Press releases about embedded world
The success story of the embedded world exhibition & conference continues: already, the exhibition space reserved is higher than the previous year and is set to increase even more. For the first time, 1,000 exhibitors are expected to take part in the event. These figures once again highlight the fact that this exhibition on all aspects of embedded systems is the No. 1 international platform for the sector.
Once again this year, the embedded world Conference and the electronic displays Conference will be supporting the efficiency and innovative strength of the global embedded industry with first-class specialist knowledge. The central objectives of the conferences are to provide specifically targeted knowledge, to highlight trends and current themes, to offer a glimpse into the future and to facilitate a dialogue between experts. In 2017 the spotlight will once again be on the highly topical issues of “Internet of Things” and “Security & Safety”. The keynote speeches will be held by Rick Clemmer, CEO of NXP and Riccardo Mariani, Chief Functional Safety Technologist at Intel. The link between theory and practice will be provided by special presentations on M2M, electronic displays and safety & security within the exhibition itself. This is where the forward-looking presentations will be given visual form in the exhibition halls. The industry event for the international embedded community will be taking place in Exhibition Centre Nuremberg for the 15th time from 14 to 16 March 2017.
Following the major success of its inaugural edition in 2016, a second panel discussion will be held at the embedded world Exhibition & Conference 2017 on 15 March, its second day. Under the slogan “Safe for the Future”, discussion at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg will revolve around the security of embedded systems and safeguarding computers and communication channels. The core topic will be protecting networked embedded systems in the Internet of Things. Prof. Christof Paar, Chair for Embedded Security at Ruhr-University Bochum, Arne Schönbohm, President of the German Federal Office for Information Security and Tyson Tuttle, CEO and President of Silicon Labs, have already accepted an invitation to speak.
The STUDENT DAY is well established as one of the highlights of the embedded world Exhibition&Conference and is being held for the eighth time in 2017. The highlight on the morning of the third day will be a keynote presentation on the Internet of Uncanny Things by Sascha Wolter, Senior Manager Connected Home at Deutsche Telekom AG. He will talk about how designers and developers can live up to their responsibility to ensure security and privacy in the Internet of Things as everyday objects become smarter and are designed to know more about their users.
With the publication of the Call for Papers, the organisers of the embedded world and electronic displays conferences 2017 have launched the submission phase for the forthcoming conferences. The focus is yet again on the hot topics in the context of embedded systems and displays. As a result, the conferences will provide a high-calibre thematic accompaniment to the trade show and forums taking place in the exhibition halls.
Once again, the embedded world Exhibition and Conference has confirmed its outstanding role for the international embedded community. This year’s event broke new records after three action-packed and exciting days of trade fair and congress: 30,063 trade visitors (+17%), around a third of whom were from outside Germany, and 939 exhibiting companies (+4%) from 38 countries. It is the No. 1 international gathering place for all aspects of embedded system technologies. Equally successful, and featuring even more participants, were the embedded world and electronic displays Conferences: 1,666 embedded and display experts from all over the world came to the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg to enjoy professional knowledge-sharing of the highest professional calibre.
