ISA Automation Week Advance Program

June 17, 2012 - The International Society of Automation (ISA) announced the Advance Program for ISA Automation Week: Technology and Solutions Event.

ISA Automation Week is an annual, international conference that will take place 24-27 September 2012, at the Orange County Convention Center, West Concourse in Orlando, Florida, USA. The Advance Program provides the technical conference overview, as well as:

  • information on keynote speeches by Greg B. Hale, chief safety officer and vice president, Worldwide Standards and Auditing with Walt Disney Parks & Resorts; and Travis Capps, vice president of Energy and Gases, Valero Energy Corporation; and a general session featuring a panel of supplier and end-user executives who will speak on the future of automation
  • previews of the four conference tracks centered around operational excellence: control performance; asset performance; human performance; and safety and environmental performance
  • previews of the two technology tracks: wireless and security
  • information on poster sessions and Technology Solutions Theaters
  • a listing of participating solutions provider showcase participants
  • a preview of Technician Day
  • networking receptions, special events and optional Disney tours
  • the ISA Fall Training Institute schedule
  • registration options and more

“The ISA Automation Week technical program has been developed to demonstrate the value industrial companies can realize by driving operational excellence through their automation talent, systems and technologies,” said Dr. Peter Martin, ISA Automation Week 2012 program chair and vice president of Invensys Operations Management.

“Each of the four operational excellence tracks is designed to demonstrate how the effective application of industrial automation can drive significant business value. Industrial business executives are at a loss as to how to gain continuous business value improvements from their industrial assets,” Dr. Martin continued.

“Our two technology tracks cover the critical topics in mainstream media today—cybersecurity threats, infrastructure security, worldwide threats, governmental industrial security; and standards. These issues are the future of manufacturing; public safety relies on having knowledgeable, prepared professionals on hand to combat any security concerns that may arise,” concluded Dr. Martin.
