This article presents information on the ISA Expo 2004, an automation and control conference, training and exhibition in Houston, Texas. Fabio Terezinho of Indusoft plans to help attendees discover of their plants are vulnerable to a cyberattack. With the growing demand of interconnection between the plant and corporate networks, cybersecurity is becoming a major problem on the plant floor. Kevin Zamzow of Locus Inc. has submitted his view on the key challenges to wireless communication in industrial automation environments. The symposia will address Ethernet and Internet Protocol issues from the industrial perspective, detailing technical challenges and solutions, updates on Foundation fieldbus and Profibus and useful technologies applicable to all fieldbuses. The symposium on productivity and asset management will concentrate on making better use of plant capital assets and boosting productivity. The automation hierarchy makes up the asset management equation. The technical conference sessions include original technical presentations, paper and panel discussions and tutorials based on applications and techniques from manufacturing processes. Industrial network and systems security, productivity and asset management, industrial communications and networking are some of the topics speakers will cover.
