The 40th Stanford Geothermal Workshop will take place next January and will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on the exploration, development and use of geothermal resources.

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.

Dates: January 26-28, 2015
Location: Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center
326 Galvez St., Stanford, CA 94305-6105

Topics:
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:
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. To submit an abstract for consideration, please click on the “Registration” link in the left side-bar. If accepted, a full paper must be submitted by the due date (described in teh Author Instructions).
