He has published >250 journal papers and >300 conference papers on topics relating to his keynote speech. He won multiple awards including IMechE’s ‘Donald J. Groen’ outstanding paper prize in 2016, IChemE’s ‘Global Award for Best Research Project’ in 2018, the Engineers without Borders ‘Chill Challenge’ in 2020, and received Imperial College President’s Award for Research Excellence in 2017.
Topic of Keynote: State-Of-The-Art Laser-Diagnostic Measurement Techniques Applied To Multiphase Flows
Dr. Cem Sarica
University Tulsa, USA
Dr. Cem Sarica, F.H. “Mick” Merelli/Cimarex Energy Professor of Petroleum Engineering at the University of Tulsa (TU), is currently serving as the director of three industry-supported consortia at the TU: Fluid Flow, Paraffin Deposition, and Horizontal Well Artificial Lift Projects. His research interests are production engineering, multiphase flow in pipes, flow assurance, and horizontal wells. He holds BS and MS degrees in petroleum engineering from Istanbul Technical University and a Ph.D. degree in petroleum engineering from TU. He has previously served in various SPE Committees, and he is currently serving as a member of the SPE Production and Facilities Advisory Committee. He was a member of the SPE Journal Editorial Board between 1999 and 2007. He also served as Associate Editor of JERT of ASME between 1998 and 2003. He is a member of the Technical Advisory Committee of British Hydrodynamics Research Group (BHRg) Multiphase Production Conferences. He served as the Technical Program Chair of BHRg 2008 and 2012 Conferences. He is the recipient of the 2010 SPE International Production and Operations Award. He is recognized as a Distinguished Member of SPE in 2012. Cem received SPE John Franklin Carll Award and SPE Cedric K. Ferguson Certificate in 2015.
Topic of Keynote: A Comprehensive Review of Pseudo-Slug Flow
Dr. Gretar Tryggvason
Johns Hopkins University, USA
Gretar Tryggvason is the Charles A. Miller, Jr. Distinguished Professor at the Johns Hopkins University and the head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He received his PhD from Brown University in 1985 and was on the faculty of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor until 2000, when he moved to Worcester Polytechnic Institute as the head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Between 2010 and 2017, he was the Viola D. Hank professor at the University of Notre Dame and the chair of the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering.
Professor Tryggvason is well known for his contributions to computational fluid dynamics; particularly the development of methods for computations of multiphase flows and for pioneering direct numerical simulations of such flows. He served as the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Computational Physics 2002-2015, is a fellow of APS, ASME and AAAS, and the recipient of several awards, including the 2012 ASME Fluids Engineering Award and the 2019 ASTFE Award.
Topic of Keynote: Numerical Simulations of Complex Multiphase Flows: Opportunities and Challenges
