Sub 20 - Inaugural Deep Earth Imaging Conference
CSIRO’s Deep Earth Imaging Future Science Platform is organising an interdisciplinary subsurface conference around the themes of imaging, conceptualisation and prediction of water, energy and mineral resources. Over two days, we will focus on the science required, developed and deployed by academia, industry and government to prospect today for the resources that will underpin our low energy future. The conference will include a combination of keynotes, panel discussions, presentations and networking opportunities. Particular emphasis will be placed on the next generation of techniques to acquire knowledge about the subsurface; by for example combining machine learning, forward modelling, inverse theory and predictive applications.
The Deep Earth Imaging Future Science Platform is holding its inaugural conference that will focus on the scientific advancements required to progress the understanding of the systems behind the formation of water, mineral and energy resources. To unlock challenging-to-recover resources situated at depth requires improving the predictive power of geoscience tools to enable the capture and integration of subsurface, deep earth information for resource modelling. Key to this is to develop knowledge through inference from often incomplete, sparse, indirect and irregularly distributed measurements of the subsurface. The conference will serve as a platform to showcase current developments and to identify challenges and opportunities
Sessions dedicated to imaging, conceptualisation and prediction with keynote presentations that identify the challenges and opportunities in these spaces and knowledge development through inference.
Panel discussions by experts in industry, government and academy focused on the roles of imaging, conceptualisation and prediction, and the synergies between these activities.
A stream focused on the relevance and value of imaging, conceptualisation and prediction in the social license to operate context.
An introduction to the current and planned research initiatives by government and academia to aid prospecting for the resources that will underpin a low energy future.
- Best presentation by an early career researcher (less than 3 years relevant experience post PhD)
- Demonstrated excellence achieved through interdisciplinary research (presentation)
- Best poster
