Workshop Guidelines

An SPE workshop is a multi-day event that fosters knowledge sharing in an intensive learning experience. It provides brief technical presentations followed by extensive Q&A and discussion.

Staged in an intimate setting, an SPE workshop brings together E&P professionals with common roles and challenges to share ideas that advance both technology and best practices. They provide an environment for frank, open discussion. Press is not invited to attend.

The workshop’s program committee members solicit presentations from top industry professionals. This ensures a robust technical program with presentations that are laser-focused on best practices, lessons learned, and case studies.

Format and Program

  • SPE Workshop maximizes idea exchange among attendees and discussion leaders through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods.
  • Workshops typically span two (2) days with highly focused topics to provide attendees with practical information on the latest applications of relevant technology, illustrated with field case studies and examples.
  • Each day will consist of a morning and an afternoon technical session and may include a scheduled evening session. Additionally, poster sessions may be arranged as part of the program.
  • The technical program is planned and developed by the Workshop Program Committee, which comprises an international group of 12 to 15 subject matter experts. The program committee is led by two Co-Chairs.
  • Released copies of the workshop presentations will be available to attendees following the conclusion of the workshop. Speakers do not write formal papers and are not required to release their presentations for publication.


  • All attendees (including committee members and speakers/facilitators/discussion leaders) are required to register for the workshop at accorded registration rates established by SPE. Such fee will cover attendance at all sessions, workshop program, coffee breaks, networking luncheons and dinner (as indicated in the program), Continuing Education Units (CEU) certification, and post-workshop pack.
  • The Chairs and members of the Workshop Program Committee, and facilitators/speakers/discussion leaders, serve as volunteers in their work for the SPE event. SPE policy prohibits the paying of any SPE honorarium, or any travel or lodging expenses connected with committee work and/or speaking at the event.
  • Attendees qualify for 1.6 SPE Continuing Education Units (CEU). One CEU equals 10 contact hours of participation. CEUs will be awarded through SPE Professional Development for participation and completion of SPE workshop. A permanent record of a participant's involvement and awarding of CEUs will be maintained by SPE.


  • SPE has a stated policy against use of commercial trade names, company names, or language that is commercial in tone in the abstract and presentation title, text or slides. Use of such terms will result in careful scrutiny by the Program Committee in evaluating abstracts and presentation materials.
