  • Larry Komarek (Interbus)

  • Rich Timoney (Fieldbus Foundation)

  • Katherine Voss (ODVA & ControlNet International)

Areas to be covered include:

  • What steps are being taken to ensure users plug-and-play connectivity?

  • What issues are you working on to allow users the ability to transfer data between legacy networks and networks of the future?

  • What do you see as the biggest challenges for field networks in the next year?

  • What issues should end-users watch out for when implementing a fieldbus?

  • Will Ethernet be the dominant fieldbus?

  • What are the impediments to wider adoption of field networks?
