I just saw the email nudge about the Emerson Exchange call for presentations deadline, which is March 21st this year. The Emerson Exchange will be October 24-28 in Nashville, Tennessee USA. Getting your workshop or short course accepted means having your registration fees waived.

It is also a chance to share your expertise and lessons learned with your process automation peers. The email enumerates a few more “what’s in it for you” ideas:

  • Opportunity to showcase your company and your successful practices
  • Career development: Delivering formal technical presentations to large, qualified audiences
  • Opportunity to network with other strategic users and Emerson personnel
  • Opportunity to win awards and recognition (inside your company and within industry)
  • Good step to other technical publishing, presentation, & forum opportunities

The Emerson Exchange board provides a few tips on how to increase your chances of getting your presentation submittal approved:

  • Have an end user author and presenter with real world examples
  • Include financial impact – Quantifiable Business Results
  • Use technical ‘how to’ explanations
  • Explain unique solutions to difficult problems
  • Don’t include proprietary information, trade secrets, etc.
  • Avoid negatively referring to other solutions, vendors, etc.
  • Refrain from ‘marketing hype’
  • Ensure that your abstract accurately explains your proposed presentation, and then ensure that your presentation matches your abstract!

More than 300 workshops and short courses will be selected in these tracks established by the board:

  • Business Intelligence & Management
  • Wireless Applications
  • DeltaV and Ovation System Applications
  • Emerson Product / Service Updates
  • Process Optimization
  • Asset Optimization / Maintenance & Reliability
  • Control Systems Modernization
  • Project Management & Engineering Tools
  • Safety Instrumented Systems
  • Valve Applications
  • Instrumentation Applications

There you have it. Everything you need to get your abstract submitted by March 21st. Oops, except the link to the abstract submittal page.

If you are with a process manufacturer and doing anything cool around collaboration or social media, I’d love to collaborate on a workshop with you. Connect with me through one of the right side contact methods, and let’s brainstorm an abstract to submit before the deadline.
