Conferences and Conventions

The GCSSEPM Section and the GCSSEPM Foundation are deeply involved in advancing the state-of-the-art research and knowledge of the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) Basin by sponsoring the two major events in the GOM geologic community—our annual Perkins-Rosen Research Conference and the annual Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies (GCAGS) convention.

The Section and the Foundation have been hosting the world-renowned Perkins-Rosen (formerly the Bob F. Perkins) Research Conference in Houston since 1980. The Perkins-Rosen Conferences are unique in that each year we focus in depth on a single topic. The conferences attract authors and researchers from around the world who present the latest thinking in subjects such as deep-water sedimentation, salt tectonics, rift basins, unconventional resources, and many others.

The GCSSEPM has been cosponsoring the annual GCAGS convention at various Gulf Coast cities since 1953.
