Approaches to tackling the scientific and practical questions in the fields of Petroleum Geochemistry and Petroleum Systems Analysis range from the entirely theoretical to the empirical; Chris Cornford embraced both in his working life. The integrated approach he espoused will form the basis of the technical programme for the Conference covering two themes:

- Recent developments in the use of data including integration of models and (big) data; use of visualisation and data exploration or mining techniques.

- Topical issues & controversies ranging from mass balance approaches, petroleum migration to specific modelling studies and practical applications.

The Conference will be inspired by Chris’ ethos of innovation, encouragement of youth and challenging received wisdom.
