Session Organizers

  • Decheng Hong


    Jilin University

  • Jiefu Chen


    University of Houston

Session Information

This session welcomes all papers related to Electromagnetic/Acoustic (EM/ACOU) theories and their applications in oil&gas, mining, and other resource explorations. This session aims at presenting frontier research in the theory, modeling, inversion, interpretation, and especially, machine learning applications for solving the EM/ACOU problems and improving the interpretations of borehole and surface EM/ACOU surveys. All research related to EM/ACOU applications in resources explorations is very welcome: new tool design concept, efficient analytic solutions in complex medium, Hybrid numerical modeling method, Joint inversion method, meta-heuristic and deterministic inversion method, advanced interpretation, numerical modeling, and inversion based on machine learning method, and so on.

Submitted Articles

Note: The following submitted articles are not guaranteed to be scheduled in the final program at this stage. The final presentation type and arranged session will be decided by Technical Program Committee.
