MicroConsult and ELEKTRONIKPRAXIS have released the programme for the second Embedded Software Engineering Kongress, which will be held at Congress Center Stadthalle Sindelfingen from 8th to 10th December 2009. I’m always impressed at the success that German publishers have when organising conferences: the three-day event promises a packed programme of 90 presentations and 10 in-depth seminars. Perhaps even more impressive is that the first event drew almost 600 attendees, reflecting the fact that most technical events focused on a specific subject continue to attract good visitors numbers in Europe.
