2018 International Symposium to be held between 23rd -28th October 2018
This symposium serves as the crossroads for process safety where industry, academia, government agencies and other stakeholders come together to discuss critical issues of research in process safety. Experts from around the world will gather as part of this two and a half-day symposium, to share the latest information on the hottest topics aimed at making the process industry a safer place. The 2018 International Symposium of the Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center will be held at the College Station Hilton Conference Center on October 23-25, 2018.
74th Annual Instrumentation Symposium for the Process Industries January 22-24, 2019
The first Instrumentation Symposium took place in 1946, and was called a Short Course on Instrumentation for the Process Industries. What could not be envisioned at that time were the advances and the rapid changes in the field of instrumentation. Many industry objectives may still be the same, but the tools used for instrumentation and control continue to evolve. Each year, the Symposium is arranged into current critical areas of instrumentation. Topics include: Instrument Reliability, Safety Instrumented Systems, New Technology, Cyber Security and Asset Management. The Instrumentation Symposium for the Process Industries, now in its 74th year, continues to educate professionals and students in the instrumentation industry. At the symposium, practical technical papers as well as vendor exhibits are presented with a focus on education. Over the years, the Symposium has grown in both stature and attendance, with over 520 attendees at the 2018 Symposium.
