Experience the Future of Consumer Tech at the ICCE 2014 Consumer Electronics Conference
ICCE 2014 Theme: Next Generation Mobility
Gary Shapiro, President and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association Keynotes Friday
Note: CES registered News Media enjoy complimentary conference registration and access to technical papers.
LAS VEGAS––The 32nd IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE) is focusing on Next Generation Mobility. Many of the engineering papers presented detail breakthroughs in technologies and circuitry which will empower much of the personal Internet of Things - widely estimated to be tens of billions of devices this decade. Gary Shapiro, President and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association, keynotes on conference day one (Friday) the last day of the 2014 International CES. Gildas Sorin, CEO of Novaled, will follow CEA's Shapiro with "The OLED Ascent."
ICCE at CES is the world’s leading Consumer Electronics Conference and has a long history with many of the industry’s leading researchers participating and sharing advances in consumer technologies and designs. This year, papers relating to Next Generation Mobility are particularly strong. ICCE 2014 will start and overlap with the final day of CES (Friday) and ends Monday, January 13.
"Our 2014 conference theme is Next Generation Mobility, the “2.0” level of experience with the promise of collective intelligence, richer features and functionality, as well as improved connectivity, interoperability and interaction for the large and growing base of smartphone users. These benefits have the potential to enhance consumer life in diverse areas, including entertainment, healthcare, travel, education and human communication – but many obstacles still remain," said ICCE General Chair Tom Wilson. "ICCE is the platform where technology enablers and prototypes are debuted before they appear in products," added Wilson.
"The smartphone is becoming the universal convergence device," affirms ICCE Technical Program Chair Fernando Pescador. "The 1st generation is already here, but the Next Generation of applications and services for Mobility is quickly approaching. In this way, the main theme of ICCE2014 is focused on the applications that will change the market of the smart phones and tablets during the next few years.
More than 100 papers over four days will detail advances in the technologies which will deliver UHD TV to consumers and society, secure personal and professional data and sensors which will change the way we work, learn and play will be presented in the sessions. Also, advanced camera and video sensors, automotive systems including "smart vehicles", and the increasing popularity of MEMS technology.
"Health care, wearable textiles, and assistive technologies will be discussed. Many of these papers will form the foundation of the products and services for the CES 2015 and 2016," says ICCE publicity chair Richard Doherty.
Special invited sessions will highlight advances in smart grid, transportation, life sciences along with the challenges of designing Green and sustainable electronics products
Keynote topics include next generation mobility, powerful image editing & correction, with special luncheon keynotes on "Mobile Devices for a Better Health" (Johannes Clauss), "The Third Platform and the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative" (Stephen L. Diamond, Chair of the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative) and a "Next Generation Mobility" panel. IEEE Fellow Stu Lipoff chairs that panel and an awards ceremony and discussion panel Sunday, which includes "The Best of CES.'
