Day 1 of the 2017 Rice University Oil and Gas HPC Conference wrapped up yesterday. Here are 3 takeaways I extracted (in no specific order):
Rice University president David Leebron joined us for the day-end reception marking the 10th anniversary of the Oil & Gas HPC Conference. In part, he shared that events like this were perfectly aligned with one of his missions – namely, to re-invent the city of Houston as a tech hub. The collaboration and community that characterizes the annual Conference was held up as exemplary in doing just that – helping to place a different profile on one of the US’s largest urban centers.
Day 2 of the 2017 Conference is now underway. Please follow us on Twitter for real-time takeaways from the event. Tomorrow, we’ll share our quick takes for Day 2.
