The sixth conference of the European Oil and Gas Archives Network (EOGAN) will be held at Maersk Headquarters, Copenhagen, on May 28th and 29th, 2015.

EOGAN is a network for people working to preserve and promote the use of oil and gas-related records - people from [1] oil and gas archives, business archives related to oil and gas, [2] museums with an interest in energy and [3] universities and research centres working on topics related to oil and gas. The EOGAN conference serves as a platform where persons working in these institutions can meet and exchange ideas in an informal manner.

The title of the 2015 Copenhagen meeting is:

“Tackling the new: energy archives and research beyond oil”

Papers are invited for the following sessions:

C. Capturing the new energies.

D. Oil & Gas archives portal.
Round table session on legal and technical requirements for joining a common portal for archival description and digitised items.

E. Energy History.
