German publisher Huthig has launched a new conference for 2019. The Industry Electronics Congress will provide executives and specialists within the industrial electronics industry, the opportunity to find out first hand which solutions and technologies will be in demand for the future of the microelectronics market.

Taking place in Munich from May 22nd-23rd, visitors will be able to attend presentations from top-speakers in the industry, who will provide deep insight into both the requirements and the possible solutions of the future. Key topics to be covered will include: Robotics and Control, Artificial Intelligence, Power and Drivetrain, Safety & Security, Industrial IoT, Industry 4.0 and Smart City, Obsolescence, Metrology and Communication, 3D Printing and Manufacturing as well as Big Data and Virtual Reality.

“European manufacturers are world leaders in the segment of industrial electronics”, explains Alfred Vollmer, editor-in-chief of Huthig’s electronics media department. “However, in order to maintain this pole position, the companies involved do not only need the appropriate technical know-how, skills and tools; sometimes they also have to have a look beyond their own horizons – and this is why we will run this unusual conference. Furthermore, we will provide numerous opportunities for intensive networking along the entire value chain.”

The Industry Electronics Congress will purposely stay away from technical standard product presentations, and instead will focus on the big picture identifying system approaches as well as potential problems from the perspective of the electronics design engineer.

“We intentionally decided against a public call for papers”, explains Hans Jaschinski, editor-in-chief of elektronik industrie. “Instead, our editorial team deliberately approached experts from its extensive network in order to attract the right speakers. The final program shows that we have really achieved our goal to provide a versatile program with very interesting topics.”
