Workshops maximize the exchange
of ideas among attendees and
presenters through brief technical
presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices. The majority of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements and lessons learned. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and the press is not invited to attend.
Proceedings from this SPE workshop
will NOT be published. Therefore,
formal papers and handouts are not
requested from speakers or panel
members. Note taking by individual
attendees is encouraged, but should
be limited to ensure participation
in the open discussion. A CD or
URL containing released copies
of the workshop presentations will
be available to attendees after the
workshop. A workshop summary will be prepared by the technical program committee for public release, but no other information (e.g., presentations, posters, etc.) will be publicly released.
SPE guidelines prohibit excessive commercialism in presentations. Company logos must be limited to the title slide and used only to indicate the affi liation of the presenter and others involved in the work.
