Industrial Automation & Control

At the heart of any industrial facility is its process control center, operating the plant and impacting profitability and efficiency. In light of recent industrial accidents and tragedies, Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) and safety in general are more in focus than ever before. This track will feature instruction and discussion on safety and SIS as well as essential topics such as model based control, PLCs, modern predictive control, loop tuning, simulation and situational awareness in process operations. You'll sit in the session room with published authors and legends in the field of automation who have specialized knowledge and vast real world experience to share with you.

    Industrial Automation and Control

    Moderator Brigadier General Rudolf Peksens, US Air Force (Retired), says: "I am pleased to be hosting a distinguished panel of cybersecurity experts who are working in a hands-on capacity to help secure our critical infrastructure from cyber attack. We'll discuss President Obama's executive order for the cybersecurity protection of industrial automation and control systems and the engagement that ISA and the Automation Federation have with the White House staff and NIST personnel in developing the framework to implement this order. Join us for a lively discussion on these vital issues from panelists who aren't regularly available to those of us working in automation and controls but whose influence will be felt by us all."

    Invited Panel Members:
    Samara Moore, National Security Council, Director for Critical Infrastructure;
    Eric Cosman, Dow Chemical
    Dr. Timothy Rudolph, USAF;
    James K. Wholey, DillworthPaxson LLP
