About the institution
IIT Madras is a premier centre for teaching,
research and industrial consultancy in the
country. The campus is situated in lush green
environment and the weather in the month of
November is expected to be pleasant with
temperatures around 28
C (max) and 20
(min). On campus guest house and hostel
accommodations will be provided for the
participants based upon availability and on
first-come-first-serve basis.
About the international conference and
symposium on petroleum exploration
The international conference on petroleum
science and technology (during 3 - 4
November) is the third conference in a series
that started in 2010 - first conference in 2010
and second in 2012 were conducted as
international conference on Drilling
Technology. Because of the overwhelming
response from other areas, the scope of
conference has been widened to include all
the areas of Petroleum Technology and it is
renamed as the International Conference on
Petroleum Science and Technology.
A one day symposium focusing on
petroleum exploration is being planned in
honor of Prof. (Retired) SP. Subramanian a
recently retired professor from the
department - who has made immense
contribution in developing the petroleum
engineering program at the Department of
Ocean Engineering, IIT Madras, India, on 5
November 2014.
The primary objective of the conference and
symposium is to share and disseminate the
information and design base being built by
the researchers in the areas of drilling
technology, petroleum science, engineering
and technology. The engineering activities
that drive oil, gas, minerals and ore
exploration require constant update as and
when new technologies get matured and are
made available to the industry. The main
feature will be the keynote lectures from
academia, industry and government policy
Call for papers
ICPST-2014 invites all the researchers to
submit original and unpublished work.
Please submit extended abstract (2-3 pages)
in IEEE format on A4 size in Times New
Roman Script of 12-pt font.
All the received abstracts will be reviewed
and judged on merits including correctness,
originality, technical strength and quality of
presentation. The accepted abstracts will be
invited for the full-length paper submission
(8-10 pages).
The accepted full-length papers will be
published in the conference/symposium
proceedings. For each of the accepted papers
at least one of the authors has to register for
the conference.
The conference venue is Auditorium, ICSR
Building, IIT Madras, Chennai, India.
