Registration opens for ISA’s 2016 Water/Wastewater and Automatic Controls Symposium

Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA (19 May 2016) — The International Society of Automation (ISA) today announces the opening of registration for its 2016 Water/Wastewater and Automatic Controls (WWAC) Symposium, which will be held 2-4 August 2016 at the Wyndham Lake Buena Resort in Orlando, Florida USA.

This highly targeted event—focusing entirely on the challenges associated with automation and instrumentation in the water and wastewater sectors—includes an extensive, two-day program of technical presentations; a tour of a local wastewater treatment plant; numerous networking events; a poster session; and a supplier showcase. Register today!

Presented by the ISA Water and Wastewater Industries Division, in collaboration with the Florida AWWA Section, the WEF Automation and Info Tech Committee, the Florida Water Environment Association, and the Instrumentation Testing Association, the WWAC Symposium helps professionals in the water and wastewater industries understand how instrumentation, SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition), and automatic control applications are vital to the treatment and distribution of water; the collection and treatment of wastewater; and the management of stormwater.

Two technical tracks will be conducted:

  • Track 1 - Sessions to cover instrumentation, system integration, automation, plant case studies, new technologies, and optimization
  • Track 2 – Sessions to cover high-performance automation for operations and maintenance, SCADA, HMI, human factors, and alarm management

Symposium attendees will receive 2.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or 20 Professional Development Hours (PDHs).

Take a minute to review the conference brochure. Exhibition and sponsorship opportunities are available.

The opportunity to gain valuable ISA training

Attendees also will have the opportunity to take one of two high-value ISA courses during the event: Application of Industrial Wireless Systems - SP25C (a one-day course to be held 1 August), and Using the ISA/IEC 62443 Standards to Secure Your Control System – IC32 (a two-day course to be held 1-2 August). Given that space for the two courses is limited, individuals are encouraged to register soon.
