Stream 1. Electronics in Action:
Agtech: Agriculture is being transformed by the availability of low cost applications driving both precision farming and innovative practice. Electronics is the enabling technology in this development.
Space: This is the era of privatised space where space-based solutions are available to SME’s. This stream will offer an opportunity to hear from some successful pioneers and to explore the opportunities.
Sensors and loT: Sensor technology underpins loT products. This stream will address new and emerging sensor technologies and what’s happening for older technologies. Competing low power communication technologies and trends in power sources will also be explored.
New Frontiers in Innovation: As part of this stream we plan to seek out the latest innovative technologies in our South Australian and Australian community to showcase our wonderful city’s capacity and capability and what is happening in Australia. A series of local industry visits will be scheduled for the pre-conference days.
Stream 2. Our Industry – Sustaining ourselves:
Bringing the latest thinking and research around issues affecting the electronics industry, including Innovation, Workforce planning and STEM Education, Value Chain progression and Intellectual Property Management and Trade development.
Stream 3. Our Technology – The base our industry depends on for growth and innovation:
PCB Technology – Industries like the LED lighting industry and smartphone industry have created new PCB technologies – but green fibreglass plates live on. How will new technologies affect the design process? Regulatory Compliance. New aspects of compliance appear as fast as new technologies emerge, e.g. transport restrictions on Lithium Cells. What are the emerging issues and solutions?
Stream 4. The future – Climate Change, Waste and The Circular Economy:
How will our Industry face the challenges of climate change, the enormous build-up of E- Waste world-wide, the burgeoning demand for rare elements our industry depends on. Do we need better solutions for sustainability? This stream will focus on what opportunities this presents for new businesses and innovation in established ones.
The World Electronics Forum and International Conference will be hosted by Electronics Industry Development Adelaide(EIDA), the association of the 300 high-technology electronics design, manufacturing and support companies in Adelaide.
This is the first time the annual World Electronic Forum has been held in Australia since Canberra 2003 and provides a fantastic opportunity to engage with world industry
The forum will highlight Adelaide’s particular character as the perfect sized city to support a thriving technology ecosystem. It will also serve as Adelaide’s chance to show the capability and versatility of the local electronics industry to world electronics industry leaders.
