Home > Press > ISA Announces Five Training Courses at 54th IIS Symposium in Florida

Abstract:
Sponsored by the Aerospace Industries, Test Measurement, and Process Measurement and Control Divisions of ISA, the 54th International Instrumentation Symposium will feature five training courses, innovative paper presentations, and a forum for discussion of instrumentation techniques. The symposium will be held 5-8 May at the Hilton Pensacola Beach Gulf Front in Pensacola Beach, Florida.

ISA Announces Five Training Courses at 54th IIS Symposium in Florida

Research Triangle Park, NC | Posted on March 7th, 2008

The five training courses will be held 5 May and include three ISA training courses - "Fiber Optic Sensors," "Overview of Wireless Technology," and "Industrial Flow Measurement Overview." "Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty" and "Selection and Application of Process Measurement Sensors," two non-ISA courses, will also be held during the event.

"Fiber Optic Sensors" will be taught by Romeo Velarde. The seminar will show students the operation, implementation limits, and practical benefits associated fiber optic sensors. "Overview of Wireless Technology," with industry expert instructor Wayne Manges, will study the implementation limits and practical benefits associated with wireless technologies. Wireless protocols, frequencies, system implementations, and integration into the industrial environment are examined in this seminar.

"Industrial Flow Measurement Overview," taught by Jude Golla, presents applications of modern flow measurement systems. Students will learn about flowmeter accuracy, performance, sizing, specification, selection, and installation considerations. The seminar will focus on productivity improvement, cost efficiencies of measurement and control, and whether, when, and how to use the technologies.

"Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty" helps students evaluate experimental accuracy using the basics of the measurement uncertainty model, evaluation of systematic and random error sources, analyzing uncertainty budgets, and understanding the statistics needed for uncertainty analysis. "Selection and Application of Process Measurement Sensors" is taught by Henry R. Hegner and focuses on the methodologies used to select and apply process sensors for process measurement and control, test measurement and aerospace industry applications.

The 54th International Instrumentation Symposium will feature valuable technical presentations in the traditional areas of measurements/sensors, instrumentation systems, data and advanced system/sensor technology, as well as innovative papers in many other state of the art areas.

"Everyone can look forward to learning about the latest developments in areas of wireless, process control safety & security, aerospace systems, intelligent instrumentation & measurement, integrated health systems, sensors & transducers, electro-optics, environmental, power, nuclear, distributed/industrial control systems, and micro/nanotechnology at the symposium," said Randy Buchanan, ISA Aerospace Division Director.

The multifaceted technical program will be complimented by various social functions, including a group visit to the National Museum of Naval Aviation, the largest naval museum in the world. The keynote for the symposium will be "The Emanuel Point Ship II: Investigation of a newly discovered 16th-century Spanish Shipwreck in Pensacola, Florida"
by Dr. John R Bratten, Associate Professor at the University of West Florida and Director of the Maritime Studies Program. This presentation will discuss the techniques used to find the ship, present an overview of the vessel's artifact assemblage, and discuss the archaeological excavation and analysis of the hull structure.
