Technical Program—Monday, 18 February

0830–1200

Plenary Session

Session Chairpersons: Mary Wheeler, University of Texas at Austin; Jan Dirk Jansen, Delft University of Technology

This session contains presentations of high general interest from different topics. The papers present new research results within optimization, history matching, discretization, gridding, nonlinear solvers and parallel computing. The practical implication for reservoir simulation is also highlighted.
