The IFAN Conference focuses on Robotics and Automation in the food industry and examines new technology trends, industry challenges, and evolving research. The conference brings together industry leaders from across the globe for two days of education sessions and networking opportunities. The conference is organized by the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI); FAN Limited; and BMC, UK. Since its 2016 debut in the USA, the IFAN Conference has continued to grow in attendance. Register today to attend the premier conference on food industry automation and technology.

The 2022 conference theme is Securing the Future: Designing Robustness and Resilience into the Food Production System. Presentations and discussions will focus on Robotics & Automation, Data Analytics, and Social & Human Interaction. The past couple of years has highlighted the importance of a steady and reliable food manufacturing sector. Challenges with recruiting, training, and retaining a reliable labor force have shown that moving forward, research and development in automation specifically for food will be even more critical for maintaining a resilient food supply. Targeted towards corporate food manufacturing engineering leaders, equipment suppliers, and end customers of such technologies, the IFAN conference seeks to provide meaningful networking opportunities, highlight tangible research and development activities, and provide a broader context for automation deployment in the food manufacturing sector.
