The event was combined with the 4th EAGE Workshop on Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing and the 4th EAGE Workshop on Practical Reservoir Monitoring. It gathered about a hundred scientists and practitioners from Europe, Asia as well as North and South America representing academia, scientific institutions and the private sector. Moreover, the conference was also attended by the producers of the systems for optical fiber distributed temperature sensing (OF DTS) and distributed acoustic sensing systems (DAS).

On 08.04.2024, during the workshop, the methodology for the practical application of DTS and DAS research in Earth sciences was shown. In the next two days, papers and posters were presented discussing the results of the application of distributed measurement techniques using optical fibers in high- and low-temperature geothermal energy, thermal monitoring, seismic research, monitoring of underground CO2 storage facilities, seabed research and many other areas of geology.

During the session entitled "Broad application space for distributed sensing", which took place on 09.04.2024, Dr. Maciej Kłonowski delivered a lecture entitled “Temperature logging in selected geological boreholes: DTS vs. manual profiling. Preliminary results of the OptiSGE project", in which he discussed the main assumptions and objectives of the OptiSGE project and its preliminary results, including the results of field research in the form of temperature data from measurements performed by the project team in selected hydrogeological wells in Lower Silesia in autumn 2023 and winter 2024.
