University of Glasgow, 29 June – 2 July 2015

Complimentary Workshop Places available (29 June)


The IEEE PRIME (PhD Research In Microelectronics and Electronics) Conference reflects the wide spectrum of research topics in microelectronics and electronics. The benefits in attending IEEE PRIME 2015 are in:

  • Sharing and debating experiences and challenges in adopting new technologies
  • Discussing the challenges of moving research to commercialisation
  • Understanding research across Europe that is relevant to your business
  • Identifying potential engineers to address skills shortages
  • Discussing challenges for researchers and other businesses

Workshop: Technology Adoption within Complex and Volatile Global Markets

This full day event focuses on technology adoption around the areas of mobile health and sustainable future cities. Led by speakers from industry, and with a Chaired Q&A panel at the end of each session, there will be four exploration areas:

  • Policy: How can policy makers increase the speed of technology adoption? To what extent do standards or lack of standards slow the pace of deploying new technologies?
  • Interoperability: The challenges in creating autonomous systems, ubiquitous sensing in real-time systems, and differing local resources, sensing or environmental needs.
  • Human Machine Interaction: How can R&D more holistically consider the social aspects and user adoption concerns from new technologies, e.g., remote piloted aircraft, autonomous vehicles or robotics.
  • Business & Market Challenges: The commercial challenges of exploiting high quality research to achieve impact for SMEs and large companies, including case studies.

Complimentary Workshop Places

The IEEE PRIME Organising Committee is offering a limited number of complimentary places at the workshop aimed at recent undergraduates, current postgraduate or postdoctoral students, and industry interested in innovation within the HEI sector.
