Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC)

Tampa, FL  |  May 22-24, 2018

The Special Operations Forces Industry Conference is the premier venue for the SOF community to interact with industry and to collaborate on the challenges, initiatives and way-ahead in delivering the most cutting-edge capabilities into the hands of SOF operators.  

SOFIC provides educational sessions, demonstrations, interaction with exhibitors and many networking opportunities across the SOF community.  SOFIC is the single most important opportunity to continue developing, nurturing and exercising the growing network across industry, government and academia and international partners.  By leveraging the depth, breadth and diversity of this network the SOF community the SOF community can boost its velocity, multiply its iterations and increase the variety of capabilities to meet the changing demands of its operators.

For industry participants SOFIC provides a multitude of significant opportunities for networking, business intelligence, brand promotion and product demonstration.  Participants are offered detailed insights and tips on how to do business with the U.S. Special Operations Command, and information on what capabilities are most desired by the community.

The features of SOFIC include keynote speakers, led by U.S. Special Forces Command, panel discussions and educational breakout sessions, exhibits and demonstrations, the USSOCOM Marketplace, two Senior Industry Executive Forums, and a Wednesday evening reception.

EPRI 12th International Conference on Cycle Chemistry in Fossil and Combined Cycle Plants

Arlington, VA  |  June 25-29, 2018

Cycle Chemistry is widely recognized as an important consideration for ensuring high standards of availability, reliability and efficiency of steam and water touched components in the cycles of utility fossil fueled power generating systems. Chemistry related damage in fossil steam generators and steam turbines may result in component failures that require expensive and sometimes lengthy forced outages. This international conference will once again provide the industry with the latest information, developments and field experience in all aspects of fossil plant cycle chemistry as applied to conventional plants and combined cycle units with heat recovery steam generators (HRSG). The major conference theme is to review, document and transfer technology on the current understanding of the chemistry requirements of fossil and combined cycle units under all operating conditions and identify those areas where better information is needed. Changing economic conditions and increases in non-dispatchable renewable generation have led to dramatic increases in cyclic operation and unit layup. The chemistry issues resulting from this shift in fossil generating asset operation are a primary focus of the 2018 edition of the conference. Presentations will be given by recognized chemistry experts representing utility organizations, equipment manufacturers and consulting and research organizations from around the world.
