Spotlight on the ISA Analysis Division and Its Virtual Conference

Online process analytics is constantly evolving—for those in the field, the learning never stops. The subject matter is complex and highly variable—professionals find themselves using a mix of chemistry, physics, electronics, software, control engineering, sample handling, common sense, perseverance, and maybe just a touch of black magic.

The International Society of Automation (ISA)'s Analysis Division is involved in every aspect of process stream and laboratory methods of analysis—from theory and development to application, training, calibration, and others. The Analysis Division is a collection of approximately 900 process analyzer professionals, from technicians to design engineers, some of whom can trace their careers back to the origins of process analytics.

Every year, the Analysis Division hosts an industry event to provide professional development at every aspect of process stream and laboratory methods of analysis, from theory and development to calibration through application. This year, this internationally recognized technical conference and exhibition will take place in a virtual format.


ISA's 2021 Analysis Division Virtual Conference on 23 March 2021 will allow attendees to explore the future of analytical processes, techniques, and applications. The all-day event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. The new virtual setup helps make attending easier and more flexible for any process analyzer professional around the world.

At the conference, leading industry experts will deliver peer-reviewed technical papers, provide critical updates, highlight trends and innovations, and review best practices and success stories in the process analytical arena.

The 2021 Analysis Division Virtual Conference will bring together top experts across critical areas covering:

  • Sampling systems
  • Chromatography
  • Gas detectors
  • Chemical analyzers
  • Systems integration
  • Physical properties
  • Spectroscopy
  • Emerging technology
  • Environmental
  • Electrochemistry

The ISA Analysis Division specifically built the program around the needs of today's process analyzer professionals. Attendees will walk away from the event with new expert contacts, a fresh view of important regulatory topics, a better understanding of the science and art behind process analysis, and a view of what's coming next in this ever-changing field.

To learn more about the conference and its speakers, and to register, please visit the ISA Analytics Division Virtual Conference website.

ISA offers virtual events, including webinars, virtual conferences, and ISA Connect Live, across a variety of topics.
