The annual conference is held with the aim to increase students' interest in research, share experiences between junior scholars and facilitate discussions to solve challenges faced by students in the course of research.
2017's conference was dedicated to the 92nd anniversary of the national leader Heydar Aliyev.
BHOS administration, faculty and students, representatives of the sponsors SOCAR, BP, Statoil (now Equinor), Halliburton, Emerson, and Avandsis Group took part in the conference. We were represented by ACG asset manager Karsten Stoltenberg.
The conference consisted of plenary presentations by students and sessions on petroleum and chemical engineering, physics and mathematics, and information and communication technologies. The most informative and interesting presentations were selected by the panel and awarded diplomas.
“Giving students the possibility to present their research to fellow students, faculty and sponsors of BHOS gives motivation to students and enhances the knowledge exchange between practitioners and academia. I was particularly impressed by the variety of topics presented by students in more than 50 presentations delivered during the event. Sponsoring events like this helps to create the ‘Heroes of Tomorrow’ that our industry relies on to meet future challenges,” says Stoltenberg.
