Join Festo on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at the campus of UC San Diego.
As laboratory experimentation, data and interpretation become increasingly complex, automation and information technology (IT) solutions become essential for successful drug discovery. The lab of the future will open unforeseen potential as higher throughput, precisely controlled automated processes; with smarter information collection and analysis, solve today's problems and bring new opportunities. The aspiration of this “future lab” is to empower scientists to simply perform the right experiment and bring new ideas to light. The Festo automation symposium will focus on how to make future laboratory solutions smarter to deliver more to science. Speakers from leading organizations will present a program focused on the fundamentals of the smart lab considering contributors such as Industry 4.0, Internet of Things (IoT), automated decision making, cloud processing and big data acquisition, with a special focus on sample handling and preparation.
This one day conference will provide an exclusive opportunity to network and be involved in inspiring and interesting discussions with opinion leaders in instrumentation, informatics, lab automation, strategy developers and industrial automation experts together with a strong and aligned vendor community. At the end of the conference, join us for a cocktail reception.
