Description: Full waveform inversion (FWI) is now a widely established theory of geophysical imaging, yet not fully applied in practise due to limitations of seismic acquisitions, seismic simulations, inversion algorithms, and computational restrictions. This workshop will explore theoretical and practical applications of FWI theory through a series of Tutorials using field datasets, and Lectures discussing current leading industry practise, the latest research developments on theoretical and computational fronts, and techniques of data preconditioning and computational optimization. Researchers, students and industry practitioners are invited to attend.
