ICGH9 in 2017
The conference aims to bring together the entire Gas Hydrates community, to review developments over the previous three years, and to attempt to extrapolate for the near-term future. We anticipate presentations in every variety of topic regarding hydrates including, but not limited to fundamental physical properties, applied flow assurance, energy recovery from natural hydrates, and climate change.
This is a truly diverse community, including academic researchers, industrial scientists and engineers, government scientists and policy makers. All are welcome to this community, ranging from those just beginning to those with substantial expertise.
This will be an exciting conference that will provide the opportunity for participants to be able to meet others in the same or different hydrate areas, and exchange ideas, expertise and experience, and renew and form new friendships and working relations. The conference is structured so that participants can learn from both formal and informal interactions, such as presented papers, posters and social events.
