We cordially invite you to submit articles to the 5th World Conference on the Safety of Oil & Gas Industry(WCOGI2014)which will be held in OKAYAMA CONVENTION CENTER Okayama,Japan on June 8-11, 2014.
As an international academic conference, World Conference on the Safety of Oil & Gas Industry(WCOGI)was launched by the government departments and universities related to the oil and gas production safety from the United States, Korea and European countries in 2006. WCOGI is held for every 1 to 2 years in different countries, aiming to strengthening the international academic exchanges and cooperation for oil and natural gas safety science and engineering, promoting the applications of modern safety science and technology in oil and gas industry, improving the establishment of a people-oriented oil and natural gas safety engineering technology system, reducing the oil industry accidents as well as production losses, and finally realizing the essence of security of oil and gas production.
The conference theme is “Safety and Environment for the Future of Energy and Process Industries” . The 5th World Conference on the Safety of Oil & Gas Industry(WGOGI2014)is a leading international conference for researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences from all Safety and Environment related areas.
