Glass Processing Automation Days (GPAD) officials announced registration is open for the 2016 event in San Diego. As in previous years, GPAD 2016 is organized by Ohio-based software specialist FeneTech and will take place from March 15-16, 2016 at the Catamaran Resort Hotel & Spa.

GPAD focuses on automation, integration and innovation and will educate attendees on how the latest machinery and product technology, tightly integrated with modern software, allows companies to achieve maximum benefits with the highest degree of automation.

Keynote speaker, Stephen Selkowitz, an internationally recognized American building scientist and a leading researcher of energy efficiency in building envelopes, will explore the gap between today’s standard practice using minimally code-compliant glazing, and the performance of “best available” technologies both on the market today as well as emerging solutions.

GPAD is dedicated to CEOs, presidents and operation directors of glass processing companies and will feature live presentations and discussions about the latest technology in the glass processing industry.
