Full Agenda Here

The conference will start with keynote talks on Industrie 4.0 and OPC UA, as seen from the perspective of the OPC Foundation, VDMA, and the FieldComm Group.

The conference is to be scheduled in such a way that it can also be attended by non-fair visitors without an overnight stay in Hannover. Afterwards, the participants will have the opportunity to discuss and network with different working groups within the OPC UA CS standardization in 3 sessions. Each workgroup will present its vision and mission in each of the sessions. The sessions will take place at each group’s theme table. The working group representatives will be at their theme table, with visitors of the conference rotating between the theme tables after each session.

This event is intended to show the near-term future of seamless information exchange using secured and standardized information and interfaces. End-users and development engineers should join this event to receive early insights into future work and to network with key influencers.

Participation in this event is free of charge  and includes a free ticket for Hannover Messe.
