Note: Attendees are expected to attend the full Forum. The full fixed registration fee is charged regardless of the length of time a registrant attends the Forum.

Details of accommodation and rates for spouses and family members will be sent with the registration packet that will be mailed to each delegate upon acceptance.
The SPE Forum Series provides morning, afternoon, and evening sessions of short, scheduled and unscheduled presentations, with maximum time available for informal discussions and exchange of experience. To encourage the free interchange of information and ideas, SPE Forums are conducted off the record. Written papers are prohibited, and extensive note taking is not allowed. Mechanical recording of any portion of the Forum in any form (photographic, electronic, etc.) is prohibited. Information disclosed at a Forum may not be used publicly without the originator’s permission. Participants are specifically requested to omit reference to Forum proceedings in any subsequent published work or oral presentation.
A short written summary of major issues and consensus arising from the Forum may be prepared and distributed to attendees after the Forum at the discretion of the steering committee, and with appropriate SPE approval.
To encourage maximum discussion, lengthy, formal presentations are discouraged. Presentations are usually limited to three or four slides or transparencies. Breakout sessions for discussions in smaller groups are common. Participants are encouraged to come prepared to contribute their experience and knowledge, NOT to be spectators or students.
To create a cohesive group in which discussion is free flowing, attendance at Forums is limited, and only registrants are allowed to attend sessions. To ensure opportunities for formal and informal discussions, all attendees are expected to attend every Forum session.
