The Center for Subsurface
Modeling established an Industrial Affiliates Program in order
to foster frequent and open communication between participating
researchers and the corporate community. Over the years, this
Affiliates Program has proven itself an ideal gateway for
launching and conducting collaborative research efforts.
Benefits of Membership
have ready access to leading-edge research on a variety of
issues in subsurface modeling, parallel processing, and high-performance
computing, communicated via:
Annual review meetings;
Campus visits by affiliates;
Corporate visits by faculty members;
CSM technical reports, publications
and multimedia presentations of the group’s activities;
Funded short-term “residences” at CSM
in which members of our Affiliates’ corporate staff work
alongside CSM faculty, scientists and students.
yields a highly leveraged return, thanks to the large and
diverse portfolio of other funding within CSM. It also provides
an effective means of conducting exploratory or fundamental
research that would not be feasible to perform in-house.
The annual fee for membership is $40,000.
These funds are used primarily to support basic research.
A small portion goes to defray the costs of annual meetings,
technical reports, computational facilities and to supplement
travel and other expenses for project graduate students, postdoctorates,
visitors, and faculty.
