|PID at the Annual Conference
PID has another strong track of presentations set for the 2010 annual IIE conference in Cancún, Mexico in June. Our track is currently scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, June 7 and 8. Five presentations are on the schedule for Monday, with our annual Town Hall meeting and another presentation on Tuesday. The program may still experience minor tweaking, but you can now view titles and abstracts of the current line-up of talks!
If you plan to attend the conference, I encourage you to stop in for our Town Hall meeting..This is an opportunity to meet other IIE members with similar challenges to the ones you face in your operations, to meet the Process Industries Division leadership, and to have an influence on our activities and direction.
