The Future World Symposium will take place on 29th and 30th April at the iconic Twickenham Stadium. This forward-looking event, aimed at senior industry professionals, is organised by NMI, the trade association representing the UK Electronic Systems, Microelectronics and Semiconductor Communities.
The UK electronic systems industry has great opportunities in the smarter, connected and electronically enabled world and the Future World Symposium has been designed to bring leading players together with government, academia and key stakeholder to define these and ask 'What will hold us back?'
The event will feature four half-day sessions focusing on the following key themes:
- Connected Home (session sponsor Imagination Technologies)
- Connected Intelligence (session sponsor Freescale)
- The Internet of Things (session sponsor ARM)
- Autonomous Systems (session sponsor Altran)
As an ESCO (Electronic Systems Community) partner event, the conference will also feature the first official updates since the publication of the original industry led ESCO Report (2013) A Blueprint for UK Economic Growth, prepared for government to identify activities and technologies that will enable significant growth for the UK electronic systems sector.
The opening address on the first day of the Future World Symposium will be given by the Rt Hon Michael Fallon MP, Minister for Business and Enterprise. On day two of the conference, the opening address will be given by Khalil Rouhana, the director for "Components & Systems" in DG CONNECT (Communications Networks, Content & Technology). The conference will also feature presentations by analysts and senior executives from the world's leading systems and technology brands.
