  • Authors who do not submit a manuscript and the associated publication forms by the stated deadline will be withdrawn from the program and will not be allowed to present per SPE’s No Paper, No Podium policy.

  • If accepted, your paper proposal may be published in conference media, including on the SPE website.

A Word About Commercialism

SPE has a stated policy against use of commercial trade names, company logos or text that is commercial in tone in the paper title, text, or presentation slides. Use of such terms will result in careful scrutiny by the Program Committee in evaluation paper proposals and the presence of commercialism in the paper will result in it being withdrawn from the program.

Plagiarism Check

We expect authors to credit all sources used in their writings and not to represent work of others as their own. Authors found to have plagiarized the work of another are subject to having their paper removed from the conference program and from OnePetro. Future submissions from authors found to have plagiarized will be scrutinized carefully. In the case of students found to be plagiarizing the work of others, SPE may inform the student’s university.

In an effort to further improve SPE’s technical quality standards, all submitted conference papers will be checked for plagiarism.


SPE is adopting ORCiD (Open Researcher and Contributer ID), a widely accepted unique identifier for authors, giving them control over their content and eliminating ambiguities. All SPE authors will be required to have an ORCiD.

Anyone can register an ORCiD ID for themselves for free using a simple online registration form on the website. The initial process takes less than 2 minutes. Once created SPE members can also add their ORCiD iD to their SPE member profile. 

If you already have an ORCiD ID, please add it to your SPE Member/Customer Profile. Login to and update your profile today!
