Stanford Geothermal Workshop
In accordance with Stanford University's Winter Closure policy, the Energy Science and Engineering Department will be closed starting Monday, December 18, 2023 and will reopen with regular operations on Monday, January 8, 2024. ESE will not be available during Winter Closure.
FEBRUARY 12-14, 2024
FRANCES C. ARRILLAGA ALUMNI CENTER
We are planning to hold the Workshop as an in-person meeting.
Registration is OPEN.
Abstract submission opened on July 1, 2023 and will close on Friday October 6, 2023. Notification of abstract acceptance/decline will be by Thursday 16th November 2023. To submit abstracts, click here for authors access to paper submission etc.. For accepted abstracts, full papers are due on Friday 2nd February 2024.
Registration is open.
Program will update as we construct the program as papers are submitted.
The goals of the conference are to bring together engineers, scientists and managers involved in geothermal reservoir studies and developments; provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on the exploration, development and use of geothermal resources; and to enable prompt and open reporting of progress. We strongly encourage all scientists and engineers involved in geothermal reservoir technology to attend the workshop.
Papers will be presented on recent research relating to geothermal reservoirs including:
- Case Studies: reservoir response to production, effects of injection, scaling characteristics
- Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS): current and future activities
- Engineering Techniques: reservoir simulation, empirical methods, well tests, tracers
- Field Management: strategies for exploitation, injection, scale inhibition
- Exploration: geophysics, geochemistry, geology, heat flow studies, outflows
- Drilling and Well Bore Flows: well stimulation, bore flow modeling, hydro-fracturing, scaling
- Low Enthalpy Systems: applications of heat pumps, hot dry rock technology
- Geosciences: application of geophysics, geochemistry, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics.
Papers accepted for presentation and/or publication are produced on a standard template that we supply. The papers will be available as a Proceedings CD at the Workshop and subsequently published in the online collection.
Continuing Education Unit (CEU)
CEU is a nationally recognized standard for documenting completion of noncredit continuing education programs. Stanford Geothermal Workshop is approved for 2 CEU Hours. Processing time is typically 1-2 weeks after the end of the workshop. The transcript will be sent as a soft copy to the email address listed on the registration.
Processing Fee for Continuing Education Units (2 CEU Hours) $100.00
Sign up for CEU when you register for the workshop.
We invite companies and sponsors to offer financial support for the workshop. Contributions from sponsors allow us to keep the registration fee modest; we charge about the same or less than most geothermal conferences, and also include lunches, a reception and a dinner. This permits more people to attend, especially students and international participants. Sponsors will receive acknowledgement in the opening sessions, workshop literature and the proceedings. "Named" events, e.g. lunches or the reception, are also possible. Please contact Prof. Roland Horne for more information about becoming a sponsor.
