The IPC Foundation Board (ASME and CEPA) along with the IPC2020 Organizing Committee have continued to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on the conference. Out of an abundance of caution and concern for IPC attendees and volunteer organizers, as well as physical distancing, gathering and travel restrictions, it has been determined that the best way forward for IPC 2020 will be in a virtual only format.
The virtual conference will start on Monday, September 28th with tutorials and will continue on Tuesday and Wednesday (September 29 – 30, 2020) with the technical program – with a potential extension of some activities into Thursday Oct 1. Additional details regarding the virtual conference and the detailed schedule will be posted in the coming days. All tutorials and technical paper presentations will be available for viewing, along with a poster session, panels and featured keynote speakers. Approximately 250 technical papers have been submitted and will be published after final review and approval by the Technical Committee.
We have all learned to adapt to challenges during 2020, and we are committed to the best delivery of these high-quality technical papers that are so critical to advancing safety and reliability of the pipeline industry. Please check back to this website for future updates on IPC 2020 virtual conference.
We would once again like to acknowledge the hard work of so many individuals that have continued dedicating their time to develop this world-class pipeline conference. The Technical Committee (Chaired by Terry DeLong), the Virtual Conference Committee (Chaired by Chris Johnson), the IPC Organizing Committee, and all of the volunteers supporting each Committee, should be recognized for their contributions. Thank you!
