This year’s CW International Conference (CWIC) 2019, entitled “Digitising Industry”, will take place on June 26 at the Wellcome Genome Campus.

The popular one-day conference, now in its 11th year, will explore the ways in which industry is accelerating the development of world-changing technological innovations and will showcase how manufacturing, retail and consumer electronics, agriculture, utilities, smart cities and transport are digitising their individual verticals.

A keynote will be delivered by Mansoor Hanif, chief technology officer at Ofcom, and additional plenaries are being planned for Bluetooth and cyber security.

CW has announced the return of its popular annual conference with a call for speakers and a time-limited release of early-bird tickets.

This ambitious conference is the gateway for companies wishing to network with the Cambridge technology community. In 2018, delegates were treated to insights from 30 expert speakers across six tracks. Highlights included the likes of Avis Budget Group, BP, BT, Inmarsat, Finning and the Robert Bosch Group. Dame Wendy Hall delivered the after-dinner talk on artificial intelligence. The 2019 Conference Committee is chaired by Derek Long, head of mobile & telecoms, wireless & digital services at Cambridge Consultants.

“The International Conference has established itself as a must-attend event for uncovering new partnerships and participating in realistic, knowledgeable technology debates,” says Derek, who chaired the blockchain section last year and has now stepped into the wider role.

“This year we are further extending the conversation to vertical markets by giving a platform to cutting-edge R&D. There are too few opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing between the technology sector and vertical markets; CWIC 2019 will fill that gap and I hope that the day will be the source of valuable inter-disciplinary collaborations.”

Early bird tickets start from £75 for CW members or £300 for non-members. Full details on speakers, tickets, sponsorship and attendance here.
