Automation authors recognised!


The International Society of Automation (ISA) honoured authors at an awards ceremony held during ISA’s 2016 Fall Leaders Meeting in September 2016.

“Each year, ISA is proud to recognize and thank all of the talented authors and contributors who help develop, review and deliver outstanding ISA publications and technical resources to automation and control professionals throughout the world,” says Susan Colwell, director of ISA’s Publications Department and Publisher of ISA’s InTech magazine.

Winners are recognized for their editorial contributions to a wide range of ISA publications, including ISA books; InTech, ISA’s bi-monthly magazine for automation and control professionals; and ISA Transactions, ISA’s bi-monthly professional journal dedicated to the science and engineering of measurement and automation.
