Add to Calendar

The Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) and European Process Safety Center (EPSC) will jointly host the European Conference on Process Safety and Big Data at the DECHEMA-House in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

The 4th Edition of the European Conference on Process Safety and Big Data will be featuring Augmenting Process Safety Performance through Big Data, Digitalization and Robotics.

Preconference course 

Call for Abstracts is Now Open! 

Data generation & digitization is growing fast and can help to improve the safety of hazardous chemical operations. At this conference we will discuss the actual practices and opportunities. Submit Your Abstract to: ccpseuropeanconference@aiche.org that demonstrate the relevance of process safety improvements through big data and digitalization. The call for abstracts will close on June 15, 2019

Call for Abstract Topics Includes the Following: 

Abstract Submission Form

1.Tools to Avoid Human Errors

  • Digital tools to help operators and technicians avoid incidents caused by human error

2. Data Lakes / Intelligent Dashboards / KPIs

  • Benefits of Data Lakes and Visualization to Safety, increasing transparency through correlations of risk assessments with actual process behavior  and presence/absence and causes of incidents

3. Big Data Analytics

  • Benefits to process safety of using Big Data Analytics
  • Closing the loop of safety life cycle
  • Increase Process Safety by improve manufacturing practices

4. Standards & Methods

  • Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Standards which facilitate Big Data Analytics, Status of Standardization

5. Augmented Reality

  • Solutions with Augmented Reality to support plant operators, maintenance workers to avoid human errors, give engineers the tools for human factor engineering/ergonomic plant design; Visualization of interrelations between measurements and safety, simulation of safety incidents

6. Predictive Maintenance

  • Practical Big Data examples and successful projects that drive Process Safety through improving maintenance effectiveness

7. Robotics in Support of Safety

  • Mobile leak detection, Inspection by drones, risky tasks performed by robots, ..

8. Practical Examples/Case Studies

  • Early Identification of Process Safety and Hazard Risks, Intelligent Identification of Safety problems, solutions which reduce number and severity of incidents

9. Plant Monitoring 

  • Use of Cameras, Microphones, gas sensors, etc. to monitor the plant for leaks, unusual sounds, etc., and evaluation of these signals, similar to what an operator would be doing when he walks the plant
