ISA announces Call for Papers for ISA Automation Week 2012
The Program Committee of ISA Automation Week 2012: Technology and Solutions event has issued a Call for Papers, inviting authors, experts, innovators, thought leaders and automation professionals to submit abstracts for presentation consideration at the conference to be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., September 24–27.
The Call for Papers for the event solicits abstracts that cover topics for the following tracks, as they relate to automation:
- Operational Excellence:
- Control Performance
- Asset Performance
- Human Performance
- Safety/Environmental Performance
- Technology Excellence:
Abstracts may be submitted for various presentation opportunities, including:
- Paper Session
- Panel Session
- Tutorial Session
- Poster Session
"Take this opportunity to present your findings, work, success stories or research at one of industry's most highly regarded technical conferences. In addition to its traditional technical program, the business side of operations—how to optimize and increase the efficiency and profitability of operations—will also be covered," said Invensys' Peter Martin, ISA Automation Week 2012 program committee chair.
"In a downturn or recovering economy, looking at optimizing operations should be at the top of every executive's list. Knowing that a loop-tuning process can reduce operational cost or maximize up-time can be the difference between profit and closing down. From a hands-on perspective, it's equally important to understand 'why' it's important to calibrate a certain way," Martin said.
The ISA Automation Week 2012 technical program is building upon its initial success and will continue to be a knowledge-focused event that will bring top professionals in automation and control together for an intensive technical conference and networking opportunity with key industry suppliers. Sessions will be educational and applications-based, rich in content and delivered by subject-matter experts in each field. Returning in 2012 is Technician Day, a program that offers content relevant to technicians and that ranges from basic to advanced topics.
An integrated solutions provider showcase floor and increased supplier participation will complement the technical program. Two 400-square-foot Technology Solutions Theaters on the showcase floor will integrate technical content via standards briefings, solutions provider technical presentations, and more.
More information about the Call for Papers, including a list of proposed topics, can be found at www.isaautomationweek.org/cfp.
