We were happy to be back in Houston to have our (hybrid) sponsor meeting from March 14-17, 2022. It was good to see many of you live or noted you were linked to the stream and the team enjoyed to give live presentations again.
Delphi had its first hybrid meeting in the The Hague Marriott hotel from 12-15 Oct. We could welcome some (local) sponsor in-person and the rest of the community could connect online. The meeting provided discussions from both in-person and online attendees, which was highly appreciated.
Due to the current pandemic situation, the Delphi consortium had its delayed summer meeting from Dec 1-4 in a full online setting. In order to gain maximum audience, the meeting was limited to 3 hours per day, allowing attendance from East to West.
On April 15 2020 Shotaro Nakayama defended his PhD thesis entitled ‘Optimization of Blending and Spatial Sampling in Seismic Acquisition Design’ in front of the doctoral committee. His promotors were Dr. Gerrit Blacquière and prof. Kees Wapenaar.
February 18-21 we had the yearly Delphi meeting in Houston, in the OMNI hotel. Participants from the consortium members enjoyed a 4-day program. Despite some visa issues we had a team of 15 people present organizing and presenting the meeting.
Besides aiming for conducting high-quality research we also strive to optimally bring these results to you. Currently, we give written reports (as PDFS), provide software releases and have twice a year our consortium meetings.
Delphi was founded in 1982 by professor Berkhout. The research activities were sponsored by 5 companies. Now 30 years later, Delphi is financed by 34 international companies and the consortium is still growing. During the consortium meeting in The Hague, May 28 - May 31, there will be extra festivities to celebrate the 30th anniversary.
