Maurice Nessim - SEG President
"Geologists and geophysicists often work together in teams, learning from one another and sharing methods and observations to deliver solutions more valuable and durable than what they can achieve without multidisciplinary collaboration. Our organizations complement each others strengths. Through our new collaboration on IMAGE, we can better serve the needs of geoscientists."

Stephen Sonnenberg - Professor and Charles Boettcher Distinguished Chair, Colorado School of Mines
“The IMAGE’21 meeting combines two great society annual meetings into one super geoscience meeting. The meeting has an outstanding technical program which will have something for everyone. This is also a networking opportunity for those who choose to attend in person.”

Bryce Swinford - Senior Geophysicist, OXY and IMAGE 2021 Technical Program Chair
“I am excited for the opportunities of increased learning afforded us due to the expanded technical program created by the combination of AAPG ACE and SEG Annual Meeting into IMAGE. As a geophysical generalist, the breadth of the technical programming allows myriad options for learning about envelope-pushing research and applications to my daily work.”
