Welcome message from the 2017 Program Chair

Joe Provenzano, 2017 Program Committee Chair

On behalf of the entire program committee, I would like to formally welcome you to this year’s 2017 WWAC Symposium. Our focus is to help professionals in the water and wastewater industries gain a greater understanding of how automatic control applications, utilizing the latest in instrumentation and intelligent controls technology, can be applied to improve both process measurement water and wastewater processing, collection, treatment, and distribution.

Our symposium is a three day event where attendees will experience a breath of learning and continuing education opportunities. Our symposium starts with two optional training courses. This is followed by early-bird symposium badge-pick up and a plant tour. Then we have two full days dedicated to technical presentations. In addition to our 30+ technical speakers, we have an informative keynote opening, invited speakers, and guest speakers are part of our program.

I also encourage you to visit our exhibit hall, talk with our sponsors, and network with your fellow attendees. From these interactions you will find out about new techniques, products and approaches to your daily automation challenges.

We are pleased to welcome the full range of automation professionals in our sector to our symposium. This includes both plant people, including operations, maintenance, engineering and management, as well as plant designers, instrumentation specialists, and system integration firms. Please take advantage of the professional development opportunities afforded to you by our symposium. If you are a Florida resident, make sure to fill out the paperwork to get your FDEP-approved CEUs/PDHs. If you are from out of state, or have an ISA CCST or CAP certification, don’t forget to request your ISA training certificate.

Come join us!
