Implementing the next generation of manufacturing technologies is critical to thriving in the age of social distancing. Remote work and social distancing will be around for the foreseeable future. Advances in flexible manufacturing, internet of things, and predictive maintenance can allow production to continue and thrive under these conditions.

The conference will be an opportunity to hear from experts in several areas of Industry 4.0 as well as networking at breakout tables where you can share lessons learned and also learn from other manufacturers with similar experiences. How did you manage in the post COVID landscape? We want to hear from you! Along with the added benefit of learning about the great Industry 4.0 resources available in NY State.

Hack Upstate organizes weekend hackathons twice a year (Fall & Spring) where developers, designers, engineers and innovators from across Upstate New York come to Syracuse, NY, to share ideas, form teams, build projects, and win awesome prizes in 24 hours.

This year, due to restrictions on physical gatherings caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be conducting our hackathon fully online. The event is still FREE to attend for all participants and there will be FREE swag.
