||Utilization of opportunity oil reserves has emerged as a key driver for the realization of North American energy independence. However extracting and refining these complex streams presents a unique set of engineering and scientific challenges. The presentations, which will be primarily by Invitation, will broadly focus on the critical dual problem of corrosion and fouling. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following issues: Various aspects of refinery corrosion and organic/inorganic fouling, fundamentals of sulfidic, naphthenic and aqueous corrosion in oil-related environments, high temperature oxidizing, sulfiding and mixed corrosion, fundamentals of asphaltene science, low temperature fouling related to wax buildup and/or asphaltene flocculation, corrosion-fouling in tar sands operations (SAGD, etc.), synergy between mechanical stress and corrosion in pipes, emerging coatings, defect detection technologies, corrosion - related microscopy and microstructural analysis, electroanalytical techniques, new corrosion resistant metallurgies, modeling high temperature or low temperature processes, inhibitor chemistry, interaction of oil chemistry with metal surfaces, emerging fouling analysis experimental methods.
