National Instruments Hosts Technical Conferences in 60 Cities Worldwide

7/10/2002 - National Instruments today announced plans for NIDays 2002-2003: Building Knowledge with Technology, the company's annual series of virtual instrumentation conferences that reaches 35 countries and 60 cities across the world this fall. Engineers from around the globe -- from Sweden to Japan to Brazil -- can attend NI's top technical presentations without traveling far from home.

An estimated 8,250 engineers, developers, educators, and NI Alliance Program members plan to attend the conferences across Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America to exchange ideas on innovative approaches to technical challenges, study future technology trends in virtual instrumentation, and learn first-hand how NI's software and hardware can save them time and money.

"At NIDays, attendees from around the world learn from NI developers and colleagues how they can benefit from standard, affordable computer technology through NI's powerful software and modular hardware," said John Graff, NI Vice President of Marketing.

During keynote presentations and technical sessions, attendees hear from NI engineers and managers on the hottest industry topics, such as integrating motion and vision into measurement systems, leveraging Windows XP and .NET technology for test and measurement applications, and creating real-time applications. In addition, attendees receive information and training on NI products, such as TestStand, NI's fast, flexible test management environment, and NI Switch Executive, the measurement and automation industry's first open switch management software, which lowers the cost of manufacturing test.

NIDays builds on the success of NIWeek, NI's worldwide measurement and automation conference held annually since 1993 near the company's headquarters in Austin, Texas. National Instruments designed NIDays to bring NIWeek to customers around the world in their native languages. For more information and a complete listing of all locations, visit
