The embedded world Exhibition&Conference 2021 DIGITAL will be held from March 1-5, 2021.
With the decision to stage embedded world 2021 in a purely digital format, NürnbergMesse has set the course in good time towards a virtual event for which everyone can prepare. The conferences will also be held digitally and will thus be even more closely interlinked with the exhibition.
From 1 to 5 March 2021, the embedded world Conference and electronic displays Conference will share a platform with embedded world exhibition 2021 DIGITAL. To accommodate this configuration, the event formats were extended from the usual three days to five days. A clear, user-friendly structure allows participants to readily navigate the two high-calibre conferences featuring various moderated activities, top-class keynote speeches, panel discussions on current challenges, and a range of special topics.
With more than 250 presentations, embedded world conference 2021 DIGITAL delivers a comprehensive and in-depth programme. For the first time, participants will be able to listen to presentations that take place simultaneously, as all sessions will be recorded and can be viewed during and for two weeks after the live phase of the event. Because the event is spread over five days, this round of the electronic displays conference can be held without parallel sessions. In respect of content, the digital format will continue to provide the proven features of the analogue event, i.e. professional expertise and topicality, an overarching interdisciplinary approach, an international focus, and diversity.
The public keynote addresses will continue to be a highlight of the conferences in the digital format as well. These keynotes are free of charge for all participants of embedded world 2021 DIGITAL. The following keynote speakers have been scheduled to take part in the programme:
»Embedded systems are an interdisciplinary technology that covers a lot of aspects. Accordingly, the topics to be discussed at the embedded world conference are wide-ranging: Internet-of-Things, hardware, software and systems engineering, safety and security, system-on-chip design, embedded vision, human-machine interaction, wired and wireless data transfer, or autonomous systems,« explains Professor Axel Sikora from the University of Offenburg, who also chairs the embedded world conference. As in the past, most abstracts submitted have been for the »Software and Systems Engineering« stream. As a result, this area will constitute a major part of the conference, with presentations on this topic every day of the event. Another mainstay is the category »Internet of Things«. The huge response from speakers and delegates shows that IoT systems are a megatrend in the embedded sector. The category »Autonomous Systems«, which also covers artificial intelligence and machine learning at the embedded world conference, has seen significant growth. This shows that these technologies are now increasingly moving from the research and prototype stage to the practical application phase. However, the embedded world conference also provides a platform for specialised topics like the development of application-specific chips, embedded vision, or human-machine interfaces.
Panel discussions on embedded artificial intelligence, safety and security, and embedded vision and connectivity in the IoT will provide a forum for lively debate on trending topics and allow participants to get involved. As well as half-hour presentations, the event will again feature a half-day or whole-day format known as »classes«, in which a topic is discussed in-depth in a smaller group.
