PROFIBUS UK has issued a Call for Papers for its annual PROFIBUS User Conference to be held at Coombe Abbey, Warwickshire on 26th and 27th June 2007. The excellent feedback that was obtained from the 2005 and 2006 conferences clearly indicated that the conference should continue to focus on the User community. Consequently the 2007 conference will concentrate on the real issues of implementation, maintenance and management of PROFIBUS and PROFINET systems.
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 suited to a wide variety of experience; from first-time users to those with extensive experience with working systems.
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 and MES. The event will be supported by an exhibition of the latest products and technology demonstrations from the UK PROFIBUS Competence Centre.
The Papers Committee is seeking proposals for papers from 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. They 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.
Proposals for presentations comprising a working title and 50 to 150-word abstract and brief biography should be sent to The Papers Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrive no later than 15th January 2006.
