The STUDENT DAY is well established as one of the highlights of the embedded world Exhibition&Conference and is being held in 2017 for the eighth time. Happening on the 16th March, 2017, the highlight on the morning of the third day will be a keynote presentation on the Internet of Uncanny Things by Sascha Wolter, senior manager connected home at Deutsche Telekom AG. He will talk about how designers and developers can live up to their responsibility to ensure security and privacy in the Internet of Things as everyday objects become smarter and are designed to know more about their users.
Just like the embedded world Exhibition&Conference, STUDENT DAY is a true magnet for success. Once again, the event expects more than 1,000 students from embedded systems-related courses of study at university-level schools in Nuremberg. In addition to bus transfers, admission to the exhibition and a presentation, the students also have a chance to get to know the embedded systems industry and make contact with potential employers. The highlight in 2017 will be a keynote speech by Sascha Wolter.
The embedded world event is the world’s most important exhibition for embedded systems technology. With its focus on enabling technology, it is the realm of everything to do with the Internet of Things.
Just like sessions at the embedded world Conference and the electronic displays Conference, the keynote speech, the lecture at the Student Day will also be given in English to accommodate the international audience.
The invitation to the STUDENT DAY is extended to universities in Germany, Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. “These institutions attract students from all over the world, as reflected in the international audience for the STUDENT DAY. So even at the training and education stage, the embedded community already demonstrates a global focus,” explains Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Sturm, chair of the embedded world fair advisory committee and originator of the STUDENT DAY.
