Just got back from a very good conference (well I got back, but my bags did not), the 69th Annual Symposium for the Process Industries at Texas A&M University. Thoroughly enjoyed the presentations on Safety Instrumented  Systems, Control Systems and many discussions on how to reflect these systems in an SAP environment. I felt that everyone there got a lot out of it.  Having experienced the full conference I would encourage you to participate in next years event. While covering a number of topics,one of the main focuses of this years conference was on safety instrumented systems, with a complete track on the topic. Very engineering oriented with lots of practical experience in the audience (who were quite willing to participate in the discussions).

The organization has just issued a call for papers for next years conference, and the abstracts are due by May 31, 2014. If you are interested in presenting a this conference you can upload your abstract by using the following link http://psc.tamu.edu/IS-phUploader15.php with the password 2015InstrSym.

Some of the focus areas for next years conference are:

  1. Partial Stroke Devices
  2. Safety Instrumented Systems
  3. Asset Management Systems
  4. Project Management
  5. Security
  6. Instrument Mechanical Integrity & Reliability
  7. Control Value Sizing
  8. Cyber Security
  9. LOPA
  10. Control Systems
  11. Safety Systems
  12. Inferential Sensors

If these topics are of interest please consider participating and pencil in the date on your calendar. Whether as a presenter or an attendee I hope to see you there next year.
