Digitalisation Conference

First World Conference for Digitalisation of Inspection and Integrity in the Energy Industry

Digitalisation of Inspection and Integrity applications and processes is transforming the way assets are managed in the Energy Industry. The pace of change is accelerating and there is a growing need for sharing of knowledge and industry dialogue. The 1st World Conference for Digitalisation of Inspection and Integrity in the Energy Industry, organised by the HOIS Joint Industry Project, is a trailblazing event that addresses this critical need. The conference will engage and connect participants ranging from developers of technology and methods through to operators of facilities and production units.

The event is being run as part of the Digitalisation initiative in the HOIS JIP and builds on success of the HOIS Digitalisation Forum which was launched in early 2020 and held regularly since. It will bring together developers and practitioners in the Inspection and Integrity community to share progress on innovations in technology and methods as well as review practical applications, including the challenges to implementation and highlighting the benefits delivered.
The inaugural event will be held as a virtual meeting on the 5th and 6th of October 2021. It will address the following key themes.

  • Digitalisation in support of inspection technologies
  • Monitoring technology
  • Digital twins
  • Inspection data management and processes
  • Using large inspection data sets
  • Quality assurance for inspection data
  • Extracting value from inspection data by advanced analytics
  • Planning and evaluation of sampling inspections
  • Predictive methods based on inspection and monitoring inputs
  • Simulation methods for inspection planning
  • Integrity and life assessment based on advanced inspection data
  • Machine learning and AI for inspection data analysis
  • Validation of inspection techniques and data analysis methods
  • Validation of machine learning and AI models
  • Digital work-flow support tools
  • Applications and Case Studies
    • Upstream Oil and Gas
    • Refining and downstream processing
    • Power generation, including renewables

A formal call for papers, with more details on priority topic areas will be issued shortly. This will include a request for abstracts which will be reviewed by the Conference’s Industry Steering Group. Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities will also be available.

The conference will be held over two full days with the aim of accommodating participants from a wide range of time zones.
