IOSC 2017 Prevent Prepare Respond Restore

IOSC Is Going Virtual: May 10-14, 2021!

Earlier this year, the International Oil Spill Conference (IOSC) shared its decision to postpone the 2020 International Oil Spill Conference until May 10-13, 2021 due to the escalating global novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The health and safety of our attendees remains top priority for IOSC. Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding this global pandemic, IOSC 2021 will be transitioning to a fully virtual event experience.

This virtual experience will feature core elements of this triennial event, including the latest research in oil spill response, an interactive virtual exhibit hall showcasing the latest innovations and solutions, and dedicated networking time for you to grow your relationships within the oil spill response community. Participation in the virtual IOSC 2021 will grant you access to over 40 platform sessions and the plenary sessions, all of which will be available on-demand after their initial broadcast for three months to registered participants.

In order to incorporate these core features into the virtual event, we have expanded IOSC 2021 to five days, Monday, May 10 through Friday, May 14, 2021.

Registration for the virtual event will open in January 2021. Should you have any questions, please contact IOSC at [email protected] or +1-202-973-8689.

We look forward to having you join us for this virtual experience.
