Who Should Attend
Young engineers, seasoned professionals, process technology specialists, and mid-to-upper level managers from operating plants and headquarters, as well as supplier companies.
Individuals responsible for plant automation, process control, planning and scheduling, IT, modeling/simulation professionals, refinery and petrochemical engineers and consultants should plan on attending the plant automation sessions as well as the Q&A and P&P sessions.
The Answer Book
All attendees are encouraged to respond to the prepared questions. The Q&A Answer Book allows you to incorporate visual aids and lengthy or highly technical comments into a response. The Answer Book will complement the session discussion and provide more depth on certain topics. Prior to the conference, a digital version of the Answer Book will be available to conference attendees on the My Meetings link of the AFPM Web site (use your registration ID and password to access conference publications).
To have your answers included, submit them no later than September 14, 2012. This will allow time for AFPM to prepare the Answer Book for distribution.
Please use the following format:
- Identify yourself, your company, and the session topic and question number to which you are responding;
- Provide a contact name, phone number and/or email address in case there are questions about your response.
You may submit your responses via e-mail to Answerbook@afpm.org
