Event Details

Now in its 12th year, the Rice Oil and Gas High Performance Computing Conference at Rice University (OGHPC) is the annual premier meeting place for networking and discussion focused on computing and information technology challenges and needs in the oil and gas industry. Attended by 450-500 leaders and experts from the oil and gas industry, academia, national labs, and IT industry, this is a unique opportunity to engage and network with key stakeholders. High-end computing and information technology continues to stand out across the industry as a critical business enabler and differentiator with a relatively well understood return on investment. However, challenges such as constantly changing technology landscape, increasing focus on software and software innovation, and escalating concerns around workforce development still remain.

 Where will the conference be located?
