 20to September 23, 2021
From core to field: Boost the value of core data
The 34th annual SCA Symposium was originally planned for 2020. Due to the situation, it was postponed one year, and will be held at Lakeway Resort and Spa on Lake Travis just outside of Austin, Texas. Since the conference covers two years, it will include contributions from the delayed 2020 Symposium in addition to the contributions called for by this invitation. The conference will start with a Short Course “Whole core image data in petrophysical and reservoir engineering workflows” on the morning of September 20th, followed by 3½ days of technical sessions including oral and poster presentations. The SCA Technical Committee invites abstract submissions for oral presentations and posters for the following theme-related topics:
- From core to field: Boost the value of core data (whole core imaging, multi-scale integration through imaging, automation of work processes, etc.)
- Laboratory Core Analysis
- Improved SCAL Techniques and Interpretation
- Pore Scale Imaging and Modelling
- Displacement Mechanisms/EOR/IOR
- Unconventionals and shales
- Coring Operations
- Other (If your paper does not fit directly into any of the above then please suggest an alternative topic/theme)
Abstracts are due February 7th, 2021. Only abstracts submitted electronically at scaweb.org will be considered for this conference.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by March 14th, 2021. If you require any further information regarding the proposed technical topics/themes contact Carl Fredrik Berg (SCA VP of Technology) at email@example.com.
Call for Abstracts Submission Form
The form must be fully completed for each abstract submitted for consideration. The Technical Committee will review all abstracts. For abstracts accepted as Oral or Alternate Oral and Poster with Accompanying Paper a complete manuscript (12 pg limit based on the SCA template) will be required by May 10th 2021. The manuscripts will then be reviewed by the Technical Committee.
Authors should note that acceptance of the abstract does not automatically guarantee acceptance of the final manuscript, this will only be confirmed after the completed manuscript has been reviewed by the Technical Committee.
