CALL FOR PAPERS: 2018 AFPM Reliability and Maintenance Conference

AFPM, September 28, 2017

AFPM is seeking presentions for the 2018 Reliability & Maintenance Conference, scheduled to take place May 22-25, 2018 in San Antonio, TX. If you have done something novel, implemented a new technology, learned an especially valuable lesson, or improved your organization’s effectiveness, the Program Committee invites you to submit your presentation. 

The program committee is seeking presentations for the following categories:

  • Big Data and Energy Information
  • Contractor Management
  • Emerging Best Practices 
  • Emerging Technologies for Performance Improvement and Risk Reduction
  • How to Become a High Reliability Organization
  • Inspection Technologies
  • Instrumentation Reliability and Maintenance
  • KPI’s
  • Maintenance Planning and Scheduling (MPS) Best Practices
  • Mechanical Integrity 
  • ...and much more.

Abstracts proposed by operating companies or those with a firm operating company commitment to co-author (i.e. will contain operating company’s perspective) and abstracts highlighting new technology that has been implemented will have a significant advantage over similar paper proposals (all else being equal). This is not a guarantee that the abstract will be selected for the conference. Case Study abstracts which include refiners are highly desired.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete and submit the SUBMISSION FORM Priority deadline for submissions is November 3, 2017.
