The 2016 edition will focus on the Internet of Things and its impact on industry, not to mention the exceptional intervention of Adriaan Rijllart who will reveal the secrets of CERN's Large Hadron Collider
NI announces its new edition of NIDays, the annual meeting of engineers, scientists and teachers. The event will take place on March 10, 2016 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris. More than 1,200 visitors will be expected to browse the exhibition and attend plenary conferences, technical presentations and hands-on sessions throughout the day.
Adriaan Rijllart, guest of honour at the event
Adrian Rijllart, Head of Measurement, Testing and Analysis at Cern, will be the guest of honour at the afternoon plenary conference. He will return to the project of the Great Hadron Collider of the Cern, one of the largest devices ever built to validate the physical theories and constituents of the Universe. Adrian Rijllart will explain how his team overcame the technical challenges of the world's largest particle accelerator.
Eric Starkloff, NI's Executive Vice President, will also be the keynote speaker at NIDays 2016. He will lead the morning plenary conference where he will explain how to shape the Internet of Things with a platform-based approach.
42 technical conferences will be held throughout the day, on the topics of automatic testing and instrumentation, on-board systems, data acquisition, measurement, radio frequencies and semiconductor testing. Not to mention conferences dedicated to the defence, aerospace, automotive, rail, energy and education sectors. These conferences will be moderated by high-level speakers from PSA Peugeot Citroen, Areva, Arcale, Daher and many others.
The Internet of Things, the keystone of this 19th edition of NIDays
The idea of a smarter world in which systems would be interconnected around the world to share information is gradually becoming more important in all sectors of the industry. This Internet of Things applies to connected homes, connected health, recreation, but also agriculture, energy, cities, factories and smart grids.
Both plenary conferences will focus on this theme, whether to understand how a platform-based approach overcomes the increasing complexity of systems and expands the Internet of Things network, or to explain how NI is helping to create an innovation-friendly climate in which future engineers will take advantage of the real potential of IoT.
Also on NIDays:
- An exhibition of 70 booths, divided into activity clusters (sensors, vision and robotics, teaching and RF) on which will be presented the complementary products and solutions of NI's partners.
- 14 hands-on sessions of LabVIEW graphic programming, data acquisition, real-time testing and validation, on-board control/control system design, software radio, teaching solutions, and automatic testing with PXI instrumentation.
- Two Robotic Cups, which will see 20 teams compete. The NXT Cup (based on the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT kit) will bring together teams from high schools, BTS/IUT and CPGE. The RIO Cup (based on National Instruments' Starter Kit Robotics) is intended for teams from universities and engineering schools.
- LabVIEW CLAD(Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer)certification sessions in the presence of an NI engineer.
