I received this request today, from the Standards and Practices Board at ISA: 

On behalf of the Executive Committee of the 2013-2014 ISA Standards & Practices Board: Eric Cosman, VP; Nick Sands, VP elect; and Donald Dunn, Past VP:

ISA Automation Week 2013 is planned for November 5-7 in Nashville, Tennessee. As Safety is one of four main overriding themes, the Executive Committee is making a special request to those of you on these two key committees (which are expected to meet in conjunction with the event) to bring forward your ideas, case studies, what has worked (and maybe what has not), and related information and share them with your professional peers.

This will be the first year the technical conference will be held as a standalone event without an exhibit component. As such, it will be a great opportunity for ISA members to really focus on the sharing of information in their areas of expertise and interest.

The deadline to submit abstracts for presentation consideration is 2 April 2013. Details about the Call for Papers can be found at:

Please do give serious consideration to submitting an abstract. With the range of skills and experience represented on the two committees, there are without doubt many timely and vital stories that can be presented. 

ISA is trying something new, instead of resurrecting the zombie. I stand corrected. This is a true symposium, without an exhibit component. I encourage you all, with a safety interest, to attend. I'm planning to, this time.
