2022 Sharing Technologies Seminar

30th Annual Sharing Technologies Seminar
The Pipe Users Group of Northern California invites papers for presentation at its 30th annual SHARING TECHNOLOGIES SEMINAR to be held Thursday, February 17, 2022. Due to the current circumstances regarding COVID-19, a decision on a live or virtual event hasn’t been determined. We are still planning to have a single day event and our goal, as always, is to make this a participant-forward program with as much audience interaction as possible.

Call for Papers
Please submit abstracts using the google form link below. Abstract submissions must be received no later than October 29th, 2021 at 5 pm.
