CaFFEET 2014 : Smart Factory

CaFFEET’14 is organized in partnership with the Paris Region International Mission Enterprise (PRIME), and l’Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique (INRIA). CaFFEET’14 will take place at the Fort Mason Center, in San Francisco on November 19th and 20th 2014, and will address the following question: “What is the Value Added of Smart Factory, both for manufacturing productivity and industrial energy management?”

The California France Forum on Energy Efficiency Technologies (CaFFEET) is an annual event established in 2011 by EDF and the Consulate General of France in San Francisco. Its aim is to promote technical and scientific collaborations between France and California, two leaders in achieving low-CO2 economies.

Every year, CaFFEET reunites an audience of approximately 200 people affiliated with large private companies like EDF or Schneider as well as Universities like UC Berkeley or Stanford. The conference is also the occasion for French and American start-ups to come and present their products via a Technology Showcase.

CaFFEET’14 will hold three sessions relating to the special features of the Smart Factory at different levels: the industry process, the industrial site and the electrical system. A detailed program of the event can be found on the following link :
