Bigger Than Ever -
embedded world Kicks off With More Exhibitors and More Exhibition Space!
For one of the most innovative and trail-blazing industries, the new year always starts in spring with the international leading exhibition embedded world Exhibition&Conference, which brings together experts in embedded technology from around the world for a three-day summit meeting. The trade fair location in Nuremberg turns into their workroom for the duration. The most important conference and exhibition for embedded technologies has grown in size once again in 2016. And the list of exhibitors has also hit a new record, with 939 companies from 38 countries. The embedded community will discuss current trends and future challenges for embedded system technologies in the conferences accompanying the exhibition, and in the halls themselves. The focus here is on innovations, Safety & Security and the Internet of Things.
"Innovative products, visionary personalities and a deep, professional dialogue involving the sharing of knowledge at the highest levels are what characterise the embedded world," says Richard Krowoza, a member of the NürnbergMesse management team. "Embedded experts from all over the world meet in Nuremberg every year to network. The exhibition and the accompanying conferences provide the opportunity to bring theory and practice together in the best possible way. 939 exhibitors from38 countries provide trade visitors from the global embedded community with the leading platform to further improve the use of embedded systems across a wide range of industries. You can virtually feel the power of innovation and the thirst for action that characterise this unique industry."
Keynote address by Eugene Kaspersky
Eugene Kaspersky, CEO Kaspersky Lab, is attending embedded world and will give one of the main keynote addresses. In his speech, "The Long Hard Road Out of the Cyber Dark Ages", he highlights how IT security aspects are also becoming increasingly relevant in the IoT in the face of the growing fusion between IT and the embedded world. For cybersecurity experts, it is particularly difficult to safeguard systems that were not developed with the risk of security attacks in mind. Kaspersky calls for the introduction of development standards that will make software inherently more secure. Those with an interest in this topic can discover what is necessary at 1:30 pm on 23 February in the Sydney Hall, NCC Ost.
IoT and Security & Safety:
focal points of the embedded world conference
In 2016, the embedded world Conference once again bears the motto "We are the Internet of Things" (IoT). The development of the Internet of Things requires expertise in the core disciplines of the embedded world such as hardware and software development, systems engineering or management. Secure communication routes are also a crucial factor for the Internet of Things. Security and safety of embedded systems play a vital role in the conference. Experts from well-known companies, for example, will be presenting suitable protection solutions, describing secure transmission channels and showing how security and safety can be specifically integrated into planning and installation at various levels.
Under the heading "Internet of Things", all three conference days will provide answers to the most urgent questions about this second focal point of the conference; here, the spectrum ranges from open-source through the suitability of different communication protocols to best-practice examples of particular IoT nodes and applications.
The "traditional" areas such as system, software and hardware engineering will also be included and are spotlighted in the conference programme with continuous sessions and a number of classes. Further sessions on embedded operating systems and a "management focus" will round off the broad range of themes at the embedded world Conference 2016.
