NIWeek on Offer in May

National Instruments to draw thousands of users to Austin, Texas.


National Instruments is putting on its annual NIWeek conference and exhibition this month, May 21-24 at the Austin Convention Center in the capital of Texas.

Details on the agenda and the full four-day program are available here.

I’ve attended NIWeek for the past two years, and it’s an opportunity to learn new things, see impressive product demonstrations, and hear about developments in a variety of technologies – 5G, autonomous/electric vehicles, the Internet of Things, military/aerospace, networking, test and measurement, and more.

Thousands of users from around the world will be attending NIWeek 2018.

The technical sessions are gathered into four “summit” tracks – Academic, Aerospace and Defense, Automotive, and Semiconductor. You’ll catch me haunting the Automotive and Semiconductor sessions in particular.

The exhibit hall at the convention center will open on Monday evening, May 21, for the Lone Star Welcome Reception. The exhibits will be open basically all day on Tuesday and Wednesday, with the Beer with Engineers Networking Reception on Tuesday evening.

The social events at NIWeek 2018 include the afterparty at ACL Live at The Moody Theater on Wednesday evening.

See you in the Live Music Capital of the World!
