CLEAN PACIFIC 2019 Call for Presentations (Closed)

Deadline: NOW CLOSED

The CLEAN PACIFIC Conference & Exhibition delivers solutions for spill prevention and response for oil and hazardous materials in the marine and inland environment. It brings together all parties responsible for prevention and response operations in the Western United States and Canada to discuss best practices and build interagency relationships vital to a successful response. CLEAN PACIFIC was designed to deliver a program that covers issues unique to the West, and the conference agenda is carefully built out by a group of experts representing State/Provincial and Federal Government, industry and non-profit partners in oil spill prevention, preparedness, and response.

Prospective speakers are invited to submit a 200-300 word abstract(s) online for consideration by Friday, November 16, 2018. All abstracts are reviewed for content and relevance by the planning committee and are selected by consensus.

What puts your abstract in a favorable light?

  • Submissions from operating companies and/or regulatory agencies sharing new information
  • Submitting case studies that culminate with actionable recommendations
  • Being focused and concise on what will be covered in your presentation
  • Providing practical, tactical, and timely information

What will likely get your abstract rejected?

  • Submissions that are commercial in nature and/or product specific
  • Unfocused abstracts that do not concisely detail what the presentation will be about
  • Submissions clearly outside the scope of the conference
  • Abstracts that are heavily technical or scientific

NOTE: Limit 2 submissions per speaker. Accepted speakers receive complimentary registration to the conference. Only one complimentary registration per submission. Notifications regarding acceptance into the program will be emailed no later than mid-January 2019.
