This conference is jointly sponsored by ISA Water/Wastewater Industries Division (ISA) and The Water Environment Federation (WEF).

The WWAC Symposium helps professionals in the water and wastewater industry understand how automatic control applications affect processing, treatment, distribution, and collection of water resources and provide an outstanding opportunity to gain valuable technical information and training. This 3-day symposium is focused on the challenges associated with automation and instrumentation in the water and wastewater sector. It features: 2 full days of presentations (two speaking tracks), a tour of a local water/wastewater facility, a general reception, networking events, a poster session, and a supplier showcase. The first day begins with symposium registration, a plant tour, and an optional full-day short course on SCADA/automation system security. The second day kicks off with a keynote speaker, followed by presentations on general topics such as instrumentation; system integration, automation, plant case studies, new technologies and process optimization/automation. The third day starts with an invited speaker on effective HMI design and alarm management, and is focused on leveraging automation technology with topics geared towards SCADA, HMI, Human Factors, and Alarm Management. The Tuesday-Thursday timeslot has been selected so that families can easily take their kids to Disney World, both during and before/after the symposium. Proceedings will be published and made available to ISA water/wastewater division members, and papers will be considered for publication in the ISA’s technical journal, ISA Transactions (
