The scoring process takes place from January 31, 2022 - February 11, 2022 with all applicants being informed of the status of their submission via email by February 18, 2022 with further instruction on the next steps provided at that time. All abstracts are fairly graded and purely chosen “by the industry, for the industry”.

The Technical Conference will offer attendees the best technical critical content spanning the entire value chain with a mix of individual technical presentations and panel sessions.
