The Open DeviceNet Vendors Association (ODVA) reports that registration is open for its CIP Networks Conference and 10th Annual Meeting, which will be held Nov. 15-18, 2004, at the Hilton Palacio Del Rio, San Antonio, TX.

In its first 10 years, ODVA established itself as a leading membership organization for manufacturers of network-enabled, industrial automation products. Entering its second decade, ODVA is positioned to increase its influence as ODVA-related technologies expand into new applications and markets, such as functional safety and synchronization. ODVA's conference and meeting is a once-a-year opportunity to learn about the latest industry developments in ODVA technologies.

Activities will be offered throughout the week to appeal to broad range of interests for ODVA's members and general industry, culminating in the 10th annual meeting on Nov. 18. At the end of the day, attendees also can enjoy a relaxing stroll along San Antonio's famous Riverwalk, home to many restaurants and shops.

The meeting is open to the public, as well as the ODVA members. If you are not an ODVA member, but are still interested in learning more about ODVA technologies and ODVA, either as a vendor or a user, then this is the event that you should attend. Registration forms and fees are due Oct. 8, 2004.
