Online PR News – 02-May-2013 – Washington, DC – The Wireless Innovation Forum (www.WirelessInnovation.org) announced today the program for the 2013 Wireless Innovation Forum European Conference on Communications Technologies and software defined radio, to be held 11-13 June 2013 in Munich, Germany.

Attracting delegates including investors, commercial network operators, radio manufacturers, system integrators, government procurement officials, regulators, engineering service providers and consultants, SDR-WInnComm-Europe is the only European event devoted to the advancement of wireless radio technologies from research through deployment. The program features three days of keynotes by industry leaders, eight technical sessions, 5G panel, invited presentations, a day-long tactical radio Workshop and an ALOE Framework and Waveform Design Tutorial.

Due to the caliber of professionals that attend and present their work and outstanding keynote speakers it is a venue where engineers customers and executives can communicate with each other about wireless communications system requirements design products use cases and have meaningful impact within their respective domains because of this interaction.

“The SDR-WInnComm European Conference consistently delivers strategically relevant programming to the commercial, defense and academic wireless communications systems innovators and this year is no exception” said Conference Chair Kuan Collins of SAIC. "Due to the caliber of professionals that attend and present their work, and outstanding keynote speakers, it is a venue where engineers, customers, and executives can communicate with each other about wireless communications system requirements, design, products, use cases and have meaningful impact within their respective domains because of this interaction.”

Keynotes will include:
• Dr. Marc Adrat, Project Manager Software Defined Radio, Fraunhofer FKIE
• Dr. Boyd Buchin, Head of Sales Army Communication Systems Germany, Rohde & Schwarz
• Manfred Fleischmann, President and CEO, Rohde & Schwarz
