[Introduction] [Call for papers] [Committee] [Keynote speakers] [Registration] [Publication] [Venue and Program] [Accommodation]
Conference date: November 27 - 29, 2019


Call for papers

This conference is organized as joint event of the 2nd  COTech (Computational Methods in Offshore Technology) and OGTech (Oil and Gas Technology) to provide a platform for academics and professionals working within both the Offshore and oil and gas technologies to come together, present their recent works in the area, exchange ideas, and establish professional networks. It will serve as a forum for a multidisciplinary research and brings together Norwegian and invited foreign researchers to enable them exchange their research experience and dessiminate their results within the field.  

Topics for presentation on the conference and publication include, but are not limited to, the following research and application areas.

Send your contributions to the topic coordinators by e-mail (check important dates in the RH column).
