One of the longstanding events for knowledge exchange among instrumentation and automation professionals and students is the Instrumentation and Automation Symposium for the Process Industries held annually at Texas A&M University. The next one, its 75th anniversary, will be held January 21-23, 2020. This symposium’s beginning dates back to 1946 as a short course on instrumentation applied in the process industries.

Instrumentation and Automation Symposium for the Process IndustriesI mention all this because Emerson’s James Beall is a member of steering committee for this symposium. He wants to make sure if you have expertise to share with other current & future instrumentation and automation professionals, that you submit an abstract by the rapidly approaching May 31 deadline.

The topic areas include instrument reliability, safety instrumented systems, new technology, cyber security and asset management. Here are some of the suggested abstract topics:

  • Instrumented Safeguards
    • Alarm Management
    • Safety Instrumented Systems
  • Technology Focus
    • Control System Migration
    • Smart Device Integration
    • Process Control & Optimization
    • Artificial Intelligence (Manufacturing 4.0)
  • Instrument Reliability
    • Methods & Tools
    • Case Studies
  • Regulatory Compliance
    • Control and Monitoring Systems
    • Maintenance Tools and Practices
    • Cybersecurity

That’s a wide breadth of knowledge areas from which to choose.

James and other Emerson experts have been active presenters at this symposium over the years and we’ve recapped several of their talks in these posts:

Time is short so act now to get your abstract submitted so that you can join in and learn from other deeply knowledgeable instrumentation and automation professionals and build your personal brand.
