OTC 2017 - Abstract Submission Deadline is September 6, 2016

Submitted by toni.griffin on Sep 5 2016

On behalf of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) Board of Directors, the OTC 2017 Program Committee, and the OTC sponsoring organizations, we invite you to submit a paper proposal presenting your significant offshore project and/or technical solutions at the world’s largest offshore energy conference. This event will take place from 1–4 May 2017 at NRG Park in Houston, Texas, USA. Project-based presentations will receive priority consideration by the program selection committee.

OTC is the world-forum for revealing new innovations, solutions, ideas, and emerging technologies. Professionals including government officials, executives, managers, scientists, engineers, investors attend OTC from more than 120 countries.

For 2017, we are seeking ‘grand challenge’ themes. We recognize that, historically, cost-conscious times have given rise to grand, disruptive technologies. You and your company may be embarking on technologies to address or solve any of a number of ‘grand challenge’ problems – you may have emerging technologies, and/or you are making technology real: progressing technology from lab to field. You may also be refining organizational processes for technology management, securing intellectual property, and/or funding. These are just a few of the themes that we encourage for OTC 2017.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact Jamie Zarda, OTC Conference Specialist at jzarda@otcnet.org. OTC 2017 promises to be an excellent year for Offshore Technology. I want to see you be a part of this special moment in our industry.
