Navigating the World of Automation

That’s the theme of Siemens Industry’s 2011 Automation Summit, to be held at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts in Orlando, Fla. from June 27-30. The Summit will provide engineering and operational professionals, automation and operations management and senior-level executives with end user learning opportunities from a broad range of automation topics, from process and discrete operations to motion control and drives.

More than 50 breakout sessions will feature presentations and best practice case studies from end users and industry experts. Other activities include networking events, a technology showcase, live demonstrations and hands-on training sessions.

Craig Russell, chief design and project delivery executive for Walt Disney Imagineering, will be the keynote speaker. He serves as the co-executive leader of the creative delivery arm of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. In his role, Russell is responsible for the design, engineering, production, installation and project management for Imagineering Theme Park and Resort projects globally.
