CALL FOR PAPER: SECOND EDITION

THE EVENT: conferences and trade show under one roof

Following the successful premiere in 2017, the second edition of the Automation Instrumentation Summit will take place again at Castello di Belgioioso, in the outskirts of Pavia, on July 4-5, 2018.

THE CONFERENCE

To overcome the recession the market has to better understand the needs of end users and customers. Thanks to the presentation of case histories conference attendees will gain knowledge of technological advances in automation and applied process improvements.

Key of the conference success is not only to inform conference attendees about current technology but to bring awareness on how this technology has been applied in order to improve productivity, quality and sustainability within the industry. Abstract submissions should consider:

Which was the technological need?

Which was the productivity loss or improvement?

How the customer solved the problem?

Which was the final outcome?

Abstracts from end users, consultants, engineering companies and manufacturing companies are welcome in order to share automation knowledge for the mutual benefit of all! Our Advisory Board will select authors and speakers who can meet this challenge.

Abstracts will be selected looking after the technical content and the innovation, the relevance and the quality. Papers presenting case studies of customers are highly encouraged.

 

THEMES AND TOPICS

THEME 1: ADVANCES IN CONTROL SYSTEMS

In this session will be presented recent developments in control system strategies and advanced control, emphasizing process optimization and assessment of system integration, reducing energy and maintenance cost and improve efficiency.

THEME 2:  THE INDUSTRIAL INTERNET OF THING, 4.0, CYBERSECURITY

The Industrial Internet of Things and the 4.0 are revolutionizing the energy and process industry.

Companies are increasingly looking at how to harness their data across their supply chain by connecting their “things”: people, processes and assets. Huge investments have already been made in technology across operations. Now the key is to leverage these investments to create new efficiencies and cost savings. Prospective authors have to consider today’s big-data strategies, cybersecurity, real-time analytics, HSE and safety process together with other advances that can be powerful tools in optimizing IoT to make the operations of energy companies more efficient and more safe.

THEME 3: INSTRUMENTATION & ANALYSERS TECHNOLOGY EVOLUTION

Authors are invited to address key instrumentation, analyzers challenges and developments across the energy and process industries. Topics will cover diagnostics, health management practices, control system instrumentation, process measurement, signal analysis, condition and reliability based maintenance, safety process, fire and gas systems, test and measurement, failure analysis and their prevention and fault detection.

CONFERENCE PROGRAMME

Ladies and gentlemen, the CONFERENCE PROGRAMME for our first edition of the AUTOMATION INSTRUMENTATION SUMMIT is ready!

WELCOME to the Automation Instrumentation Summit!

There is no future without the past, for this reason we decided to have the summit in a historic place like Castello di Belgioioso, hoping that the conjunction with historical place and the “innovative” technology will be a great incentive for the future.

The first international edition of AUTOMATION INSTRUMENTATION SUMMIT, key event for the world of instrumentation, measurement systems and related activities, is scheduled for 5 and 6 July at the historic location of Castello di Belgioioso in the province of Pavia.

Description

The move to using open standards such as Ethernet, TCP/IP, and web technologies in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and process control networks has begun to expose these systems to the same cyberattacks that have wreaked so much havoc on corporate information systems.

This course provides a detailed look at how the ISA/IEC62443 standards can be used to protect your critical control systems. It also explores the procedural and technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments and those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments.
