Thank you for attending IEEE ETFA'2015 in Luxembourg!
The organizers would like to thank our more than 320 participants of the 20th IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation ETFA 2015 in Luxembourg City, 08 - 11 September 2015!
We hope to meet you all again at IEEE ETFA 2016 in Berlin!
It is a long standing tradition of the ETFA conference series to cooperate with the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society and therefore also the 2015 event was co-sponsored by this IEEE society.
This year the event was held for the first time in Luxembourg and co-sponsored by the University of Luxembourg and its Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT). Founded in 2003, the University of Luxembourg is the first and only university of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and also one of the youngest universities in Europe. Multilingual, international and research-oriented, it is also a modern institution with a personal atmosphere. Currently, more than 6000 students originating from 107 different countries are studying at the University which offers 11 Bachelor and 32 Master programs as well as doctoral education and doctoral schools.
The creation of SnT (2009) should be seen in the context of the government’s strategy to raise the competitiveness of Luxembourg and diversify the country’s economy, notably towards the ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) sector, also comprising Automation and Robotics.
ETFA2015 offered a high quality technical program featuring 3 keynote and 2 plenary sessions as well as a panel discussion on the “Prospects for the Growth of Hi-tech Startup Industry Sector in Europe”, interesting and important satellite events to include the Industry Day, and an attractive social program with the banquet dinner on a boat on the Moselle river. Thank you again for attending the conference and your stay in Luxembourg!
