GOM3 News - November 2013

GOM3 Annual User Conference

The 8th Annual User Conference will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at Maersk's offices in the CityWest park of west Houston. The conference is intended for geologists, geophysicists, engineers, land specialists, GIS professionals/techs, and managers. The exchange of ideas and directions for our future development are still the top priority of the conference; we will continue to aim for the informality and small size of past years. Registration is free, though limited, but we will do our best to accomodate those who wish to attend. Register here.
