For the 21st year in a row, National Instruments will hold its NIWeek global graphical system design conference, which is expected to bring together more than 3,200 engineers and scientists across various industries, including imaging and machine vision professionals, manufacturing engineers, machine builders, researchers, quality control engineers, and academic professionals.

From August 3-6 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas, attendees will have the opportunity to choose from more than 220 interactive technical sessions, case study presentations, and panel discussions for beginners and advanced developers to learn how to optimize efficiency in test and data acquisition systems; understand how to implement advanced technology for industrial design, measurement, and control; and discover emerging trends in science and industry.

NI Week will also feature four four technical tracks that will enable attendees to learn the latest toolsand techniques in both lecture-style and hands-on sessions. Track topics include automated test systems, data acquisition systems, embedded systems, and software development techniques. NI will also hold two special events/workshops on "Building your own embedded systems," and a "trend watch series," which will cover the tools and technologies related to the Internet of Things.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to browse an exhibition of nearly 150 companies, including the following NI Product Showcase and Pavilions:

  • LabVIEW Zone
  • Automated Test Pavilion
  • Data Acquisition Pavilion
  • Embedded Control and Monitoring Pavilion
