This clip from the 2014 International Oil Spill Conference (IOSC) captures a series of interviews with participants talking about the value, importance and evolution of the IOSC over the years. It also highlights the advancements in oil spill technology, the spill response community that it supports, and IOSC’s global reach and impact.

The International Oil Spill Conference (IOSC) provides a vital forum for professionals from the international response community, private sector, government, and non-governmental organizations to come together to tackle the greatest challenges facing us with sound science, practical innovation, social engineering and imagination. This conference is an ideal environment for government agencies, contractors, researchers, industry, and other stakeholders to work together toward mutual objectives, through the exchange of ideas and lessons learned from actual spill responses and research around the world.

IOSC is part of a triennial series of events including Interspill and Spillcon.
