  IN THIS ISSUE: Director’s Message1ACOS at 2ISA EXPO 2003ACOS Sessions at 2ISA EXPO 2003ACOS and the Web3AACC Call for Papers3Technical Papers:4.NET IndustrialAutomationPLC Formal ControlMethodologiesTechnical Information5SourcesReport from Dr. Gao5Division Officers6 I am amazed at the diversity of people I discover in the controlsindustry and in ACOS. We live on different continents. We toil indifferent industries having differing types of control challenges. Wehave different education, both formal and practical. We come fromacademia and from the field. Yet, all of us seem to find a fascina-tion and excitement in working on and solving control problems. When we have the opportuni-ty, most of us like to share our experiences with others.Increasingly, the most used bond among us is via the World Wide Web. Articles in thisnewsletter discuss ACOS and the Web. Your thoughts, ideas, and contributions on how thediverse ACOS community can better use the www can help all of us. Please read these articlesand consider them.The two technical papers are from ISA 2002 ACOS technical sessions. They reflect thediversity found in ACOS. I will try to get at least two additional papers from these sessionsposted to the ACOS local web site. Perhaps a link posted to the web site will provide access tovendor sites containing much the same technical information as two or three of the papersgiven. In this way, a significant portion of the papers having wide interest can be made avail-able to Members all over the world (see related article). While this won’t duplicate the benefitsof those who attended ISA EXPO 2002 or will come to Houston for ISA EXPO2003, it pro-vides a good benefit for $7/year Division dues.Division positions are available for Director-elect, Facilitator, Webmaster-elect, andNewsletter Editor. The newsletter will most often be distributed via e-mail or be posted on theDivision Website, so this position will work with the Webmaster(s).I look forward to ISA EXPO 2003 in Houston and hope to see you there.Harry Elliott, ACOS DirectorPhone: (281) 340-3907Fax: (281) 340-3939Email: Director’s Message By Harry Elliott, PE, CFSE   AutomaticControl SystemsDivision ISA Division Newsletter  Summer 2003  Page 2Summer 2003 Through efforts of the ISA TechnicalConference ACOS Division SessionCoordinator, Steve Weygandt, five ACOStechnical sessions have been programmedfor ISA EXPO 2003, 21-23 October 2003,in Houston, Texas.

The local site, maintained bythe ACOS Webmaster Chuck Cuyulis,has a technical focus. In addition, ACOSMembers can join the Division listserve.These tools are available for us toprovide each other technical information.We especially contribute to the localDivision Web site. Three suggestions forcontributing to the Web site are:ãWhat Web sites have you foundthat have useful technical content?The site currently divides the linksby categories so vendor sites withuseful, general technical informa-tion are acceptable.ãProvide a book review that wouldpermit the addition of anothertopic on the site.ãProvide your suggestions on Website content.Send comments to either or bothChuck Cuyulis at or Harry Elliott at .Additional technical articles will beadded to the site.Requests for specific control questionscan be broadcast to the Members of theDivision listserve. By responding, we shareour knowledge and opinions with othersin the field. Pick the ISA listserves thatbest meet your interests. Benefits comefrom asking, reading, and responding!The primary means of communica-tion for the Division have been newslet-ters, technical presentations, and ISAand American Automatic ControlCouncil. Future Division newsletters onpaper are—most probably—history. Fora majority of the Members, regularattendance at shows other than localand conferences is not economically fea-sible. The future of the Division willdepend heavily on www tools. The American Automatic Control Council will hold the 23rd American ControlConference (ACCC) from 30 June to 2 July 2004 at the Boston Sheraton Hotel in Boston,Mass. Held in cooperation with eight member societies, including ISA, the conferencefocuses on the fields of control, automation, and related areas.Papers are solicited in the form of regular manuscripts (6 proceeding pages) and shortmanuscripts (2 pages). The conference also calls for proposals for invited sessions, tutorialsessions, interactive sessions, and workshops. Nominations are also solicited for the beststudent paper competition.The new ISA Review Chair for the ACC, Dr. Zhiqiang Gao, encourages all ACOSMembers to participate in this conference.Dr. Gao, associate professor and director of the Center for Advanced ControlTechnology at Cleveland State University, and his group have been working extensivelywith industry partners in developing nonlinear PID, fuzzy logic, wavelet controller, andone-parameter tuning technologies.As an ISA Officer, Dr. Gao’s main goal is to facilitate across-the-board collaborationsbetween practicing engineers and academic researchers. The ACC provides a great oppor-tunity to initiate a dialog between the two parties. It is also a place for ACOS Members tosharpen their skills by attending sessions, such as the “Practical Techniques in ControlEngineering” workshop, and by picking brains of top experts in all areas of controls.The practitioners and researchers in ACOS are also encouraged to submit papers onthe history, the state of art, and the technical challenges for a particular industry sector.For more information, Dr. Gao can be reached by email at or byphone at (216) 687-3528.See the related article in this newsletter entitled “Report from Dr. Gao.”For more information on the conference, consult its Web site or contact one of the following conference organizers: Call for Papers—2004 American Control Conference ACOS and the Web General Chair  Jason L.
