Updated: Turbo Lab Cancels Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia

The Turbomachinery Laboratory, part of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Stations (TEES) and Texas A&M University, has canceled the Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia (TPS) due to the complications brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

The event, scheduled for Sept. 14-17 in Houston, Texas, will be held in a virtual format from Dec. 7-10, said Eric Petersen, the Turbo Lab’s director.

“Above all, I have the utmost concern for the health and safety of the Turbomachinery Laboratory staff, our local city and contracted support teams, and the many potential participants of the symposia. In addition, uncertainties in the regional, national, and international situation over the duration of the calendar year make planning for a live or even hybrid event extremely difficult at best,” Petersen said in a statement. “These uncertainties include the economic environment of the industry, fluid administrative constraints at all levels, and the future travel policies of engineering companies both large and small, among many others.”

Petersen added that further details and updates related to canceled and virtual event will be addressed through upcoming communications from the Turbo Lab staff. Comments, questions and concerns can be sent to Petersen and the Turbo Lab staff.

The 2021 TPS will take place as scheduled from Dec. 13-16 in Houston, Texas.
