Happy Holidays Everyone! Come the new year, there will be new initiatives from the CSEG Communications Team (RECORDER and Digital Media) designed to streamline information for our membership and advocate for our society. Please be patient while we get up to speed… and in the meantime, please pay close attention to the CSEG email bulletins, the CSEG website and the CSEG LinkedIn Page for up-to-date information on technical programs and social committee updates. Stay safe this holiday season… be kind to yourself and others.

Technically Speaking

2019 Symposium

The Symposium Committee has named the late Roy Lindseth as their honouree for the 2019 Symposium which will be held in March 12th, 2019. Each year the Symposium honours one or more notable CSEG members, and the themes of the talks presented will relate to the work of the Honouree(s). In 2019, in honour of Roy, the Symposium will feature the theme of On the Shoulder of Giants.

Please go to https://cseg.ca/symposium/ for updates as they become available.

The format is a one-day, single session event, with lunch included. In order to attract case studies, there will be no published papers related to the work shown. Featured speakers will present by invitation only.

A highlight of the lunch will be the annual CSEG awards ceremony, with the outstanding achievements of the society's members honoured. Tickets for the lunch only will also be available.

The 2019 CSEG Symposium promises to be a highlight of the year, and a not-to-miss event for CSEG members!
