ISA’s 2019 Process Industry Conference to shed light on issues in the energy processing and process manufacturing industries

August 26, 2019 - Engineers, automation professionals, and oil and gas representatives have the opportunity to join a conversation where industry leaders discuss and present solutions to the most pressing challenges facing our changing world.

ISA’s 2019 Process Industry Conference (PIC) is taking place 4-6 November at the Westin Houston, Memorial City. This is an event for those who wish to understand the demands and find answers to problems in energy processing and process manufacturing. Whether the participant is a business owner, industry leader, or chemical professional in the engineering and manufacturing sectors, this event intends to spark thought-provoking questions and maybe even prompt them to take action.

This year’s featured speakers include several experts from a variety of industries. Dr. Dennis Ong is a TEDx speaker, architect, and head of the 5G Mobility at Verizon Smart Communities. Previously, he was chief architect and director at Nokia where he led the systems engineering team for the loT IMPACT platform, which, received the “Best loT Innovation for Mobile Networks” award at Mobile World Congress. At Alcatel-Lucent his team collaborated with three start-ups creating a highly scalable analytics video optimization platform that served 50 million people worldwide.

Another distinguished speaker is Dr. John Thomas, Executive Director of MIT’s Engineering Systems Lab. He has researched engineering mistakes, design flaws, and human error to develop more effective methods to prevent them. He teaches classes on system safety, cybersecurity, system engineering software, digital hardware engineering, human factors, and system architecture. His work has been adopted throughout the industry, including techniques for developing requirements, anticipating unexpected or dysfunctional interactions in engineered systems, analyzing software-intensive systems, human-centered design processes, and others.

PIC 2019 will give sponsors and exhibitors the opportunity to meet with a variety of industry decision-makers searching for solutions, products, services, and partners they can trust.
