Ken Zonge honored with special IP symposium Geophysicists interested in induced polarization, complex resistivity, and related techniques, as well as explorationists and friends who wish to honor Ken Zonge for his many contributions to geophysical exploration are invited to a special symposium on 27–28 September 2007 in San Antonio immediately following SEG’s 2007 Annual Meeting. This symposium coincides with Zonge’s transition to a less active role after 35 years as the founder and driving force behind Zonge Engineering, now one of the world’s leading firms in the design/development of electrical equipment for mineral exploration and engineering and environmental studies. SEG formally recognized this achievement in 1995 when Zonge received the Cecil Green Enterprise Award.
The symposium will feature invited talks by many leading researchers and practitioners. In addition, poster presentations of specific developments and applications have been invited. The technical program portion of the symposium, scheduled for Room 103A of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, will have morning and afternoon sessions on Thursday (27 September) and a morning session on Friday (28 September). An informal social event will be held Thursday evening. SEG has assisted in arranging this special symposium, but it is not part of SEG’s 2007 Annual Meeting. Consequently, separate registration and an additional fee are required. Delegates will be able to register at the Zonge Engineering booth, on the floor of the SEG exposition, or at the meeting room. The cost for onsite registration is US$85 (US$50 for students and retirees). The registration fee will cover a buffet lunch on Thursday. The Thursday evening social event will include hors d’oeuvres and a no-host bar.
