To overcome the recession, the market has to better understand the needs of end users, and customers. Through the presentation of case histories, conference attendees will gain knowledge of technological advances in automation and applied process improvements.
Key to the success of the conference is to not just 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 industry. Abstract submissions should consider – What was the technology need? What was the productivity loss or improvement? How the customer solved the problem? What 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 members of ISA will select authors and presenters that can meet this challenge.
SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT
ABSTRACTS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY FRIDAY 10 FEBRUARY 2017
To facilitate the review of abstracts and selection of potential speakers, please do not delay submission of your abstract, the sooner the better!
Please send your presentation in PowerPoint or pdf format to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The main body of the abstract should be between 150 and 300 words and in “understandable” English. Remember, not everyone at the conference will have your technical expertise, please refrain from using too much technical jargon to enable participants to benefit from your idea, application, or experience!
Please note that in submitting your abstract you are indicating your willingness to let us use it before during and after the event.
Please make sure the author and presenter are identified, and inform us as soon as possible if any changes occur. Note: Travel and accommodation for presenters is the responsibility of presenters.
Remember to indicate: email, name, surname, company name, telephone and skype address where available.
You will be informed about acceptance of your paper by March 2017.
THEMES AND TOPICS
THEME 1: ADVANCES IN CONTROL SYSTEMS
These sessions will present recent developments in control system strategies and advanced control, emphasizing process optimization and assessment of system integration.
THEME 2: CONTROL AND PLANT COMMUNICATION
Control technologies have witnessed, in the last two decades, a radical evolution in both design and production methodologies. Thanks to the extensive use of digital technologies, the introduction of new and revolutionary communication and sensors’ techniques in process plant management and predictive maintenance will increase productivity, quality and reliability.
THEME 3: 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” – the people, processes and assets. Huge investments have already made in technology across operations – now the key is to leverage these investments to create new efficiencies and cost savings. In inviting papers, we would like prospective authors to consider today’s big-data strategies, cybersecurity, real-time analytics, HSE and process safety and other advances can be powerful tools in optimizing IIoT to make the operations of Energy companies more efficient, more secure and more safe.
THEME 4: INSTRUMENTATION & ANALYZERS TECHNOLOGY EVOLUTION
Authors are invited to address key instrumentation and analyzers challenges and developments across Energy and Process Industries. Topics will cover diagnostics, health management practices, control system instrumentation, process measurement, signal analysis, condition and reliability based maintenance, process safety, fire and gas systems, test and measurement, failure analysis and prevention, fault detection and more.
THEME 5: BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT
Speakers are welcome from within and outside the automation and control sector who have insights to share or opinions to voice concerning any aspect of the strategic, business growth, market trends and forecasts of today’s fast changing automation and control industries. Suppliers are investing a lot of time trying to fulfill all the end users and EPC procedures of qualification. Would be possible to standardized categories and qualification process? Probably yes!
