48th Annual Loss Prevention Symposium (LPS)

Monday, March 31 - April 2, 2014, 8:00am CDT

The Loss Prevention Symposium (LPS) is one of four parallel symposia that comprise The Global Congress on Process Safety. Organized by Group 11A of the AIChE Safety and Health (S&H) Division, the LPS has been held annually since 1967. The Symposium promotes process safety by providing a forum for practitioners from the chemical industry, allied industries, academia, and government to share technological advances in process safety, explosion prevention, and fire protection as well as to share the lessons learned from incident investigations. The Symposium consists of six sessions, each with at least six 30-minute presentations. Papers are selected by session chairs based on an abstract of 100 to 200 words. The abstract must offer a brief account of the contents, conclusions, and the relevance of its findings. Submitted abstracts must include the author, their affiliation, full address, email, and phone number.  Papers must address pertinent process safety issues or useful loss prevention technologies. Where appropriate, illustration of the issue or prevention technology through a case history is encouraged to enhance the paper.  The papers will be published in the LPS proceedings.
