Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition (SCADA) is a unique, long-established international conference that represents the oil industry control systems groups and deals with control, communication, remote data acquisition, and the enabling technologies associated with hydrocarbon exploration from the subsea environment. The theme for the latest conference, held in Paris on 13-14 June 2002 and entitled Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition: Performance and Reliability – Lessons Learned, was structured to cover a wide range of subjects in those areas which emphasise the reliability of and lessons learned from the operation of such systems.

Aimed at the professionals active in subsea production systems and in particular those engaged in the control and monitoring of such systems, the proceedings from the  Conference are now available in a 200-page hardback book with a subject matter ranging from fibre optics to smart wells, and wave generation systems to patentable technology.
