EEGS Foundation Silent Auction
Once again, the Foundation will hold a Silent Auction at this year’s SAGEEP. Foundation leadership is seeking donors of items that can be sold to the highest bidder at the auction. All proceeds will benefit the EEGS Foundation. Contributions can include gift cards, works of art, professional services, electronics gadgets (e.g. iPhones, iPads, Kindles, GPS units, etc.) or other like items or services. Or, suggest something you have in mind - contact the Silent Auction Committee Chairman Douglas Laymon (email@example.com). Gifts can be made by individuals or organizations (talk to your employer!). The items can be mailed in advance to the EEGS Business Office (c/o Jackie Jacoby) or brought to the SAGEEP registration desk at the beginning of the conference. Details on contributing items and tax benefits can be found via this link: http://www.eegsfoundation.org/#!page4/cfvg.
You can also participate in the auction by purchasing one of these items, so come prepared with a check or credit card! Everything will be on display throughout the conference and winners will be announced in the Exhibit Area on Wednesday at the mid-morning break. Once the item is purchased, you can take it with you or have it shipped (postage will be at additional expense to the purchaser).
For those who are staying at the host hotel, Denver Marriott City Center: Pick up your complimentary SAGEEP 2017 commemorative beer glass! Just stop by the SAGEEP registration desk and show your hotel card key.

Workshop: Writing for Scientific Journals or Lunch on Your Own – Grab your lunch (or pre-order a boxed lunch for convenience) and join Journal of Environmental & Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) Editor, Dale Rucker, as he shares the ins and outs of publishing a scientific article. Have you ever wondered why it takes so long to get in print? Are you unsure about how to write an article, how it should be organized, or where to start? The workshop will hopefully dispel the mystic behind the publication process and inspire you to start your next great contribution to science. (Pre-ordered boxed lunches may be ordered online or purchased on site.)

“Groundwater Science - Innovation and Transformation”Our ability to explore, assess, monitor, and manage groundwater resources is being transformed by a range of new technologies including satellite, airborne and ground sensors, and supercomputing research infrastructure. These are complemented by novel mathematical and statistical approaches that are critical for data processing, fusion, analysis and modelling of ‘big data’. These advances are producing step-changes in science work flows, while enabling significant science innovation through inter-and trans-disciplinary methods. The scale and pace of innovation is transforming work forces and business opportunities, enabling us to dramatically improve our ability to understand and manage complex hydrological and broader Earth systems. This talk will highlight some of the advances being made and applied in Geoscience Australia’s ‘Exploring for the Future’ Initiative.
