Knowledge for the Embedded Community
Once again this year, the embedded world Conference and the electronic display 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, last but not least, to facilitate a dialogue between experts. The focus in 2016 is on the "Internet of Things" and "Security & Safety". This year's keynote speakers will be Eugene Kaspersky, CEO Kaspersky Labs and an internationally recognised IT security expert. 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 Nuremberg Exhibition Centre for the 14th time from 23 to 25 February 2016.
It is now just a few months until the embedded world Exhibition&Conference opens its doors. This year, once again, the embedded world will be demonstrating that it is the number 1 event for the global embedded community and is providing impetus for the Internet of Things. Now in its 14th year, the event is once again on course to break all records. "embedded world is developing brilliantly. It is already clear that embedded world is set to be even spanger again in 2016. The entire industry stands behind its embedded world", said Benedikt Weyerer, Director Exhibition embedded world, giving a first impression. This reflects the continuous development of the event over recent years into the most important specialist event of its type worldwide.
"The industry is still growing dramatically. For the community, the event is the most important platform for exchanging ideas and obtaining information at a high level - and the two congresses with their innovative themes also have a valuable role to play", emphasised Prof. Dr. Ing. Matthias Sturm, Exhibition Committee and Conference Chair, Steering Board embedded world Conference.
In 2016, once again, the focussed programmes of the embedded world Conference and the electronic displays Conference will convincingly show the trade world that the focus here is on topical, high-quality, very precise specialist knowledge.
IoT and Safety & Security in the spotlight - Kaspersky is keynote speaker
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. Eugene Kaspersky underlines this in his conference keynote speech. He highlights how IT safety aspects are also becoming increasingly relevant in the IoT in the face of the increasing fusion between IT and the embedded world.
For cybersecurity experts, it is particularly difficult to safeguard systems that were not developed with a view to possible security attacks. Kaspersky treats the work of these experts as a type of alchemy without appropriate scientific methods. He calls for the introduction of development standards that will make software inherently more secure. For this, in his opinion, global cooperation is just as essential as the overcoming of barriers to information exchange through the "Balkanisation" of the industry. After all, cybersecurity problems are global and can only be solved by applying global experience.
In the rest of the conference programme, the security and safety of embedded systems also play a vital role. 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.
"Classic" areas such as systems, 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.
