NPRA asks for papers and questions to be submitted for October events

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

NPRA has announced that the 53rd annual Plant Automation and Decision Support Conference will take place in conjunction with the 2011 NPRA Q&A and Technology Forum from 9 -12 October in San Antonio, Texas, USA.

The conference will aim to provide practitioners and specialists with information on the tools, techniques and case histories on automation and decision support technologies, including cyber security.  It will bring together the leading vendors, adopters, and developers of these technologies in an event geared towards learning, sharing and problem solving.

The 2011 Programme Committee has developed a list of six main topic areas on today’s top priorities in plant automation and decision support.  The NPRA committee is now welcoming abstracts from operating companies, suppliers, consultants and academics, as well as looking for presenters and panelists who have experience in one or more of the areas on the attached list.

Abstracts proposed by operating companies or those with a firm operating company commitment to coauthor (i.e. will contain operating company’s perspective) will have a significant advantage over similar paper proposals (all else being equal).

Abstracts can be submitted for consideration on the NPRA website. The due date for abstracts Friday 20 May 2011.

NPRA has also announced that the deadline for questions for the NPRA Q&A and Technology Forum is nearing. Questions must be submitted by Monday 23 May 2011.
