The SPE has split the former "Management & Information" technical discipline into two new technical discplines:
- Data Science & Engineering Analytics
Forums are developed by the Forum Series Coordinating Committee and approved by the SPE Board of Directors. Planning and coordination is overseen by the Forum Series Implementation Committees, one committee dedicated for the western hemisphere and one committee dedicated for the eastern hemisphere. Forum topics are determined by relevance to region and technical discipline. What is an SPE Forum? A gathering together of 50‐75 of the best minds to discuss new ways of viewing the future that could not be achieved individually.
