ETFA2016 offers a high quality technical program featuring keynotes and plenary sessions, interesting and important satellite events to include the Industry Day, and an attractive social program with the banquet dinner and a boat trip through the center of Berlin.
It is a long standing tradition of the ETFA conference series to cooperate with the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society and, therefore, the 2016 event is also co-sponsored by the IEEE society.
2016, the event is held in Germany and organized by the Fraunhofer IOSB-INA and inIT- Institute Industrial IT. Located in Ostwestfalen-Lippe (OWL), one of Germany's strongest regions of mechanical engineering and industrial electronics, both institutes are carrying out research and development in intelligent automation technologies. OWL is Germany's leading edge technology cluster for intelligent technical systems (it's OWL), awarded by the german government in 2012.
