International automation and control symposium for Ireland

This year the ISA’s international Food and Pharmaceutical symposium is being held in Ireland, and its first time to be held outside of North America. The symposium will bring together experts, suppliers, and end users in a two-day symposium of presentations and panel discussions.

The year 1916 is a special year in Irish history as it marks the centenary of the rebellion which led to self Government some six years later. Many events are planned through the country and the symposium is scheduled for the few days before the national holiday of St Patrick’s Day.

The symposium will focus on how Automation is used to address the impact of increased regulation, manufacturing costs, and security threats related to the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Speakers will present on the latest trends, and provide case-studies which demonstrate the effective integration and use of Automation to solve these challenges.

The 2016 FPID Symposium will provide the very latest news, trends and projections about products and processes—direct from leading industry and solution experts. Government officials have been invited to deliver updates and provide clarity on regulatory requirements. A keenly focused conference agenda will explore the critical challenges and how best to solve them through innovations in process automation, and new strategies, products and techniques in control, optimization, measurement, and serialization.

Prospective presenters are invited to submit original contributions on all aspects of Automation including but not limited to the following topics. Emphasis should be on practical contributions rather than theoretical presentations.

• Cybersecurity
• Data Integrity and Security
• Alarm Management
• Future of Automation / Internet of Things
• Usage of Cloud for Automation
• Automation Challenges for a Greenfield Biotech Facility
• Instrumentation: Calibration, Wireless
• Batch Management & MES
• ISA Standards
• Process Optimization and Rationalization
• Serialization (Pharmaceutical)
• Track and Trace (Food and Beverage)
• Process Control
• Digitization - Paperless Manufacturing
• Manufacturing Regulations
