Home > Press > Austin IEEE Wireless Conference Focuses on the Impact of Emerging Device Technology

Abstract:
The second annual IEEE Wireless Hive Networks Conference (WHNC) will be held August 7-8, 2008, at the Austin Courtyard by Marriott Hotel located near the Austin Convention Center. Collocated with NIWeek 2008 graphical system design conference and exhibition, the IEEE Conference will cover a variety of considerations in wireless hive networks including security issues, low power wireless protocols, and the testing and deployment of these networks. Additionally, WHNC has expanded to a two-day conference and added sponsors including the IEEE Central Texas Section Communications Chapter, the IEEE-USA, and the IEEE TA New Technology Directions Committee.

Austin IEEE Wireless Conference Focuses on the Impact of Emerging Device Technology

Austin, TX | Posted on July 29th, 2008

Jon Adams, director of radio technology and wireless strategy at Freescale Semiconductor, will deliver the Thursday keynote on the multitudes of enabling wireless technologies for hive networks. Dr. Walt Trybula, director of the Nanomaterials Application Center at Texas State University, will lead off the Friday sessions with a presentation on the impact of nanotechnology in low-cost hive networks. The two-day conference also will feature the latest research from industry and academia, including the Eaton Corporation, the University of Texas at Dallas, and UCLA. In addition to paper sessions, panel discussions are planned on wireless health and implementation issues with wireless hive networks. The complete program can be found at www.ieee-whnc.org.

IEEE Central Texas Communications and Signal Processing Chapter Chair Hanan Potash foresees wireless hive networks as a disruptive technology. "When wireless hive networks are in use, their economic impact may dominate the direction of semiconductors, warehousing, border defense, bioelectronics, and other industries," said Potash.

NIWeek 2008 will run August 5-7 at the Austin Convention Center. The conference features the RF and Wireless Communications Summit, which engages leading professors and industry experts in discussions on the advances in wireless technology.

"Wireless technology is advancing rapidly, and engineers and scientists are adopting this technology to reduce test costs and develop portable applications that were previously impossible," said National Instruments President, Cofounder and CEO James Truchard. "Through events such as the IEEE Wireless Hive Networks Conference and NIWeek, we are giving engineers and scientists both the knowledge and technical expertise to innovate on this technology and drive next-generation engineering."

Registration for the IEEE Wireless Hive Networks Conference 2008 is available online at www.ni.com/niweek.
