The conference will take place at the New Munich Trade Fair Center, November 11-13, 2002 in Munich and will include a technical conference and an embedded systems exhibits pavilion showcasing the latest technologies from leading vendors.

The Embedded Systems Conference Munich will present a variety of keynotes, tutorials and technical sessions aimed at providing design engineers, engineering managers and software designers with practical ideas and solutions they can immediately apply in their work. Typical sessions will cover topics such as architecture selection and specification, software design, programming and debugging, and hardware/software integration.

In 2003 the Embedded Systems Conference Munich will be held in November in conjunction with an international trade show for embedded technology, Embedded in Munich 2003. These events will be co-located with Productronica 2003, the international trade show for electronics production.
