National Instruments Offer Technical Conferences in 39 Countries

8/20/2003 - National Instruments announced plans for the NIDays 2003-2004 worldwide conference on virtual instrumentation, the company's annual series of technical conferences reaching 39 countries and 61 cities worldwide. NIDays begins Sept. 23 in Seoul, South Korea, and runs through late April 2004, when NI holds its last conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. During the conferences, engineers around the globe can attend technical presentations and hands-on sessions without traveling far from home.

Engineers, developers, educators and National Instruments Alliance Partners attend the conferences across Europe, Latin America and Asia-Pacific to exchange ideas on innovative approaches to technical challenges, study future technology trends in virtual instrumentation and learn first-hand how NI software and hardware can save them time and money.

"At this conference, attendees take an in-depth look at the latest developments in measurement and automation and receive information and technical training on our newest introductions such as LabVIEW 7 Express," said John Graff, NI vice president of marketing. "This major LabVIEW release combines Express VIs with I/O and data acquisition assistants to significantly improve ease of use while expanding the power of virtual instrumentation."

NIDays attendees also have the chance to learn about other new NI software, such as TestStand 3.0, Measurement Studio 7.0, LabWindows/CVI 7.0, and new NI hardware, including the Compact Vision System and three new mixed-signal PXI instruments. Together, the products offer more flexibility, faster system development and higher system performance. Additionally, attendees will hear from NI engineers on the hottest industry topics during keynote presentations and technical sessions, such as integrating measurements into the design phase of a product life cycle.

NIDays builds on the success of NIWeek, the worldwide virtual instrumentation conference held annually since 1993 near the company's headquarters in Austin, Texas. NIWeek 2003 concluded last week with record attendance of more than 1,500 people participating in hands-on training, interactive technical sessions, exhibitions and workshops on the latest products and technologies. 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
