IO 08 Science and practice - the technologies to integrate people and work processes

Where Science and Practice meet

This conference is about the methods and tools for integrated operations, today and in the future. The place where science and practice meet. It will present the experience from some of the most advanced oil companies and system suppliers in this field today. It will also look ahead and reveal recent research results on future IO solutions from leading universities and research laboratories around the world. By contrasting today’s best practice with forwardlooking perspectives this will create a productive meeting place for generating new impulses in the further development of integrated operations practice. IO 08 will specifically highlight international aspects and has invited internationally recognized speakers from oil companies, service industry and universities.
