Call for Papers – PROFIBUS and PROFINET 2015 UK Conference

Do you have something to say at the Conference? 

PROFIBUS Group issues call for papers for 2015 ConferenceThe excellent feedback obtained from previous conferences clearly indicates that we should continue to focus on the User community. Consequently the 2015 conference to be held on 23/24 June will concentrate on the real issues of design, implementation, maintenance and management of PROFIBUS and PROFINET systems.

Who will be attending?

The conference is designed for engineers, managers and indeed anyone concerned with the real issues of implementing fieldbus and/or industrial Ethernet technologies. The conference programme will contain a mixture of presentations, demonstrations and hands-on practical sessions that are suitable for a wide variety of experience; from first-time users to those with extensive experience with working systems.

What should be presented?

In addition, the Conference will cover latest developments in PROFIBUS and PROFINET technology for factory and process automation including safety, motion control, wireless implementations and integration with the Internet – “The Internet of Things”. The event will be supported by an exhibition of the latest products and technology demonstrations from member companies.

We now need speakers who are willing to make a short (30/40 minute) presentation on applications and other user aspects of PROFIBUS and PROFINET. Topics can include system design, commissioning and maintenance and can cover any application area or industry sector.  Interactive presentations featuring live demonstrations and hands-on activities are particularly welcome. We are also seeking proposals for papers covering the latest developments in PROFIBUS and PROFINET technology as well as case studies illustrating their use in real world applications. Papers covering current “hot topics” are always welcome.
