ISRM Petroleum Geomechanics Commission: mini-symp. on "Comput. Geomech. for Deep Subsurface Injection": deadline for abstracts is 15 December

As part of the ISRM Petroleum Geomechanics Commission activities, a mini-symposium on "Computational Geomechanics for Deep Subsurface Injection" at 5th Biot Conference on Poromechanics will discuss applications of the analytical and numerical methods, constitutive modeling, soft computing and parallel algorithm to the various deep subsurface injection processes.

Poromechanics of fluid injection into the deep subsurface porous media is widely applied in drilling, hydraulic fracturing, CO2 storage, waste disposal, gas storage and geothermal energy system. Computational geomechanics of porous media is essential to mimic such processes as field or laboratory tests are not available. These are all of interest to the Petroleum Geomechanics Commission.

The conference will be held in Vienna, Austria from July 10-12, 2013. Abstract submission through the conference web site is due by December 15, 2012.
