Integrated Systems Europe 2020’s professional development programme will feature over 200 leading experts from a wide variety of disciplines and subject areas across five days of keynotes, conferences, masterclasses, workshops and presentations.
Presented under the umbrella title ‘Learn. Discover. Be Inspired’, the programme has been produced by Integrated Systems Events working in close co-operation with AV industry bodies – in particular, its co-owning associations AVIXA and CEDIA – media partners and other independent organisations.
The programme includes an Opening Address; 13 conferences across five days in the Hotel Okura and RAI Amsterdam, organised by ISE, AVIXA, CEDIA and media partners – a record number for ISE; a four-day training programme from CEDIA; AVIXA FlashTracks (on Stand 13-N110) and CEDIA Talks (on Stand 1-E20), and a full programme of free thought leadership sessions on the Main Stage in Hall 14 (sponsored by Shure).
The Opening Address on Monday 10 February will be given by Duncan Wardle, a consultant to Disney who was previously Head of Innovation and Creativity at the entertainment giant. His presentation, ‘Think Different’, will look at how companies can re-awaken traits in their employees such as imagination, intuition and curiosity to create an environment that fosters creativity and innovation.
On Monday 10th February, CEDIA’s Cybersecurity Workshop will be led by Jeff Sonnleitner, a professional network and security instructor with over 35 years’ experience. He is a Network Specialist and Information Security Instructor at Moraine Park Technical College, Wisconsin. The workshop will cover all aspects of network security and privacy for professionals working in either the residential or the commercial space.
Also on the 10th February, the award-winning architect Aryanour Djalali, founder and CEO of DNA Barcelona Architects, will give a keynote at the Smart Building Conference. His keynote will be entitled ‘Smart Nature, Smarter Buildings’.
Speaking at the inaugural Control Rooms Summit ISE on Tuesday 11 February will be Rossano Giachino, Control Centre Manager at CERN since 2008. Giachino was in charge of control centre operations for the Large Hadron Collider during its operation, as well as for two other particle accelerators, the Super Proton Synchrotron and the Large Electron Positron.
Two more show features have recently been added to the ISE 2020 content programme. In Hall 14, the VR at ISE feature will contain two very different interactive virtual reality exhibits. Two Digital Projection Multiview VR systems will be demonstrated, each of which allows up to three people to view and interact with a stereoscopic 3D virtual model. Each person sees the object from their own viewpoint.
The other part of the VR at ISE feature will be an immersive VR theme park ride. Designed and run by Lightspeed Design, this DepthQ VR attraction will take attendees on an interactive fantasy ride through aquatic environments.
A spectacular projection mapping on the RAI’s Elicium building will delight ISE 2020 attendees and Amsterdam locals each evening of the show. The upper floors of the futuristic nine-storey building at the front of the exhibition centre will be transformed by the projection, specially created for this location. The projection will be produced by ISE and the RAI, supported by seven technology partners.
Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, said: “I’m very pleased to acknowledge the role of AVIXA, CEDIA and our many content partners in producing such a compelling line-up for ISE 2020. Added to this, the Elicium projection mapping and the VR at ISE feature are two more opportunities for our attendees to ‘Learn. Discover. Be Inspired’.”
