|Event Date/Time: Oct 21, 2014 / 9:00 am - (GMT +4:30 hours)||End Date/Time: Oct 23, 2014 / 1:00 pm - (GMT +4:30 hours)|
Following the success of the 1st International Conference on Petroleum and Mineral Resources held in 2012, the organisers have decided to reconvene the Meeting in 2014, also in Koya.
Kurdistan is now emerging as one of the fastest developing areas in the Middle East, with its universities and research institutions playing a major role in the process. The region is rich in oil, gas and mineral resources, as well as underground water.
The Conference will offer international participants, including those from industry, the possibility of establishing contacts with organisations and professionals of this uniquely promising region. Academics will have occasion to develop research and training links with Koya and other universities in the region.
Koya University is particularly renowned for its Departments of Petroleum, Chemical and Geotechnical Engineering. Its proximity to important oil fields ensures close collaboration with the industry.
