CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

SOFT COMPUTING FOR RESERVOIR CHARACTERIZATION AND MODELING

Reservoir characterization and modeling plays a vital role in modern
reservoir management. It maximizes integration of multivariate data and
reduces the uncertainty of reservoir predictions. It helps to make sound
engineering decisions and improves the asset value of the oil and gas
companies. Soft computing, a collection of various intelligent
techniques including neural networks, fuzzy reasoning, evolutionary
computing and hybrid models, is increasingly popular. Unlike the
conventional hard computing, soft computing is tolerant of imprecision,
uncertainty and partial truth, and hence producing overwhelming results
over conventional methods in many published studies.

In response to this, we would like to call for contributions for a
special edited book on “Soft Computing for Reservoir Characterization
and Modeling,” to be published in the popular series Studies in
Fuzziness and Soft Computing by Physica-Verlag, a Springer-Verlag
company. The contributions must be new and original. The topics include,
but not limited to, the followings:

Advanced and innovative techniques
Geophysical data processing
Numerical geology
Well log analysis
Reservoir mapping and 3D modeling
Reservoir upscaling
Reservoir engineering
Multidisciplinary studies
Field applications

The deadlines are:

Submission of abstract proposal (max 300 words): 1 May 2000
Notification of acceptance: 15 June 2000
Submission of full manuscripts: 1 August 2000
Submission of camera-ready version: 15 January 2001
Expected publication: June 2001

You are encouraged to submit the abstract to Dr Patrick Wong via email
at pm.wong@unsw.edu.au
