1st HOIS World Conference for Digitalisation of Inspection and Asset Integrity in the Energy Industry: A 3-D Virtual Event

Join us on 5 and 6 October 2021 for the 3D virtual 1st HOIS world conference that aims to explore the digitalisation of inspection and integrity within the Energy Industry.

You can expect participation from some of the largest operators and supply chain companies globally, and technical presentations by some of the leading global specialists.

Digitalisation of Inspection and Integrity applications and processes is transforming the way assets are managed in the Energy Industry. The pace of change is accelerating and there is a growing need for sharing of knowledge and industry dialogue. The 1st World Conference for Digitalisation of Inspection and Integrity in the Energy Industry, organised by the HOIS Joint Industry Project, is a trailblazing event that addresses this critical need.

The conference will engage and connect participants ranging from developers of technology and methods through to operators of facilities and production units.

The event is being run as part of the Digitalisation initiative in the HOIS JIP and builds on the success of the HOIS Digitalisation Forum which was launched in early 2020 and held regularly since. It will bring together developers and practitioners in the Inspection and Integrity community to share progress on innovations in technology and methods as well as review practical applications, including the challenges to implementation and highlighting the benefits delivered.

The inaugural event will address the following key themes:

• Digitalisation in support of inspection technologies
• Monitoring technology
• Digital twins
• Inspection data management and processes
• Using large inspection data sets
• Quality assurance for inspection data
• Extracting value from inspection data by advanced analytics
• Planning and evaluation of sampling inspections
• Predictive methods based on inspection and monitoring inputs
• Simulation methods for inspection planning
• Integrity and life assessment based on advanced inspection data
• Machine learning and AI for inspection data analysis
• Validation of inspection techniques and data analysis methods
• of machine learning and AI models
• Digital work-flow support tools
• Applications and Case Studies
• Upstream Oil and Gas
• Refining and downstream processing
• Power generation, including renewables

A call for papers has already been issued but new abstracts are still being accepted for review by the Industry Steering Group. Further details on abstract submission are available here: ESR Technology - Call for papers! Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities will also be available – details to follow soon!

The conference will be held over two full days with the aim of accommodating participants from a wide range of time zones.

Why participate as a delegate?
We aim to deliver an inspiring two day 3D virtual event that will educate its audience and provide our delegates with an enhanced engagement and learning experience, like no other online event.
Not only will you will be able to listen to expert speakers from blue chip organisations delivering technical presentations and providing educational insights, you will also be able to use a personalised avatar to walk around the exhibition pavilions on a 3D platform and engage with them. Using the latest video conferencing and instant messaging technology you will be able to discuss the exhibitors' products and services in real time and download information onto your desktop about their products and services. You can also access presentations you missed at the conference after the event and watch them at your leisure!
This 3D virtual conference experience is as close as you can come to attending a real exhibition without actually being there in person and you can enjoy it all from your own home or office! Why Exhibit?

This 3D Virtual event will allow exhibitors to simulate all of the benefits of a physical exhibition and to enjoy all of the branding recognition and networking capability, without any of the downside of travel and at a fraction of the cost.

Our audience will consist of a high percentage of global operators and blue chip supply chain companies from the Energy sector who have decision making capability and influencing status within their organisation as well as a high percentage of the HOIS membership body.

As an exhibitor, you will be able to engage with delegates using video conferencing and instant messaging technology and communicate the benefits of your products and services in real time and organise to meet with delegates using a calendar function!

Your virtual pavilion can be used to communicate your company's value proposition to senior energy professionals using the latest high-resolution imagery and video technology and you can enhance your package by ensuring your branding is also available on other key physical spaces in the reception/networking area and conference hall to maximise your exposure.
