Thanks to our partnership with WEF, this year’s WEFTEC 2012 show featured a special session entitled “FS16: Highlights from the 2012 ISA Water/Wastewater and Automatic Controls Symposium”.

The session featured three speakers from our symposium and was co-moderated by Tom DeLaura and Graham Nasby. Tom is the chair of the WEF Automation and Info Tech Committee, and Graham was the general symposium chair of the 2012 WWAC symposium.
