Texas Consortium for Computational Seismology

Fall 2020 Sponsor Meeting

TCCS will hold the Fall 2020 Sponsor Meeting on November 9-13  as a virtual conference/webinar. You can find more information and register by clicking here

If you represent a TCCS sponsor company, please feel free to pass this invitation to other people in your organization.


The Texas Consortium for Computational Seismology is a joint initiative of the Bureau of Economic Geology and the Center for Numerical Analysis at the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin. Its mission is to address the most important and challenging research problems in computational geophysics as experienced by the energy industry while educating the next generation of research geophysicists and computational scientists.

Examples of research challenges include:

• Automating seismic data interpretation, signal processing, inversion, and seismic imaging workflows using supervised, unsupervised, and semi-supervised neural network based frameworks.
• Uncertainty estimation using Bayesian convolutional networks.
• Deep learning for carbon capture and sequestration (CCS)

• Estimating seismic velocities by using full waveform information.
• Identifying the most accurate and the most efficient seismic imaging algorithms while controlling the trade-off between accuracy and efficiency.
• Assisting the seismic interpreter by automating common interpretation tasks.

SEG Working Workshop - Python and Julia for Geophysics - August 8-11, 2018: This workshop asks participants to create small groups to identify and address obstacles to the more widespread use of Python and Julia in the geophysical community. The workshop participation is free but requires an application. Space is limited. The application deadline is August 1, 2018. Link to the application form. Learn more: HoustonWW 2018.

Spring 2018 Sponsor Meeting - April 19-20, 2018: Link to the news webpage.

August 9-13, 2017: SEG Working Workshop in Houston 2017Working Workshops as opposed to "talking workshops" are meetings where the participants work in pairs or small teams to develop new software code or to conduct computational experiments addressing a particular problem. In this workshop participants will work in small groups to create short, reproducible, geophysical tutorials.

July 10-11, 2017: Madagascar School of Reproducible Computational Geophysics Shanghai 2017. This Madagascar school will introduce the advanced usages for the users with fundamental knowledge of Madagascar. Besides the lecture section, this school will also feature a discussion section, in which the participants are welcome to share the research experiences using Madagascar. This Madagascar school is convened by Prof. Sergey Fomel from the University of Texas at Austin and hosted by Prof. Jiubing Cheng from Tongji University.

April 21-22, 2017: Madagascar School at the University of Houston 2017. The two-day class is open to the geophysics community.
