The 8th China National Symposium on Reservoir Acoustics and Deep Drilling Exploration Technology Frontiers (RA & DETF）, 2017 Beijing
“China National Symposium on Reservoir Acoustics and Deep Drilling Exploration Technology Frontiers（RA & DETF）” is sponsored by the Acoustic Society of China and Institute of Acoustics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Since 2010, it has been successfully organized for 7 times. Around 1000 delegates attended the series of symposiums, and more than 100 internationally recognized scientists, including several prominent young research scientists, have been invited for the symposium presentations. The China National RA & DETF Symposium has been becoming one of the most active and impacted symposiums in reservoir acoustics and borehole logging technology studies. Nationally, it plays an important role in pushing forward pertinent academic communications, promoting interaction among physics, geophysics, and geology, and advancing in deep drilling exploration measurements and logging technologies.
Presently, wireline logging will be gradually replaced by logging while drilling, and the incorporation between drilling and logging are developed profoundly. In accordance with the pertinent technical progress, from this year the symposium will be changed with its name as "China National Symposium on Reservoir Acoustics and Deep Drilling Exploration Technology Frontiers". Therefore, this year it will be the 8th China National RA & DETF Symposium.
The major topics, but not limited are：
1).Reservoir acoustics theories, principles and applications in reservoir exploration, characterization and evaluation, including elastic/acoustic and seismic wave propagation in heterogeneous, anisotropic and porous media, seismic imaging method, and reservoir inversions and predictions, and so on.
2).Acoustic wave propagation in borehole, acoustic logging, acoustic logging while drilling, single well acoustic imaging, borehole seismic survey, cross well acoustic tomography, vertical seismic profile(VSP), and so on.
3).Petrophysics and rock physics for seismic and borehole logging data inversion and interpretations.
4).Other novel research with regard to reservoir acoustics and borehole logging studies, such as studies on acoustic transducer, electromagnetic and radioactive sensors, borehole observation manners, and so on.
The official Languages can be both Chinese (with English PPT) and English, respectively. Presentations with English are encouraged so that the English-speaking delegates are able to communicate directly with the invited speakers.
The 8th China National Symposium RA & DETF will be held on 23-25 October, 2017 at International Convention Center in University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. The organization committee would like to welcome all of people engaged in reservoir acoustic theories and applications, deep drilling exploration measurements and borehole logging tool designing, data processing, as well as geologic interpretation and evaluation to attend this symposium. Also, the organization committee would like to welcome the experts engaged in pertinent scientific and technological managements in these areas to participate in the symposium.
In addition, Huairou area in autumn with its rural scenery, is so beautiful in Beijing due to its mysterious and ancient Hongluo Temple, attracting Qinglong Gorge, fantastic Yanqi Lake, as well as famous Great Wall of Mutianyu. Also, the APEC meeting leaders left their historic footprints there. There are the hazy mountains embraced by silk breezes, and the mountain pavilions appearing from multiple layered green forests. The lake water ripples shine against the sun, and the falling maple leaves, danced in the air are all around the ground in red. Besides the technical symposium, we hope all of delegates are relaxed and refreshed, and enjoy your time during your staying in Beijing.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Huairou, Beijing.
