ZigBee Alliance Fall 2011 Members Meeting - OPEN TO PUBLIC

This free public workshop will provide attendees the opportunity to exchange wireless sensor network (WSN) information on standards, markets and projects, with a particular focus on the European market.  Attendees will gain an understanding of European Commission research and development in this area as well as a view of local projects and deployments in Spain.

This workshop brings together researchers, developers, program managers and ZigBee subject matter experts to share information on projects, research and development, deployments and markets for wireless sensors in Europe. Sharing experiences and vision into the future on requirements and results of R&D projects related to WSN will enable participants to identify opportunities to exploit new results as well as allow researchers to understand how commercial markets drive ZigBee standard development.

The workshop is a collaborative effort by i2CAT, a research and innovation center in Barcelona, the European Commission (EC) Framework 7 R&D program and the ZigBee Alliance.
Advanced registration is required to attend this free workshop.
