The workshop program is designed to serve as a platform for SPE to reflect on the role it should play to help and support open subsurface projects in the future.

Open source, data, and ecosystems tend to enable a faster pace of innovation. Today, subsurface modeling relies predominantly on proprietary solutions. The objective of this workshop is to explore how open communities could help accelerate innovation.


The workshop will be four half-day sessions.  See schedule for details.
