The ISA Process Measurement and Control Division and the ISA Safety and Security Division Symposium are Teaming up in October 2014!
The ISA Process Measurement and Control Division, the ISA Safety and Security Division with added content from the Chemical and PetroleumDivision, are teaming up to bring a world-class program, exhibit, and networking event to Houston, Texas, in October 2014.
Conference tracks, featuring sessions led by the world’s leading experts, will cover critical instrumentation, communications, control systems, safety and security topics. Engineers, technicians, and plant managers from the oil and gas, refining, chemical, petrochemical, and other process industries will benefit from this three-day intensive event. Social events, keynote presentations, panel discussions, training courses, standards committee meetings and an expanded exhibit featuring leading companies will round out the event.
“The Houston market has so many experienced process professionals across many different industries, and we all have critical interests in common, like instrumentation, communication networks, and control systems,” said Fateh (TJ) Tajani, Process Measurement and Control Division Symposium General Chair. “Our friends in the ISA Safety and Security Division are developing a top-notch program featuring sessions on safety instrumented systems, cybersecurity, and more – and these are topics that our process automation community sees as instrumental to their operational success.”

IC39C-Introduction to the Management of Alarm Systems
This course focuses on the key activities of the alarm management lifecycle provided in the ANSI/ISA18.00.02 standard, Management of Alarm Systems for the Process Industries. The activities include the alarm philosophy development, alarm rationalization, basic alarm design, advanced alarm techniques, Human Machine Interface (HMI) design for alarms, monitoring, assessment, management of change, and audit.
IC32C- Introduction to Industrial Automation Security and the ANSI/ISA99 (IEC 62443) Standards
Understanding how to secure factory automation, process control, and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) networks is critical if you want to protect them from viruses, hackers, spies, and saboteurs. This seminar teaches you the basics of the ISA/IEC 62443 standards and how these can be applied in the typical factory or plant. In this seminar, you will be introduced to the terminology, concepts, and models, as well as the element of creating a cybersecurity management system will be explained along with how these should be applied to industrial automation and control systems.
Which technology should be used (electric, electronic, or programmable)?
What level of redundancy is appropriate (single, dual, or triple)?
How often should systems be tested (monthly, quarterly, yearly, or once per shutdown)?
What about field devices (technology, level of redundancy, and test intervals)?
Debate continues as to how one even makes these choices (past experience, qualitative judgment, quantitative analysis, etc.). This seminar will cover the basics of what needs to be done in the design and selection of safety systems.
IC85C- Industrial Wireless Systems
Wireless systems and wireless technologies have advanced to the point where stable, robust, and secure networks are ready for deployment in industrial settings. As such, professionals crossing many disciplines (e.g., process, automation, IT, controls) come face-to-face with understanding the implications and opportunities that such wireless networks may provide to them and their plant. This course will cover the most relevant details associated with industrial wireless systems with an emphasis towards how the various technological choices coexist, interoperate, and interact with each other.
