September 15, 2008

The International Society for Measurement & Control (ISA) will hold its third annual YAPFEST on October 14th, 2008 in conjunction with ISA EXPO at the Reliant Center, Houston, Texas.

YAPFEST is a social gathering for young automation professionals and students who study engineering and other automation fields. The gathering offers free food and beverages; raffles for prizes, including an Alienware Notebook, MP3 Player, iPod, and Xbox games; musical entertainment; scholarship opportunities; and networking with potential employers. ASCO Numatics, the world’s leading manufacturer of flow control and pneumatics solutions, will be presenting two scholarship awards and offering other scholarship opportunities during YAPFEST 2008. Attendees will also receive a free conference session pass to ISA EXPO for the day of YAPFEST and a 50% off coupon for any ISA book that can be used at the bookstore at ISA EXPO.

In the previous two years, YAPFEST attracted over 200 attendees and has been a vehicle for students and automation professionals to identify employment opportunities and to learn about ISA’s products and services, including membership.

Free registration for automation professionals and students, ages 18-30, is available online at or by phone at (919) 549-8411.
