The International Society of Automation (ISA) has announced that the 2009 Industrial Automation Safety and Security Symposium will take place 22-23 April 2009 at the Marriott Houston Hobby Airport.

The event was previously known as the ISA Safety Division Symposium, but has been renamed this year to better reflect the technical content of the programme.

This year’s symposium will address technical and business issues associated with identifying and mitigating safety hazards in industrial environments.

The event will also include additional technical focus on cyber security threats to industrial environments and design considerations engineers must consider when designing industrial processes and safety instrumented systems.

The symposium will provide an in-depth look at safety technologies and procedures.

The event is intended to create a forum where paper presentations and panel discussions transfer information from the leaders and experts on safety and control to industry professionals.

Technical theme areas include: safety instrumented systems; alarm management; industrial security – preventing unsafe conditions from security threats to automation systems and assets; and lowering cost of capitol and return on investment through safety and security projects.

Pre-registration is open until 15 April 2009.

All abstracts must be submitted by 13 February 2009.
