Calling All Industrial Energy Professionals…

...calling for your papers, that is. The 37th Industrial Energy Technology Conference (IETC) is soliciting technical papers for its conference to be held June 2-5, 2015, in New Orleans, LA. Papers should cover topics directly related to energy efficiency improvements and environmental concerns in industrial operations. Particular emphasis should be placed on innovations, applications, success stories and failures, technology assessment methods and items of timely interest in the industry. Identification of new equipment and processes is of major importance. However, extensive commercialism in the presentation is not desirable and would be considered in poor taste.

Suggested Topics

About IETC

The Industrial Energy Technology Conference (IETC) was created in 1979 to meet the needs of the industrial energy community. It focuses on a wide variety of topics of importance to professionals who are involved in the production, use, or transportation of energy, or in designing and evaluating energy-related equipment and waste-reduction practices. Hosted by the Energy Systems Laboratory at Texas A&M Univ. and the Louisiana Dept. of Natural Resources, the IETC attracts an audience from North America and internationally. Attendees will hear about what other companies are successfully implementing, gauge the impact of new trends, see where the industry is heading, and share their experiences in meeting today's energy challenges.
