Deadlines for the ISA Communications Division two Spring Symposia are quickly approaching.
The first event this April in Troy (Detroit) Michigan is a joint offering with the ISA100 WG16 committee that will be two half-days focused on Wireless applications in the Factory environment. Key topics at this event include: Wireless for Factory Automation User Requirements, Secure Wireless Sensor Networks,
IEEE P1451.1.4 and Smart RFID use for Factory Automation, and Emerging Wireless Technologies for Factory Automation.
The second event is the ISA Communications Division Spring Symposium June 5-7 in La Jolla California that will include one track on Passive Wireless Sensor Technologies to follow up the successful event held last July in Houston. The Symposium will start with a 1-day introduction to industrial communications workshop facilitated by some of the industry’s leaders in the areas of cybersecurity, wireless, fieldbus and Ethernet communications and additional in depth papers in each of these areas will form part of the program which is where you can help with your contribution.
