The Second International Conference on Advanced Engineering and Technology (ICATECH) will be hosted by Institut Teknologi Adhi Tama Surabaya (ITATS) on September 26th, 2020. The 2nd ICATECH is an annual event and it is mainly for scientists, researchers, and industry with specialties in a related area. The previous conference had been successfully held in Surabaya, September 2018 in coincide with LLDIKTI VII.

Industry 4.0 has been considered a new industrial stage in which several emerging technologies are converging to provide digital solutions. However, there is a lack of understanding of how companies implement these technologies. Thus, we aim to understand the adoption patterns of Industry 4.0 technologies in manufacturing firms. Sharing efforts to improve safety and sustainability in the construction continue to be developed by all stakeholders ranging from practitioners to academics. Therefore, the main theme for the 2nd ICATECH is Empowering Research and Innovation for Sustainable Technology.

By the theme of this year, a variety of topics related to the transforming function and improvement of infrastructure and transportation, energy, industry, information system, geology as well as the implementation of community services are expected to be presented at this conference. Through this conference, it is also expected that participants may perform research collaborations and define the platforms for their future research directions.
