Workshop and Symposium on Safety and Integrity Management of Operations in Harsh Environments is now accepting papers

The 3rdWorkshop and Symposium on Safety and Integrity Management of Operations in Harsh Environments will be held in St. John's on May 30-June 1, 2016, and papers on topics related to scientific understanding and engineering challenges for technological development and safe operation in harsh environments are now being accepted until Oct. 15, 2015.

The workshop and symposium provides an excellent international forum for both industry experts and academic researchers to exchange and discuss innovative ideas, to identify and establish new collaborative research opportunities relevant to the Arctic and other harsh environments. Dr. Faisal Khan founded the workshop and symposium and is thrilled with its success to-date.

“The workshop and symposium cover a broad range of research topics related to process safety and asset integrity management, which is so important,” said Dr. Khan. “The primary focus of the Safety and Risk Engineering Group at Memorial primarily is safety and integrity challenges faced by offshore oil and gas as well as mining industries operated in harsh environments, Arctic and remote areas.”

Continuing from past successes, this year’s workshop will include training sessions and a symposium on both theoretical and practical aspects. The workshop will provide three half-day specialized training sessions on the topics of human factors, abnormal situation management and winterization to enhance the understanding of operational challenges in harsh environments. The symposium will identify and discuss potential solutions to operational challenges in harsh environments.

Novel research articles for symposium are now being accepted on, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Process safety in harsh environments
  • Occupational safety in harsh environments
  • Design, constructional and operational safety
  • Risk assessment under uncertainty
  • Integrity challenges in harsh environments
  • Risk-based integrity management
  • Innovation in data collection and remote monitoring
  • Emergency scenarios and operational considerations

All submitted papers will be peer reviewed and selected on the basis of quality and relevance to the theme of the symposium.  The deadline to submit abstracts is October 15, 2015 and submissions should be done through the Ex Ordo abstract submission system (http://crise3.exordo.com/).
