The Will-DuPage Section of the International Society of Instrumentation is having a meeting this week (Thursday, 5/22) featuring a guest that we feel that many chemical engineers would also be interested in:

The ISA Will-DuPage Section is proud to welcome Béla Lipták to present on how automation could have saved Fukushima as well as the next generation of nuclear power plants.

Bela has over 50+ years of professional experience including the automation of several dozen industrial plants, the publication of over 300 technical articles and over 20 books dealing with various aspects of automation, safety, and energy technology.  In 1973 he was elected an ISA (International Society of Automation) fellow, in 1995 received the Technical Achievement Award from ISA and in 2001 “Control Hall of Fame” award. He was the keynote speaker at the 2002 and the 2011 ISA conventions and in 2012 received the “Lifetime Achievement Award” from the International Society of Automation.

The event will be hosted at Harrah’s Joliet Casino and Hotel Ballroom (151 N Joliet St., Joliet, IL 60432) from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
