15th International Symposium on Wettability and Porous Media

23 – 25 October, 2023 || University of Wyoming, Laramie, WY, USA


ABOUT | The symposium will focus on descriptions, measurements, and models of reservoir wettability, pore-scale models of flow and wettability properties in permeable media, alterations of wettability and physical mechanisms that underlie these changes, and state-of-the-art core preservation and restoration techniques to improve quality of laboratory data.


SUBJECT AREAS | multiphase flow in porous media; wettability control; wettability restoration; spontaneous imbibition; crude oil/brine/rock interactions; wettability of shales; surface roughness; low salinity waterflooding; pore-scale modeling; enhanced/improved oil recovery; geologic carbon storage; hydrogen storage; special core analysis; core preservation and restoration; tar sands and heavy oil; asphaltenes; other
