ISA hosts numerous annual events worldwide that provide quality education, the latest automation developments, and real-world scenarios, with presentations delivered by experts, peers, and industry leaders.

ISA’s annual technical division symposia include:


ISA Analysis Division Symposia (AD)

This long-running spring symposium, sponsored by the ISA Analysis Division, continues to offer an outstanding forum for the discussion of new and innovative processes and other analytical techniques, developments, and applications. The program includes expert-led training, technical presentations, social functions, and more.


ISA Food and Pharmaceutical Division Symposium (FPID)

The Food and Pharmaceutical Industries Division (FPID) Symposium brings together experts, vendors, and end users in a two-day symposium to cover the critical challenges and issues in automation and serialization and how they affecting food and pharmaceutical supply chains.


ISA International Instrumentation Symposium (IIS)

This symposium is sponsored jointly by the Aerospace Industries, Test Measurement, and Process Measurement and Controls Divisions of ISA. IIS is recognized internationally as the outstanding forum for discussion of new and innovative instrumentation techniques, development, and applications. Attendees will get fully up to date on all the latest technologies, products, and services related to instrumentation-particularly in aerospace, oil and gas, chemical, and manufacturing.


ISA Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR)—Fugitive Emissions Symposium

Stay current on the latest news from regulatory officials, hear best-practice leak detection and repair (LDAR) program success stories, and learn about the most recent innovations and advances in air compliance strategies, technologies, and techniques at the ISA LDAR-Fugitive Emissions Symposium. Numerous tutorials and panel sessions allow for extensive face-to-face discussions and interaction with both government representations and industry colleagues.


ISA Power Industry Symposium (POWID)

ISA’s Annual Power Industry (POWID) Symposium is dedicated to automation, control systems, and instrumentation in the power generation industry. Attendees will come away with: a greater awareness and understanding of recent innovations in instrumentation, controls and automation technologies; and the know-how to apply security to control systems; improve power plant load demand response and low-load operation; and monitor and diagnose plant equipment and system reliability issues.


ISA Process Control and Safety Symposium (PCS)

As ISA’s largest conference, PCS brings together technical content and expertise from six ISA technical divisions to cover a wide range of interconnected topics in process measurement, control, safety, security, chemical and energy processing, and other essential areas. Engineers, technicians, and plant managers from the oil and gas, refining, chemical, petrochemical, and other process industries will benefit from a world-class technical program, including expert-led educational tracks, engaging keynote presentations and in-depth panel discussions and training courses.


ISA Water/Wastewater and Automatic Controls Symposium (WWAC)

Presented by the ISA Water and Wastewater Industries Division, in collaboration with the Florida AWWA Section, the WEF Automation and Info Tech Committee, the Florida Water Environment Association, and the Instrumentation Testing Association, the WWAC Symposium helps professionals in the water and wastewater industries understand how instrumentation, SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition), and automatic control applications are vital to the treatment and distribution of water; the collection and treatment of wastewater; and the management of stormwater.
