Profibus UK will host the 7th annual Profibus and Profinet User Conference from 29-30 June 2010 at Stratford-on-Avon in Warwickshire, UK. Following the successful theme established as a result of six years of positive feedback from delegates, this user-focused event will feature a comprehensive, multi-stream educational programme that will lead new users through both Profibus and Profinet, from the basic technology through to its use and application experience in real-world industrial and process applications.
The two-day conference offers a selection of application-oriented technical presentations and hands-on workshops presented by experienced users, technology experts and systems builders. These are people who are training practical Profibus and Profinet engineers and installers, who are designing and building new systems or system expansions using the technology, or who have installed such systems in their plant and wish to relate their experience.
According to the organisers, the conference will assist companies that own, operate, design, build or maintain manufacturing facilities and process plant in making the transition from conventional to fieldbus systems as easy (and jargon-free) as possible. Sessions will cover the latest developments in Profibus, Profinet and PROFIsafe technologies for factory and process automation.
The conference and workshop schedule has been designed so that attendees can benefit from hands-on sessions without having to miss relevant presentations. The event is supported by a free-of-charge exhibition, with interactive displays and technology demonstrations from the UK's Profibus Competence Centre, as well as leading product vendors, trainers, consultants and systems integrators.
To ensure that no-one goes away with unanswered questions, pre-registered delegates can pose their questions in advance of the conference. In addition, the organisers say that delegates can still influence the conference content! This year the schedule has added topics such as energy efficiency and water saving, but suggestions for other topics can be sent with the registration form, which is available at www.profi-bus.co.uk.
