In 2013 and 2014 we hosted unstructured sessions at the Canada GeoConvention in Calgary. The idea was to invite people into a discussion about pressing topics in our industry and our science.
We believe the most interesting and most lasting solutions to the unsolved problems in our industry will come from collaborative efforts. And most of them will not come from existing collaborations, but from new ones. Unsessions and hackathons throw people together in new ways, and force them to not only think about solutions, but to act on them.
We have hosted geophysics and geology hackathons in Houston and Denver. In 2015 we will bring the hack to Calgary. We hope to see you there!
