Applications in Automation Conference

This important conference is rather alarmingly (for this European) called the ISA Mid-Atlantic Technical Conference. But don't worry, the venue is in Wilmington, (DE US), rather then on a ship moored somewhere in the Saragossa Sea. Apparently the states on the east coast of America generally located between New England and the South are called the Mid Atlantic States.

Technical Conference Topics
* Instrumentation (Wired, Fieldbus and Wireless)
* Regulatory and Advanced Regulatory Control
* Advanced Control
* Safety Instrumented Systems
* Alarm Management
* HMI Design
* Control System Networks and Integration
* Cyber Security
* Energy Management
* Emissions Monitoring

So put away those snorkels and mark you diaries now to attend the Applications in Automation Conference! This three-day conference features several of ISA’s most popular training courses, a technical conference with paper presentations on today’s hottest automation topics, a product and solutions showcase, and an evening event for networking with your peers. Dates are March 23 - 25, 2010.

It comprises a one day conference (24th March) preceded and followed by training courses. These are the incomparable ISA courses. On the 23rd the courses are:
  • Alarm Management - Introduction to the Management of Alarm Systems (IC39C)
  • Wireless - Industrial Wireless Systems (IC85C)
And on the 25th they are:
  • Safety Systems - Safety Instrumented Systems—The Must Know for Implementation (EC50C)
  • Security - Introduction to Industrial Automation Security and the ANSI/ISA99 Standards (IC32C)
The day long conference in between comprises papers and lunch is included. Attendees may choose to attend the conference only. Thanks to the miracle of modern technology they can still sign up and virtually *see* the one-day technical conference online. They will be streaming the entire day's conference live and registrands will be able to see the presenter and his powerpoint presentation right on their desktops.

So not only is this conference not out on the waves but you don't even have to go there to attend. So why not splash out the few dollars and learn more about automation.
