Welcome to the New Year! Apart from the World Junior IIHF Hockey Championship that wrapped up earlier in Calgary (Go CANADA!); also coming up this month will be the 40th Anniversary Doodlespiel out in Banff from January 27th thru 29th, 2012… best of luck to all the teams. It sounds like the Doodlespiel committee has great things planned for curlers and spectators alike.

GEOSKILLS 2012 – Save the Date and Sponsorship Opportunities

What is GeoSkills?

GeoSkills is an annual one-day conference (February 1st, 2012) organized by a joint committee of students and industry professionals whose goal is to bring quality speakers, students and working professionals together for a day of learning, lectures and interaction between these groups. GeoSkills is open to all industry members and students.

This year, we expect approximately 250 Geoscience students from Mount Royal University, the University of Calgary and the University of Alberta, to attend. There will be an evening mixer to bring together the students and industry.

GeoSkills offers your company or organization the opportunity to show support, gain exposure, and build relationships with Alberta’s future geoscientists. We provide our sponsors the opportunity to distribute information about the work that is undertaken as well as what they hope to find in their future employees. We invite you to become part of this exciting event. The generosity of our sponsors is crucial to the success of GeoSkills. Investing in this conference is an investment in the future of geoscience as a discipline in Alberta.

Contact Kyle Plante (Mount Royal University liason) at: kyleeplante@gmail.com for further sponsorship information.

Matteo Niccoli is a P. Geoph. with APEGGA. During the day he works as a Geophysicist in the oil industry in Calgary. In his free time, Matteo does research in Geoscience and has just started a new Geoscience blog at: http://mycarta.wordpress.com.

Primarily, the blog focuses on exploration data enhancement, visualization and interpretation. The second core area of the blog is Image Processing and its applications in Geoscience, medical imaging and Forensic science. Out of interest, a final, smaller portion of the blog will be dedicated to Planetary science and exploration of the Solar System.
