The complete symposium program can be found here.

Registration is now open on the KEGS website.
Registrants will have access to all four sessions.  A GoToWebinar link will be sent to registrants before each session to join the online symposium.

Non-member - $150 (CAD) 
Student - $25 (CAD)

Student and Industry Showcase
Interested in showcasing your company or recent research/projects? The symposium will include two on-demand video sections: “Student Showcase” and “Industry, Government & Research Center Updates” Both will feature 5 minute/10 slide pre-recorded videos that may be accessed at anytime. 
  • The Student Showcase will serve as an opportunity for post-secondary students to present their thesis work to the geophysical community. It is open to all students studying or making use of geophysical techniques in their field of study.
  • The Industry, Government & Research Center Updates will showcase topics that range from short case studies, new R&D initiatives, and overviews of companies’ services.
  • Student and Industry showcase video submissions will be open until March 18.
