The International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) is a multi-disciplinary event sponsored by four leading industry societies— American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE), Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), and Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). Returning to Doha, Qatar, the seventh edition of IPTC will be held 20–22 January 2014 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC). IPTC is renowned for its exceptionally high standard of technical programmes, and with the experience and dedication of the programme committee, the 7th edition will be no exception. The programme will include an executive plenary session, four panel sessions, over 70 multi-disciplinary technical sessions, and a number of special sessions—all representative of current and future issues facing the industry. We highly encourage you to be part of this event by submitting your paper proposals for consideration by the programme committee. The 7th IPTC will be an excellent opportunity to share your experiences, innovations, and best practices with the global E&P community. A full list of technical categories and submission guidelines are available in this call for papers. Submit your abstracts online at www.iptcnet.org/2014/doha before 12 April 2013. We anticipate a successful and engaging technical programme for the 7th IPTC and look forward to your valued participation and contribution. Regards,

Michael Casper Gunningham

GUIDELINES FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION
Oral Presentations/Poster Presentations for the Conference will be selected from abstracts submitted to the Conference Programme Committee. The Programme Committee will consider all abstracts submitted by the deadline of 12 April 2013. Early submission is particularly important to ensure that the Committee has ample time to review the abstracts. Authors are strongly encouraged to submit their abstracts electronically at the IPTC website, www.iptcnet.org/2014/doha.

TECHNICAL CATEGORIES
Use the technical categories included in this leaflet to indicate the category that best describes your abstract. A primary choice is required; however, a secondary choice is optional. Abstracts are evaluated on the basis of the information supplied on the abstract form in accordance with the following criteria: 1. The proposed paper or poster must contribute to petroleum technology or be of immediate interest to the oil and gas industry, and should contain significant new knowledge or experience in the oil and gas industry. 2. Data in the abstract must be technically correct. 3. The proposed paper or poster may present information about equipment and tools to be used in exploration and production. Such abstracts must show the definite applications and limitations of such equipment and should avoid undue commercialism and extensive use of trade names. 4. The substance of the proposed paper or poster must not have been published previously in trade journals or in other professional or technical journals. 5. Prior to abstract submission, clearance must be obtained. Any problems concerning clearance should be outlined when the abstract is submitted.

ABSTRACT CONTENT
A proper review of your abstract requires that it contain adequate information on which to make a judgement. Written in English and containing a maximum of 300 words, abstracts should include the following: • DESCRIPTION: Summarise the scope and nature of the work upon which an accepted paper will be based upon (e.g. field data, lab data, original analysis, or computer work). If the paper is a review paper, carefully state the extent of the coverage. • APPLICATIONS: Describe the possible applications of the information provided in the paper or poster. • RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: Summarise the results and major conclusions to be presented in the paper/poster and state specific conclusions of the work and how these differ from previous work on the same subject. State whether new information will be revealed and whether data from field, lab, or computer work will be included.

IPTC Sponsorship and Exhibitor Opportunities Available. For more information, visit www.iptcnet.org/2014/doha or contact Sylvia Ansara at sansara@iptcnet.org.

• TECHNICAL CONTRIBUTIONS: Describe the significance of the subject matter in the abstract by listing up to three technical contributions or additions to the technical knowledge base of the petroleum industry.

GUIDELINES FOR ACCEPTED ABSTRACTS

1. 2. 3.

Your abstract could be accepted for either Oral Presentation or Poster Presentation. Authors of abstracts selected for the Conference Programme will be notified in mid June 2013. Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be required to provide either a full manuscript or an extended abstract for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings as follows:

6. 7.

Detailed instructions on the preparation of Manuscripts/Extended Abstracts, slides and posters will be sent to the corresponding author of each accepted paper. IPTC assumes no obligation for expenses by authors for travel, lodging, food, or other incidental expenses.

A WORD ABOUT COMMERCIALISM
Manuscript: To be approximately 7,000 words in length, including figures, charts and tables. Extended Abstract: To be approximately 4,000 words in length, including figures, charts and tables. 4. 5. Please note that if accepted, your paper may be published, as submitted, in conference information media, including the Conference CD-ROM Proceedings and on the IPTC website and the websites of the IPTC sponsoring societies. In the event that the author of the accepted abstract fails to provide a full manuscript or an extended abstract and the associated forms by the deadline date, 15 October 2013, the IPTC organisers will reproduce the original abstract, as submitted to IPTC, in the Conference CD-ROM Proceedings. IPTC has a stated policy against use of commercial trade names, company names, or language that is commercial in tone in the paper title, text or slides. Use of such terms will result in careful scrutiny by the Programme Committee in evaluating abstracts, and the presence of commercialism in the paper or poster may result in it being withdrawn from the conference programme.

COPYRIGHT
All authors of papers or posters presented at the conference will be required to complete and submit a copyright release form to IPTC or submit the copyright exemption form where applicable.
