International Oil Sands Tailings Conference

Bringing together experts and interested individuals to address tailings technology and management in Alberta's Oil Sands Industry, the International Oil Sands Tailings Conference (IOSTC) offers the most recent developments in oil sands tailings and management to the international community through invited speakers and select technical presentations.

The University of Alberta Geotechnical Centre has been monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 and made the difficult decision to postpone this year's International Oil Sands Tailings Conference (IOSTC 2020). We felt that it was the right choice to ensure everyone's safety and especially given the extraordinary hardships being felt among industry and consultants due to the pandemic. This conference will be held in late 2022. Thank you for your understanding at this time.
