2016 IPC
Conference Chair

Patrick H. Vieth

We are now less than 3-months away from IPC 2016 and we are looking forward to another great conference! The Technical Committee is working closely with the authors and presenters of 300+ papers and we are close to finalizing and submitting the papers for publication and finalizing the schedule with expected completion in early August. Great job to the volunteers on the Technical Committee and the Authors and Presenters who have worked so hard in creating an incredible technical forum for the pipeline industry! This is the core of IPC.

We are experiencing a continued strong interest in IPC 2016. The registration for IPC 2016 is tracking ahead of prior conferences, the IPC partner hotels (Hyatt and Marriott) are nearing capacity, the IPC sponsorship support is tracking ahead of prior conferences, and there is a continue strong demand for conference delegates to attend. Since IPC 2014 was sold out and delegates had to be turned away from the conference, please consider the following:

  • Please submit your Full Conference Registration now to ensure your delegate experience at IPC 2016.
  • We anticipate that IPC 2016 will be sold out so please monitor the website for updates if you have not registered. On-site conference registration is discouraged since it will only be an option if space is available (IPC Registration).

The conference experience is continuing to evolve and some of the key changes for IPC 2016 are provided below. We are hopeful that by effectively communicating these changes in advance of the conference, it will have a positive impact for the IPC Delegate Experience.

  • Going Green. IPC 2016 will be environmentally aware and will reduce the amount of printed materials. Please bring your iPads, tablets, laptops and/or other devices that can connect to the IPC-provided WiFi.
  • Scheduling. IPC 2016 will have a state-of-the-art application (IPC App) that can be used to review scheduling, technical paper abstracts and other key conference communications and updates. Another reason to bring your devices and be connected during the conference.

The conference layout will be different than prior conferences so please be sure to review where you will need to go at the start of the conference. At-a-glance, this is what you should know about registration located at the Hyatt (3rd Floor) and Telus Convention Center (TCC)

  • Panel Sessions (Monday): Pre-Registration Packages will be available for pick up at Registration Counters at TCC starting on Monday, September 26th at 7:00am.
  • Tutorials (Monday): Pre-Registration Packages will be available for pick up on the 3rd Floor of the Hyatt. Please bring a copy of your paid invoice as proof to pick up your package.
  • Conference Delegates (Tuesday - Friday): Pre-Registration Package will be available for pick up at the Registration Counters at TCC beginning at Monday, September 26th at 9am. For delegates that have not attended Panel Sessions or Tutorials.
  • Thanks to everyone for their contribution and commitment to ensure that IPC 2016 will be best conference possible!
