Moore's talk will be " The Enercosm: the surprising source of our next era of prosperity." Moore will also be presenting at EnerCom's The Oil & Services Conference ™. Founded in 2003 by EnerCom, Inc., The Oil & Services Conference™ annually brings together executives and investment professionals focused on the global oil and gas industry. This conference takes place from February 19-21, 2013, at the Omni San Francisco Hotel. Each presenter will deliver a 25-minute presentation to a live and global investment audience. Mr. Moore will be presenting on Wednesday February 20, 2013 at 5:25 pm PST; his presentation will be available by webcast http://www.investorcalendar.com/CEPage.asp?ID=170539. "I look forward to both of these speaking opportunities. While divergent in nature these conferences are both highly respected in the industry. The Pacific Crest Summit will allow Acorn the opportunity to advance its global philosophy on energy and its financial promise as a result of the digital age. The EnerCom conference's emphasis on oil and gas will afford Acorn the opportunity to brief a specialized audience on the value proposition of US Seismic and its ultra-high sensitivity fiber optic based geophone. We see US Seismic's fiber optic geophone becoming an invaluable part of the technology needed to unlock unconventional oil assets efficiently, productively and safely. California's massive Monterey Shale, which the EIA said holds 65% of the technically recoverable oil from shale, is an example of the perfect environment for this tool," said Mr. Moore.
