RMAG's Data Science Symposium focuses on data science and software development in the oil and gas industry. Data analytics is leading companies to new ways of thinking and faster insights. 

Students! We have a limited number of discounted student registrations at $100. You must be an RMAG student member to register at the student price.

Event Details:

  • Pricing: 
    • Members: $225 (remember to login to get member pricing)
    • Non-Members: $250
    • Student members (limited number, first come, first served): $100
  • Food: Registration includes a light breakfast and catered lunch. A reception will follow the talks.
  • Online registration closes March 31, 2020
  • Refunds for the Data Science Symposium are available only until March 24, 2020.
    If you are unable to attend, your registration is transferable. RMAG members may transfer their registration to another RMAG member, and non-members can transfer their registrations to whomever they wish. Should an RMAG member wish to transfer their registration to a non-member, the non-member would need to pay the balance between the member and non-member price.
