Please join us for the 2017 Perth Data Management Workshop on August 10, 2017.

Introduction & Why You Should Attend

The 2017 Perth Data Management Workshop (formerly known as Symposium) is a one-day event featuring plenary presentations, interactive discussions and networking opportunities. Taking place this year on August 10 at the Curtin University near downtown Perth, this annual event is attended by a variety of organizations and attendees from Analysts up to CEOs. Our attendees enjoy opportunities to stay current with what's new in both data management and oil and gas industry, connect with their peers, learn about professional development opportunities, reach potential clients, and more. Learn more about who attends and why you should be one of them. We have also included a letter that you can use with your management team to encourage your attendance at PPDM Events.

Agenda, Schedule & Abstracts

The theme for this year's Perth Workshop is "Traditional vs Emerging E&P Data Management." The oil industry has always been a cyclical one and it is going through challenging times right now.  E&P data and people may be the companies' main assets, but data volumes, variety and complexity are increasing dramatically while data expertise is becoming more difficult to access.  Keeping the (data management) lights on during a downturn may not seem like a priority to management, yet the expectation is that the data will be ready for exploitation when needed, including in new ways such as "data mining" and "machine learning".  The workshop is looking for presentations which will review either the traditional and proven practices of data management or emerging practices which are evolving in this modern changing environment, and how the PPDM programs and activities can support this evolution in the different organisations of our industry.

The deadline to submit abstracts for this event has been extended until end of day on June 5, 2017. To submit your abstract, please visit our Abstract Submissions Page. Please note that presentations are 20 minutes in length with 5 minutes afterwards for questions. Please note, PPDM Conferences and Seminars are designed to inform and educate the data management community. Please review our Presentation Guidelines prior to submitting your abstract.
