Human performance has become an important and integral part of the industry’s approach to safe and efficient operations. The drilling industry has made important strides in recent years to incorporate human factors into training and operations to improve performance. With significant gains still yet to be made, the 2020 IADC Human Performance Conference will seek to examine innovations that are shaping the future of drilling as it continues to rapidly implement new technologies with an understanding of basic human nature.

The Call for Abstracts has expired.  Authors will be notified by 6 December.
