AUGUST 29--National Instruments (Austin, TX) has announced plans for the NI Technical Symposium, a series of measurement and automation conferences in 14 cities across the United States and Canada. The NI Technical Symposium begins Oct. 2 in Montreal, Canada, and wraps up Dec. 6 in Golden, CO. An estimated 2500 engineers, developers, educators, and NI Alliance Program members are expected to gather at the events to exchange ideas on the latest industry trends, learn innovative new development methods to solve today's challenges, and receive hands-on training on NI's most recent software and hardware.
Technical presentation topics at the conferences range from setting up a data-logging application in the lab to building a precision alignment system for semiconductor, fiberoptics, or information appliance manufacturing using machine vision and motion control. Attendees can catch up on the latest in real-time technology, learn about building smaller PXI manufacturing test systems, or find out how to greatly reduce the costs of their measurement systems while expanding channel count.
In addition, attendees can participate in hands-on presentations where they can learn to create basic and advanced applications in LabVIEW, a graphical development environment; Measurement Studio, a set of fully integrated measurement tools that complement the most popular programming languages; or TestStand, NI's test-management environment.
