XXIInd Congress to Saint Malo

The XXIInd Congress congrès  international bisannuel de Computational Methods in Water Resources was held from 3 to 7 june 2018 in St-Malo, France.

The GEOTREF project was represented by two oral commnications.

IMFT (*): in the session 13-Intensive Flow and transport modelling in fractured porous media: state of the art and actual challenges, presented Fast Upscaling of the Hydraulic Conductivity of 3D Fractured Porous Rock for Geothermal Reservoir Modeling.

Armines (**): in the session 01-Advances in Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) models, presented An attempt to generate physically-based DFN for coupled hydro-mechanical simulation.

GEOTREF project poster

The European Geosciences Union General Assembly (EGU) 2017 was held from 23 to 28 April 2017 in Vienna, Austria. This year, the largest European congress about Geosciences was attended by 14496 scientists from 107 different countries, during 4849 oral presentations, 11312 posters and 1238 PICO (Presenting Interactive COntent). The GEOTREF project was represented by communications in the form of posters and oral presentations.

Two members of the GEOTREF project participated in the organization of sessions:

  • Jérôme Fortin (ENS): Session EMRP1.1/ERE1.10/GI3.15. Evaluation of coupled reservoir processes: laboratory experiments and numerical modeling.

Jérôme Fortin (ENS): Session ERE1.4/EMRP4.40/TS2.6. Fracture, mechanics and flow in tight reservoirs.

  • Yves Géraud (GeoRessources): Session ERE3.4. Conventional and unconventional geothermal resources: Advances in integrated approaches for exploration and monitoring.

RST 2016

RST 2016

On the 24 – 28 October 2016, the premier national Geoscience congress, known as Réunion des Sciences de la Terre (RST; the French Earth Sciences Conference) will be held in Caen.

The 2016 edition will include 12 different themes, covering every aspect of the Geosciences.

The GEOTREF project will be represented there by five Ph.D. students who will show their work by either oral or poster presentations, in two different sessions.
