I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you as well as the many others who worked behind the scenes to make the recently concluded Conjugate Margins conference a success. Riding herd on such a diverse group is a challenge, and the presentations are result of your hard work. Again, thank you for your hospitality in Halifax, and please extend my thanks and appreciation to all those who helped to make the Halifax conference such a success!

I would like to congratulate you and the team for the amazing organisation and performance of the 2018 Halifax Conjugate Margin Conference. It was very good!

Thanks for organizing a great conference. It was very informative and enjoyable, and well-attended by geoscientists from many countries.  The Lobster Banquet on the Wharf was especially memorable!

It was a pleasure to help judge [the Student Presentation Awards] and I was really impressed by the caliber of talks.

Thanks for the organisation of such an interesting meeting. Hope to see you in the next Conjugate Margins meeting.

Dr. Patricia Cadenas, Université de Strasbourg, France

Linda and I are delighted to congratulate you for the recently completed Conjugate Margin Conference at Dalhousie University celebrating 10 years of Conjugate Margin conferences. This continuing series has profoundly influenced exploration creativity for a decade and inspires game-changing discoveries of future energy along conjugate margins. We were very inspired by the breadth and depth of the talks, posters, field trips, and core workshop geared towards Pushing the Boundaries of Knowledge. Clearly the Atlantic Margins conceptual constructs are driving discoveries of both knowledge and hydrocarbon resources.

Charles A. and Linda Sternbach, Star Creek Energy, USA

Great conference.  Thanks so much for your, Grant’s and many other people’s hard work putting it together.

Prof. Andrew MacRae, Saint Mary’s University, Canada

Thanks for all your help at the conference and for all your hard work in organising it. I hope you have managed to have a break now. We had a really good time and hopefully will generate some business from it.

Ian Steel, Earthmoves Ltd., UK

Let me congratulate you on the best conference I have been to in several years. There was an eclectic mix of good scientists with good new information and the whole conference seemed to go very well. Clearly you used your extensive networks to ensure that there was a critical mass of participants.

Dr. David J.W. Piper, Geological Survey of Canada-Atlantic, and Prof. Georgia Pe-Piper, Saint Mary’s University, Canada

That was a great conference and we have seen lots of presentation related to East Coast of Canada. Some new very interesting things and some old, all in all worth the trip and the time. The organization was flawless and I congratulate you, Grant and your team for this.

Dr. Michael Enachescu, Euxinic Exploration, Canada

I just wanted to say that it was a superb conference and field trip — our entire group had a fantastic time and we leave Halifax enthused and inspired. We’re already looking forward to Morocco, and beyond that, perhaps we will see you in Galway sometime in the future. I hope you all get the chance to relax in the coming days given all your efforts in the build up to the meeting!

Dr. Shane Tyrrell, National University of Ireland–Galway, Ireland

Very well done. An excellent week that keeps the technical momentum, contacts and ideas flowing. And maybe barrels and dollars? You never know.

Bill Richards, Dalhousie University, Canada

I just wanted to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to volunteer and attend the conference — it has been a great experience and I have met many interesting academic an industry researchers.
