We are pleased to announce a second edition of the conference devoted to Process Safety and Big Data. This conference is jointly sponsored by the Center for Chemical Process Safety [CCPS] and European Process Safety Center [EPSC], meeting in Frankfurt am Main, Germany from November 14-15, 2017. The first edition of this conference series was held last year and it was a great success receiving excellent feedback from all attendees and stakeholders. Those attended the 2016 event felt that Big Data in relation to Process Safety is an evolving area and we must stay abreast with this important emerging subject as it can deliver exceptional value to our key stakeholders. This event will serve as a common platform that brings together our key stakeholders - industry, academia, governmental regulatory agencies and labor organizations, to lead the way in improving industrial process safety and achieving process safety excellence. We invite both Process Safety and Big Data practitioners to submit abstracts by August 17, 2017, for this important conference.

This conference is focused on uses of Big Data to improve Process Safety Performance and to Achieve Process Safety Excellence.  As such, we request that each proposal abstract clearly state the alignment of the proposed presentation with the focus areas of the conference (Process Safety Performance and/or Process Safety Excellence).

We look forward to seeing you this November!
