Gerald Cockrell, ISA Automation Week Technical program co-chairman, said, This is a new event and we’re looking for cutting-edge, groundbreaking, in-depth papers with a heavy educational focus that will give conferees an edge in their workplaces or careers. We want conferees to walk away from Automation Week with insights, knowledge, and product updates that will make their jobs more efficient, make their plants safer, more secure, and more productive. Our exhibit area is an important part of that vision, as the onsite technical exhibit personnel will complement the theory presented during sessions with applications and real-world products, he continued.
A groundbreaking new feature that will assist attendees in navigating through the dozens of options within the program is ISA’s new professional tool, PathFinder. Five professional groups, or paths, offer a unique combination of sessions that will enable attendees to shape a learning experience suited to their individual job functions and professional goals. The five paths are: Technicians, Engineers, Management, Marketing, and Academia/R&D/Scientists.
