Registration is now open for the second [MC]2 2013 MTConnect: Connecting Manufacturing Conference. [MC]2 2013 will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio April 10-11, 2013, at the Millennium Hotel Cincinnati.
MTConnect is a set of open, royalty-free standards intended to foster greater interoperability between controls, devices, and software applications by publishing data over networks using the Internet Protocol. Since its introduction in 2008 MTConnect has become the standard for manufacturing connectivity. The manufacturing technology community commonly uses MTConnect to connect the shop floor to monitoring applications and to integrate the shop floor with the entire manufacturing enterprise.
The conference promotes both the benefits and implementation of MTConnect, as well as showcasing commercially available products that utilize the standard. Attendees who could benefit from this important event include end users – shop owners, plant managers, industry thought leaders, MTConnect Institute participants, equipment suppliers, students, educators, software developers, distributors, ISVs, integrators, and consultants.
“[MC]2 2013 will build upon the huge success of the inaugural conference in 2011 where we had industry thought leaders, 175 attendees, numerous speakers, hands-on labs and 24 exhibitors,” says David Edstrom, MTConnect institute chairman of the board and president. “MTConnect is a true game changer that is revolutionizing manufacturing and this conference will once again provide business and technical content for everyone who participates.”
