Early-bird registration deadline for Water/Wastewater symposium.

The deadline for early-bird registration for the 2017 ISA Water/Wastewater and Automatic Controls (WWAC) Symposium has been extended to 1 July 2017. The original deadline was 15 June 2017.

ISA members who register by Saturday, 1 July will pay only $350—a discount of $150 off the regular rate. Additional registration discounts are available for AWWA, WEF and ITA members.

The 2017 ISA WWAC Symposium, to be conducted 8-10 August 2017  in Orlando (FL USA), is expected to draw between 200 and 250 attendees. The event is presented by the ISA Water/Wastewater Industries Division (WWID), in collaboration with the Florida Section of the AWWA (FSAWWA), the Florida Water Environment Association (FWEA), the WEF Automation and Info Tech Committee, and the Instrumentation Testing Association (ITA).

Some of the most highly regarded experts, including six distinguished speakers, will address the critical issues and challenges in automation facing the water/wastewater industry. Speakers and sessions will highlight the importance of instrumentation, SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) and automatic control applications to the safe, effective treatment and distribution of water, and the collection and treatment of wastewater.

Attendees will gain the latest news and trends in automation and control systems, instrumentation, cybersecurity, alarm management, and emerging technologies across the industry. Twenty-four technical presentations will be delivered on various aspects of automation and control.

In addition to an acclaimed keynote speaker and five notable guest speakers and the extensive technical program, the symposium will feature a hands-on instrumentation workshop (introduced for the first time), an exhibit showcase, a tour of a nearby water facility, high-value training opportunities and more.

The symposium also provides an excellent opportunity to gain valuable technical information, networking, professional development and continuing education credits (CEUs and PDHs).

“I continue to receive feedback that this event is truly one of the best of its kind due to the fact that the attendees and exhibitors are focused on solutions to real-world challenges and what’s actually experienced in on-the-job settings,” reports Kevin Patel, Director of the 2017 ISA Water/Wastewater Industry Division. “Adding to its value are the training opportunities, and the networking, professional development and continuing education credits.”

“Our secret is our focus,” says Patrick Gouhin, CEO and Executive Director at ISA. “Our annual ISA Water/Wastewater and Automatic Controls Symposium specifically caters to the needs of professionals involved with automation, instrumentation and SCADA in the municipal water and wastewater sectors. It is a unique niche event and we are proud of its increasing popularity. There is no other event like it in North America.”
