I just heard about this Symposium through one of the ISA Committees that I lurk on. Looks like a great opportunity for those of you who work in/with industrial communications.

The ISA Communications Division Symposium is an opportunity to meet with peers and share ideas and learn about the latest advances in all forms of industrial communications from telemetry, fieldbus, Ethernet, and wireless technologies. We will be building on the success of the two previous Passive Wireless Sensor Tag workshop by offering this full workshop as one track in the Symposia.

Paper sessions, short courses, workshops, and tutorials will all be included. Papers will be considered for publication in the ISA technical journal, ISA Transactions. Written papers will be refereed while PowerPoint submittals will be reviewed for compliance with ISA guidelines. It is our intention to publish all documents via the Division website. Topics include but are not limited to:
