Madagascar Workshop at ASEG-2013



The tentative 2013 ASEG Madagascar workshop agenda is the following:

9:00-9:30am Welcome and Background Installation
9:30-10:00am OpendTect and Madagascar
10:00-10:45am Madagascar Fundamentals
10:45-11:00am BREAK
11:00-11:45am Building workflows I: An introductory exercise
11:45-12:30pm Building workflows II: Acoustic/Elastic modelling
12:30-1:30pm Field seismic data processing example
3:15-3:30pm BREAK
3:30-4:15pm Developing your own programs
4:15-4:40pm Contributing to Madagascar
4:40-5:00pm Discussion and wrap up


The Crowne Plaza Hotel is located a short walk away from the Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). The workshop will be held in a room within the hotel, and may be changed at the last minute to accommodate final registration numbers. A screen in the lobby will help you to locate the correct room for your workshop.

Transport and Parking

Most of you will probably be staying in the CBD, close to the MCEC, but if not there are a range of transport options available to you, including trains and trams, as shown on the transport map attached. Parking is available close to the hotel with a discounted rate for hotel guests as detailed in an attachment. There is also a large car park facility at the Exhibition Centre itself, south of the Yarra; additional information is available by MCEC.


Most of you will have pre-registered and you will only need to collect your name tag from the registration desk which we will set up in the hotel lobby. Please allow some extra time to do this as there are several concurrent workshops on most days and a large number of delegates participating. Late registration, at the registration desk, may be possible if there is room available, but no guarantees.


Tea and coffee will be provided on arrival, and at morning and afternoon breaks, with a selection of Chef’s bakery items. Lunch will be a buffet with a range of hot and cold choices including vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. If you have additional special dietary requirements you should advise the venue (Kate Jones on 03-96482779) in advance to ensure that your needs are met.

Pre-workshop Assignment

Please try to download and install the Madagascar package (stable version 1.5) in the days before the workshop according to the instructions on the left margin of this webpage. If issues come up, there will be a WiFi connection and an opportunity to install the package at the start of the workshop. Remember to bring your laptop (Linux, Mac or Windows) to the session!


  • James Deeks is a geophysics PhD candidate in the Centre for Petroleum Geoscience and CO2 sequestration (CPGCO2) at the University of Western Australia. His research interests include finite difference modelling of seismic wave propagation in complex scenarios. http://www.science.uwa.edu.au/research/postgraduate?profile/1/id/2696
  • Sergey Fomel is a Professor at the Jackson School of Geosciences, the University of Texas at Austin. He received a Ph.D. in Geophysics from Stanford University in 2001 and worked previously at the Institute of Geophysics in Russia and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Sergey started work on Madagascar (at that time named RSF for Regularly Sampled Format) in 2003. http://www.jsg.utexas.edu/researcher/sergey_fomel/
  • Yang Liu is a Professor of Geophysics at College of Geo-exploration science and technology at Jilin University, China. He received a Ph.D. in Geophysics from Jilin University in 2006 and was a Postdoctoral fellow at Bureau of Economic Geology, The University of Texas at Austin from 2007 to 2010. His research focuses mainly on seismic data processing. http://gest.jlu.edu.cn/index.php/teacher/read/id/249
  • Jeffrey Shragge is an Associate Professor with the Centre for Petroleum Geoscience and CO2 Sequestration in the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Western Australia. He received his Ph.D. (Geophysics) in 2009 in seismic imaging with the Stanford Exploration Project at Stanford University. His research interests are in the fields of seismic imaging (migration, time-lapse imaging and velocity inversion) and high-performance computing (parallel computation, GPU programming). https://www.socrates.uwa.edu.au/Staff/StaffProfile.aspx?Person=JeffreyShragge
