The 60th International Instrumentation Symposium

The IET, working in partnership with the International Society of Automation (ISA), is bringing the hugely successful IIS conference to the UK for the first time in its history.

The packed programme at this prestigious conference will address technologies, techniques and principles around instrumentation and process measurement and control through technical presentations and additional workshops.

The event will feature sessions around turbine engine measurements, sensors and transducers, phosphors and wireless and automated systems bringing together both industry and academia in one forum and giving attendees a great platform to learn and share knowledge.

The exhibition will offer a host of networking opportunities with the advantage of connecting with peers and colleagues in a professional environment.
