46th Stanford Geothermal Workshop Virtual – Feb. 16-18, 2021 Stanford Geothermal Workshop 2017 (source: GRC)
Alexander Richter 18 Dec 2020

The 2021 Stanford Geothermal Workshop will be held virtually as a three full-day virtual event.

On its website, the Stanford Geothermal Workshop has announced its 46th Annual geothermal workshop will be held virtually February 16- February 18, 2021.

Please note that many procedures will be DIFFERENT about the 2021 Stanford Geothermal Workshop, so we would ask you to please read this notice carefully in its entirety. In particular, please note:

  1. The dates of the meeting have been moved by one day, to avoid the Monday President’s Day holiday. The meeting will start on Tuesday 16th February 2021.
  2. The meeting will be entirely virtual.
  3. Only registered participants will be able to access the virtual site, so it will be important to register in advance.
  4. Papers will be presented in real time using pre-recorded videos, with the speaker present for questions and discussion.
  5. Authors will record their own video presentation, and upload it in advance to the website (deadline Friday 5th February 2021). (Powerpoint file upload is not needed this year.)

Author Access 

Abstract submission was open until 20 October 2020, For accepted abstracts, Click here for authors access to paper submission etc.. Papers are due on Monday 1st February 2021 (note that this is earlier than usual).

Abstract Submission is now CLOSED

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.
