A conference is being convened for later this year by GSS Geoscience's colleague Dr Mike Simmons of Halliburton and Dr Jim Riding of the British Geological Servey (BGS).

The theme is to showcase Data Science, Machine Learning and Automation in Biostratigraphy and is run in conjuction with The Micropaleontology Society's annual meeting.

Work on Biostratigraphic "best practice" and results from a Halliburton internal project on Machine Learning (Mike Bidgood from GSS Geoscience Ltd. is a collaborator) will be presented.

A website for the conference will be available shortly.
