Don’t miss out on ONS!

ONS 2018 offers a wide range of opportunities for employees at UiS. Check out the programme and how to book your ticket to the conference arena and exhibition hall.

This year, the university will be present with its own UiS stand, and both students, researchers and management all the way up to the rector will attend.

There should be something worth seeing and listening to at ONS for many UiS employees, not just those who work with energy and technology.

Big conference

The conference programme at this year’s ONS boasts 600 speakers taking part in a wide range of programmes and sessions held on seven different arenas.

In addition to covering aspects of technology and innovation within the fields of oil, gas and renewable energy, topics also include geopolitics, digitalization, ICT and cyber security, management and much more.

There is a separate technical programme with sessions on for instance drilling, automated operations, oil and gas production in the Barents Sea, IOR and artificial intelligence.

The conference programme also features sessions taking place in the small lecture hall called Centre Court. The theme for this year’s Centre Court programme is The Future Society Lab.

Go to and scroll down to find the general programme on the left hand side under the menu item Conference as well as the programme for the Technical Sessions.

The Centre Court programme is available at

UiS at ONS

This year, the UiS has its own 42 square meter stand that serves as a hub for UiS employees. People from The National IOR Centre of Norway, UiS EVU, Future Energy Hub, CIAM, the Faculty of Science and Technology and the Department of Strategy and Communications will be present at the stand.

If you would like to invite partners and collaborators to our stand, please contact coordinator of UiS activities at ONS Vibecke Lykke Olsen in the Department of Strategy and Communications.


The UiS stand is located in spot no. 9424 in Hall 9, just outside the Centre Court.

The concept for the stand is «Sound of Science». The UiS has opened a podcast channel where each episode features an interview with a researcher that visitors can listen to at the stand. Several episodes will be recorded live at our stand during ONS.

These podcasts allow the UiS to interact with people outside the university world by communicating what we do and welcoming input from visitors to our stand.

The students

The university is also represented at ONS Young. There is free entry for all students at the event University Day on 28 August, and we hope that as many students as possible will take the time to participate.

The programme is available here.
