Early-bird registration for this ISA WWAC Symposium has been extended to 1 July 2014.

This year’s ISA Water/Wastewater and Automatic Controls Symposium (#WWAC) features 33 technical speakers. This 3-day symposium (5-7 August, 2014, Orlando, FL, USA) is focused on the challenges associated with automation and instrumentation in the water and wastewater sectors. It features 2 full days of presentations on each day, a tour of a local water/wastewater facility, a general reception, networking events, a poster session, and a supplier showcase.

The keynote, from Thomas W. Sigmund, P.E., Executive Director of NEW Water, is entitled A Vision for the Water Resources Utility of the Future (Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at 8:15am) and there will be a forum session to further discuss this topic.

Keynote abstract:
Thomas Sigmund
The Water Resources Utility of the Future (UOTF) Task Force was created by the (US) National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), the Water Environment Federation (WEF) and the Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) in 2012 to bring together industry experts to identify opportunities and challenges faced by clean water agencies and to identify forward looking solutions, some of which are being implemented today. The UOTF will transform both the way traditional wastewater utilities view themselves and how they will manage their operations and relationships with their communities and contributions to local economies. The Blueprint presents a vision for the future of clean water agencies as well as a series of actions to deliver the vision.

Originally technical engineering entities, today’s utilities now embrace sophisticated management approaches and are transforming themselves into managers of valuable resources, partners in local economic development and a member of the watershed community seeking to deliver maximum environmental benefits at the least cost to society. This presentation will present a vision for these new utilities and explore how instrumentation and automation are key to delivering on that vision.

Register by June 15 to get early-bird pricing for the 2014 ISA water/wastewater and automatic controls symposium. Register for only $325 – special early-bird ISA member rate ($125 discount).

• Please note that ISA headquarters has been doing an upgrade of their online registration system.
If there are any problems with the online registration, the paper forms should be used or call ISA customer service directly at +1 919-549-8411. 
Forms can also be sent in via fax to +1 919-549-8288.
There will also be a number of guest and invited speakers including Tom DeLaura, Chair, WEF Automation and Information Technology Committee & Vice-President, Eramosa Engineering International and Michael Sweeney, Florida Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) & Deputy Executive-Director, Toho Water Authority. Last year DeLaura was named ISA’s Water and Wastewater Industry Division Member of the Year.

The 2014 symposium will therefore offer an unique opportunity for automation, instrumentation and SCADA professionals in the water and wastewater sectors to share ideas, network and earn continuing education credits.

The event includes two full days of technical speakers/presentations, networking events, a poster session, and a supplier showcase. A tour of a local wastewater treatment facility, and two short courses on SCADA Cyber Security and Troubleshooting Instrumentation & Control Systems are optional.
