CSIA Annual Conference - 2018

The traditional annual CSIA conference took place April 18-20 in San Francisco, CA and gathered the record number of 600 participants, which was probably due to the venue.

Digital transformation of production (Industry 4.0), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and open process automation (OPA) became the most discussed topics of the event.

During the working meeting of OPAF (Open Process Automation Forum), Don Bartusiak, Chief Engineer, Process Control for ExxonMobil Research and Engineering, informed that OPAF is launching several pilot projects. Participants of the meeting decided to spur joint works within the scope of the CSIA Task Force group.

During the last day of the conference, our colleague, Luigi De Bernardini was awarded the main CSIA award for his significant voluntary contribution as a member of the CSIA management board. Our congratulations!
