INTERNATIONAL OIL SPILL CONFERENCE
San Antonio, Texas The eighth biennial Oil Spill Conference — sponsored jointly by the U.S. petroleum industry and the federal government — will be held February 28 - March 3, 1983, at the San Antonio Convention Center, San Antonio, Texas.
More than 1,500 delegates and exhibitors from all over the world are expected to attend. More than 100 technical papers dealing with the prevention, behavior, control, and cleanup of oil spills will be presented. A number of films will also be shown.
The conference will stress prevention and control techniques; cleanup operations; contingency planning; new equipment development; environmental mapping; offshore operations; computer modeling; and socio-economiclegal aspects.
Poster presentations will add a new dimension to the conference. A Texas spill mapping project, aerial photo surveys of Alaska, and oil spill techniques in Australia are topics featured in the highly-visible poster program. Sponsors of the international conference are the American Petroleum Institute, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Coast Guard.
Papers at the conference will be delivered by representatives from 18 countries including Australia, Bahrain, Bermuda, Canada, France, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, the U.S., USSR, Venezuela, and West Germany.
One of the papers "Activities of the USSR Ministry of Merchant Marine Organizations in the field of Marine Environment Protection," by S.M. Nunuparov, to be presented by Oleg N. Khalimonov, will mark the first time the USSR has presented a paper at this conference, informed sources reported. The Soviet Government has had representatives at prior conferences, it was noted, Two special luncheons are planned. On Tuesday, March 1, at noon in the North Banquet Hall, Adm. James S.
