Ji Chen, professor of electrical and computer engineering at UH Cullen College, is hosting the 2015 Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts, SPWLA, Resistivity SIG Meeting on Oct 23.

The workshop provides a forum for presentation and discussion of resistivity, dielectric and other oilfield electromagnetic-related topics.

The event is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Rockwell Pavilion located on the second floor of the M.D. Anderson Library, Building 509, at 4333 University Drive in Houston. Registration is free for presenters and students. Attendees who are not giving presentations can register for $30.

The 2015 SIG Committee is calling for presentations or posters on interesting field logs as well as resistivity and dielectric topics. Those who have presented talks or posters on related subjects at other workshops are welcome to give the same or expanded versions of their presentations.

SPWLA is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to advancing the science of petrophysics and formation evaluation through well logging and other techniques applicable to exploitation of gas, oil and other minerals. Founded in 1959, the organization serves as a voice of shared interests for scientists in the petroleum and mineral industries, strengthens petrophysical education and increases awareness of roles petrophysics play in the oil and gas industry as well as the scientific community.

To register, complete an online application at www.spwla.org.
