June 10, 2003 -- DistribuTECH, an automation, engineering and information technology conference and exhibition in the utility industry, is searching for abstracts that are of educational value to the water utility industry. The conference will run Jan. 20-22, 2004, in Orlando, Fla.
A PennWell event, DistribuTECH has for 13 years been a major automation and information technology conference and exhibition in the electric utility industry. Now in its 14th year, the conference is expanding its base to cover not only electric utility automation, control and IT, but also a broader power T&D and water market. The conference and exhibition typically attracts more than 3,500 industry professionals.
Now encompassing automation and control systems, IT, T&D engineering, power delivery equipment and water utility technology, the event provides participants with resources, tools and networking opportunities to succeed in the utility industry.
The event will begin with pre-conference Utility University Courses, which are full-day educational classes, and half-day Workshops. In addition to the technical paper presentations, panel presentations give the opportunity for an interactive discussion between conference delegates and the presenters.
The new Water Technologies track will cover a wide variety of topics, including:
• Automatic meter reading
• Customer information systems, including hardware and software
• Detectors, monitors & recorders
• Distributed automation
• Energy management
• Flow, level and pressure monitoring
• GIS: systems, hardware & software
• Meters & metering systems
• Mobile computing
• Pump & motor control and monitoring
How to participate
Each manuscript presentation is allowed 25 minutes, which includes time for questions. Presenters/authors will need to turn in their manuscripts before the conference for inclusion in the CD conference proceedings.
