It has been a privilege for The Texas A&M Turbomachinery Laboratory to organize and present the Middle East Turbomachinery Symposium biennially since 2011. This event has been made possible through major funding and logistical support from host sponsor Qatar Petroleum. Unfortunately, QP has informed Turbo Lab that financial support for a 2017 METS is not possible at this time, therefore this event has been indefinitely postponed.

All technical papers for METS symposia will remain available on this website under PROCEEDINGS. Any news or further developments for future METS symposia will be announced through the Turbomachinery Laboratory email newsletters. To receive Turbo Lab announcements and news, sign up for email notifications here.

The Turbomachinery Laboratory will continue organizing and hosting the very successful Turbomachinery and Pump Symposia, now in its 44th year, held annually in Houston, Texas as well as the inaugural Asia Turbomachinery and Pump Symposium to be held in February 2016 at the Marina Bay Sands Resort in Singapore.
