Hazards Australasia

Hazards Australasia is a leading process safety conference. It shares best practice, latest developments and lessons learned in process safety, promoting a continuous focus on improving process safety performance. The year 2020 started with difficult times in Australia, first with the widespread bush fires and then with the global pandemic. Both events have significant impacts on how we are do business and how we’re living. They also necessitate a change to how we manage process safety on a day to day basis. The workforce is strained with people unable to work for several reasons. We are interested to hear your lessons learned from dealing with these uncertain and disrupted times, in addition to other learnings you can share.

Key Information: Takes place: 10 to 11 November 2021. Location: CENTREPIECE, Melbourne Park, Melbourne. Call for Papers closes: 12 April 2021. Further information and registration.

Technology for Future and Ageing Pipelines

The Technology for Future and Ageing Pipelines Conference (TFAP), scheduled for 19-21 October 2021, draws on the legacy of two events previously organised by Rudi Denys (Universiteit Gent) and John Tiratsoo (Tiratsoo Technical) - the Pipeline Technology Conference and the Ageing Pipelines Conference.

Building on this legacy, TFAP is aimed at sharing knowledge and featuring the latest achievements relative to the assessment, use and maintenance of both ageing high-pressure (cross-country/offshore) transmission pipeline systems and ageing low-pressure distribution pipeline systems. This three-day conference will attract top researchers, engineers and decision-makers from pipeline research and academia.

Key information: Takes place: 19 to 21 October 2021. Location: Ghent, Belgium. Call for Paper closes: 12 March 2021. Further information and registration.
