Thank you very much to all attendees, speakers and sponsors for a successful Wireless Congress 2016!!
The 13th edition of the Wireless Congress took place on 9th and 10th November 2016 in the International Congress Center in Munich (ICM) in Germany and was – as every second year – co-located with the electronica trade fair. The annual highlight of the wireless community was characterised again by growth in quantity and quality.
The number of 450 participants reached a long-term high. And there were so many qualified paper submissions that the program committee of the Wireless Congress decided to offer four parallel tracks over two full days with 64 presentations, 2 keynotes and 8 tutorials, which were all intensively visited. We see this success as the result of two trends:
• To broaden the area of wireless applications, requiring different features and characteristics, new wireless technologies have to be developed in the near future – with differing focuses on long range, high data rate, low latency, ultra-low energy, security and safety. Developers, design and system engineers need information and know how to stay up to date in the fast progress in a rapidly changing wireless world.
• The wireless world is characterised more and more by alliances and joint efforts for physical and logical interoperability of wireless devices. The Wireless Congress collaborates with many of them and thus, we could offer sessions or tutorials for 6LoWPAN, Bluetooth, DECT/ULE, EnOcean, IP500, KNX, LoRa/LoRaWAN, RFID, SIGFOX, Thread, Weightless, Z Wave, ZigBee, and also – and this clearly extends the focus from the last years – on the upcoming cellular mobile technologies in 4G and 5G.
Save the Date!
If you want to learn more and want to stay at the wireless technology edge, then we are looking forward to see you at the 14th edition of the Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications, which is scheduled to take place on 15th and 16th November, 2017 in the Konferenzzentrum Munich (Germany).
