Following the success of the previous IEA Greenhouse Gas Programme (IEAGHG) Summer Schools in Kloster Seeon, Germany 2007; Tigh-Na-Mara, Vancouver Island, Canada 2008; Lorne, Australia, 2009; Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway, 2010; Champaign, Illinois, 2011, and Beijing, China 2012, Nottingham, UK 2013 the 8th Summer School will be held in Austin, Texas, USA, hosted by The University of Texas at Austin, from the 6th-12th of July 2014.

Selected students will participate in this week long International Summer School with presentations and discussion led by international experts in the field of CCS.  The programme covers the full chain of CCS; providing up-to-date information in each field; including technical information on capture technologies, storage site selection, capacity and modelling, wellbore integrity and transport; as well as other issues such as regulations, health and safety, and public communication.

The week is fully funded (travel, accommodation, meals and the course) by our Series and Local Sponsors.


Where two presenters are listed for a presentation, the slides are linked from the presenters names.
