As the offshore oil and gas industry continues to rebound, so will the demand for dynamic positioning technology and services. The annual Dynamic Positioning Conference provides an annual forum for discussion and for exchange of knowledge, experience, new technology and technical know-how associated with the use, evolving technology and application of dynamic positioning. Each year, the conference continues to attract DP professionals from around the world as well as DP manufacturers and service companies who will be exhibiting their products and services.
This year’s workshop and conference will be held October 9 and October 10-11 respectively at the Westin Houston Memorial City hotel.
The committee has issued a call for papers for DP 2017, and industry professionals involved in all aspects of dynamic positioning are invited to submit abstracts.
A guideline of suggested topics found here includes many requested by past conference attendees. DP technology is rapidly evolving and the committee will consider any topics deemed of technical or operational interest, particularly when they discuss lessons learned, new technology and new approaches. Papers should be original in content and will be for the exclusive use of the DP committee.
Those selected to present papers will address a highly engaged and knowledgeable audience. In addition, papers presented at the conference become part of a comprehensive library of DP material spanning the last 21 years, all accessible through the DP website.
Abstracts must be received by April 30, 2017. Forward abstracts to Graeme Reid the 2017 Conference Technical Chair, at or submit online at
