Speakers and topics at the event included:

  *Commercial and Industrial Insulation/Safety and Sustainability
    Commercial and industrial insulation can be a productive and safe asset.
    The choices for insulation selection are many and varied, relative to
    safety and sustainability. This presentation detailed the proper choices,
    their root reasons, and the long term impact to facility owners.
    Presented by Steve Oslica, director of marketing, Pittsburgh Corning
  *Simplify PID Tuning to Meet Process Objectives
    PID tuning and features determine process performance but the relationship
    is not well understood, leading to a divergence of opinions and a
    multitude of rules. This presentation unified major tuning rules to a
    simpler set that, when used with key PID options, can achieve a diverse
    spectrum of process objectives.
    Presented by Greg McMillan, senior fellow, Emerson Process Management
  *Electronic Design Trends in PLC-based Control Systems
    Equipment used for industrial control, such as the programmable logic
    controller (PLC), has increasing levels of connectivity, embedded
    processing, and functional safety. This presentation examined how these
    trends affect the design and functionality of various types of I/O
    modules, the building blocks of PLC-based control systems.
    Presented by Navin Kommaraju, engineering manager, Texas Instruments
  *I/O on Ethernet… What do I need to know?
    New Ethernet networks allow remote I/O to be collected using high-speed
    modular architecture supporting different I/O types and protocols.
    However, with the openness of Ethernet comes risk, demanding attention of
    network security.
