Top Keynotes at Congresses
From 24 to 26 February 2015, the embedded world Exhibition&Conference (Fair ground, embedded world 2015) will once again attract large numbers of trade visitors from all over the world to Nuremberg. It is the world's largest platform for embedded-system technologies and the "knowledge tank" of one of the most innovative sectors. Two highly prestigious congress events are taking place concurrently with the trade fair: the embedded world Conference and electronic displays Conference. Tyson Tuttle, CEO of Silicon Labs, recognised HF expert and enthusiastic champion of the "Internet of Things", will give the keynote speech at this year's embedded world Conference.
With its slogan "We are the Internet of Things", the embedded world Conference 2015 is sending out a clear signal that the embedded sector has been paving the way to the Internet of Things (IoT) for quite some time, because the IoT is about the mass interconnectedness of embedded systems.
When preparing the conference, experts identified the key issues in IoT development such security, safety, M2M and wireless communication or IoT communication profiles. These topics will be presented to the conference participants in the form of sessions and intensive classes that initiate discussion and explore potential solutions. The high-calibre exchanges that result produce new ideas, trends and standards that will shape and define the future path of the IoT.
Tyson Tuttle to give keynote speech at the embedded world Conference
In his conference keynote, Tyson Tuttle, CEO of Silicon Labs, will present his perspective as an HF expert on the technical challenges for the engineering of the IoT. He is convinced that networked components will change the way we live, work, play, communicate and travel in our entire living environment. According to Tuttle, the IoT will enhance convenience and utility as well as our safety and health. In his keynote speech he will explain how existing and future hardware and software platforms in the IoT will form networked nodes, perform calculations, record measured values and trigger events. Tuttle shows the suitability of communication standards like WLAN, ZigBee, Bluetooth Smart or Thread for extending the IoT. He promotes a new generation of energy-saving microcontrollers, "wireless-SoCs with multi-protocol and multi-band capabilities, with which future IoT modules are set to be realised simply and quickly. As a result there would be virtually limitless opportunities to network everything with everything else and thus to dramatically improve the energy efficiency, reliability, safety and intuitiveness of networked components. Entry to this keynote address is free of charge for all visitors.
More high-calibre keynotes during embedded world
On the second day of the event Scott Aylor, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Embedded Systems Division at AMD, will once again address the issue of the Internet of Things in the keynote of the day at 9.30 am. In his presentation "Heterogeneous Computing for the IoT", he will examine the issue of the enormous processing power that will be necessary to realise this vision. And for the 26 February, the conference organisers have managed to enlist a strategist from the software development field to present the keynote of the day. Again at 9.30 am, Gareth Noyes, Chief Strategy Officer at Wind River, will talk about "Delivering End-to-End Intelligence for the IoT". This means that on each of the three conference days the keynote presentations will address one of the IoT technology segments connectivity, hardware and software.
electronic displays Conference: Displays as key element
For a long-time, the electronic displays Conference (Fair ground, embedded world 2015) has been established as the ultimate platform for all relevant information about displays for developers, users and decision-makers. "The congress programme and visitor numbers for the electronic displays Conference have been growing steadily for years. I am delighted that this year we can offer even more high-calibre presentations by international experts. This is impressive testimony to the key importance of this congress for the professional display sector in Europe," explains Chair of the Congress Committee Prof. Dr Karlheinz Blankenbach from the University of Pforzheim.
This year's highlights are keynote speeches on new conceptual approaches in display technology, market opportunities and display trends presented by internationally renowned experts. Other areas of focus and highlights of the conference include success factors for displays in Industry-4.0 applications, HMI/GUI and automotive displays or the latest liquid crystal materials. The programme is rounded off by two sessions on touchscreens and their optimisation and other sessions on display measuring technology, interfaces and display systems. The regular author interviews after each session offer a great opportunity to discuss the presentations in a small group.
But it is not just in the conference that displays are a prominent topic; they also feature heavily during the trade fair as such. The electronic displays Area in hall 1 (Fair ground, bedded world 2015) offers a platform for the latest technology for LCD, OLED, PDP, LED, ePaper and much more. On an exhibition space measuring around 1,600 square metres, 56 exhibitors will showcase the latest products and systems for electronic displays.
As in previous years, there is also a special highlight for students: The Student Paper Award is presented for the best bachelor's or master's thesis on the subject of electronic displays.
