Wi-Fi is the name of a popular wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless high speed Internet and network connections. In this paper, we introduce a real-time wireless image transmission system. In the present systems uses two separate processors for image acquisition and communication subsystems. Here we use a single Concerto chip instead of two processors. We transmit images with variable size. This system is based on Simple Link CC3000 Wi-Fi Module and F28M35x (Concerto) MCU which controls the wireless transceiver. The Concerto is a multi-core system-on-chip microcontroller (MCU) with independent communication and real-time control subsystems. The data rate of the system is 11Mbps at least and 54Mbps at most. The Wi-Fi module uses infrastructure mode network of IEEE802.11g. The common constrains that we are facing during the design and implementation of Wi-Fi networks are security issues, low data rates, distance problem, hidden node problems and error rate. These negative aspects can be simplified by using Simple Link CC3000 Wi-Fi Module. © 2013 IEEE. Source

With each year's passing comes the exciting anticipation of what the new year will bring. We at SEG are excited about the changes that our members will be able to witness across our various online channels, including the SEG Web site, e-mail, and social-media venues this coming year. Here is what you can expect to see as the calendar changes from 2015 to 2016. Source

The Meetings Review and Planning Committee (MRPC) at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) reviews all meeting requests that are submitted through the SEG business office in pursuit of support from the Society. The MRPC has two primary functions, to provide member-driven validations to the SEG business office for proposed events of Levels I through III and member-driven recommendations to the SEG Board of Directors for proposed events of Levels IV and V and to ensure that all segments of our Society have knowledge of and input into the timing and content of the SEG calendar of yearly events. Because of its size and global location of members, the MRPC conducts the majority of its business via e-mail. On a monthly schedule, SEG business office staff members collect submitted event proposals and forward them to the MRPC chair, who distributes the proposals and supporting material to the committee members via e-mail. Approval by a majority vote of committee members is required for all meetings that seek the support of operation by SEG. It is required that a quorum of committee members must vote on each meeting request before it is approved or declined. The MRPC chair tallies the votes and reports the results to the SEG business office and the SEG Board liaison. Now, SEG is trying to change the role of MRPC. The role of the MRPC should shift to include a proactive meeting-planning role for the Society as well as to continue to serve as an informational nexus for the membership at large. Source

The SEG Deepwater Exploration Workshop was held successfully 20-22 September 2015 at the Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai Hotel in Shenzhen, China. Coorganizing this workshop with SEG were the China Offshore Oilfield Services Limited (COSL) and the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC). The workshop, "Innovative Solutions for Deepwater Exploration Challenges," provided an international platform for worldwide geoscientists who work on deepwater exploration to share their research insights and formulate innovative solutions to these challenges. Alfred Liaw of SEG China and Weiliang Dong of COSL cochaired the workshop's technical program. COSL, Schlumberger, CGG, the SEG Foundation, and Tullow Oil PLC were generous sponsors of the event.
