GOM3 News - September 2014

GOM3 Annual User Conference

The 9th Annual User Conference will be held on Thursday, October 30, 2014 in the Memorial City area of Houston. As always this event will present enhancements from the past year, particularly the development of the next generation of GOMsmart (for phones, tablets and beyond) and the storm analysis work, as well as future plans.


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. More information will be included in newsletters in upcoming weeks, including any modifications to the agenda below.
