Authors, welcome to our conference. Every spring ISA POWID and EPRI host this technical conference specifically dedicated to Automation and Instrumentation in the Power Industry. Over the years many innovations in automation have been presented at this conference. The forum has rigid non-commercial requirements and peer review for all technical papers assuring high quality technical content, which sets this conference apart from most other industry conferences. This guideline is intended to provide you information regarding the format and submission of your technical paper and presentations. If you have any questions, please contact your session developer who is also listed on the program.

Paper, R&R and Presentation Submittals:
Please submit all of your documents for the conference to your session developer with a copy to the program co-chairs, Jim Batug and Aaron Hussey (firstname.lastname@example.org and AHussey@EPRI.com). Due to the large volume of email transmittals being handled by our conference volunteers, please assist us by applying the following email procedures:
· Prefix your email subject with your paper number (P0xx) and your last name followed by the purpose of the email (e.g. P025-Smith, Draft Paper Submittal or P025-Smith, Draft Presentation Submittal, etc.)
· Prefix the name of attached files with your paper number (P0xx) and your last name followed by the type of submittal (e.g. draft or final paper, draft or final presentation, or R&R) and a subset of the paper title (e.g. P025-Smith-DraftPaper-HumanFactorCons or P025-Smith-DraftPres-HumanFactorCons, etc.)
Applying this procedure will stream line the processing of your documents and reduce the risk of lost or misplaced documents. We have very tight schedule requirements to complete the technical paper peer reviews and meet the CD publication deadline of April 1st and the subsequent presentation deadline of April 15th, so your cooperation is very much appreciated.
Technical Paper Guidelines:
Draft technical paper submissions are evaluated by a peer review process prior to acceptance for conference publication and presentation. Draft paper submissions may be Accepted, Accepted with Comments, Conditionally Accepted with Comments, or Rejected with Comments.
Authors are requested to resolve comments on drafts prior to final submission. It is important that the draft be submitted on or as soon as possible after the above Draft paper submission date.
There are three ISA documents that provide the guidelines for preparation of your technical paper:
It is a firm ISA policy and the policy of this conference that content cannot be commercial in nature and cannot represent a sales pitch for a product, service, or company. Please remember that your colleagues are interested in your technical-based solutions to industrial problems. Identification of an author's affiliation in the title and one mention of a trade name or trademark in the body of the paper or presentation are acceptable.
Final technical papers are published and distributed in this years conference proceedings and on ISAs web site provided the final paper and completed R&R form have been submitted prior to the deadline of Mar 20th.
Papers received after the publication deadline will be reviewed
Presentations are not included on the conference CD. All presentation must apply the ISA POWID/EPRI Microsoft® PowerPoint® template available from the ISA POWID conference web site. Identification of an author's affiliation in the title and one mention of a trade name or trademark in the body of the presentation are acceptable.
Draft presentations must be submitted for review by Mar. 6th and final presentations submitted by April 15th. Similar to the review of papers, draft presentations are reviewed for non-commercial content and to ensure the use of the conference template. Authors may distribute the presentation at the session, provided the presentation has been approved through the review process.
PowerPoint Only Presentations:
The conference also accepts presentations without technical papers that are relevant to power plant Instrumentation and Control topics. Please review the guidelines for Technical Papers and Presentations as they also apply to PowerPoint Only Presentations. Although these presentations do not go through the same peer review process as does a technical paper, the ISA POWID program committee may similarly accept or reject the presentation if it does not conform to the Guidelines.
