NI Takes Virtual Instrumentation Conferences to 91 Cities Worldwide

9/14/2004 - National Instruments announced open registration for the 2004-2005 NIDays worldwide conference and the NI Technical Symposium, the company’s annual series of virtual instrumentation conferences that reach 42 countries and 91 cities. Beginning in early October and running through April 2005, engineers from around the globe will attend NIDays or NI Technical Symposium for new product presentations, hands-on technical sessions and exhibits on the latest solutions for test, measurement and control applications.

As a part of the international NIDays, an estimated 10,000 engineers, developers, educators and National Instruments Alliance Partner Program members will attend the conferences across Europe, Latin America and Asia-Pacific. Attendees will have the opportunity to exchange ideas on innovative approaches to technical challenges, study future technology trends in virtual instrumentation and learn firsthand how NI software and hardware can save them time and money. NI Technical Symposium brings similar conferences to 29 cities across the United States.

“Virtual instrumentation has achieved mainstream acceptance in test and measurement and is expanding rapidly into new areas such as control and design,” said John Graff, NI vice president of marketing. “The technical presentations at NIDays and NI Technical Symposium will show the latest advances in our modular instrumentation suite of products as well as the new features in NI LabVIEW that are tailored to engineers working with control systems and electronic design.”

NIDays and NI Technical Symposium attendees also have the chance to learn about new NI software – such as NI SignalExpress and LabVIEW 7.1 – and new NI hardware – including CompactRIO and M Series, the next generation of multifunction data acquisition devices. These products offer greater flexibility, faster system development and increased system performance. Additionally, attendees will hear from experts on the hottest industry topics during keynote presentations and technical sessions.

NIDays and NI Technical Symposium build on the success of NIWeek, the worldwide virtual instrumentation conference held annually since 1995 near the company’s headquarters in Austin, Texas. NIWeek 2004 concluded in late August with a record attendance of more than 2,000 people who participated in hands-on training, interactive technical sessions, exhibitions and workshops. National Instruments designed NIDays and NI Technical Symposium to bring the excitement and learning opportunities of NIWeek to customers around the world in their native languages and with local NI experts.
