2012 NEM Summit
The NEM Summit is an international conference and exhibition, open to co-located events and organised every year since 2008 by Sigma Orionis and Eurescom on behalf of the NEM European Technology Platform for all those interested in Future Internet developments and in the fast paced evolution of the networked electronic media industry. Over the years, the NEM Summit has grown to become an annual not-to-be-missed event, providing attendees with a key opportunity to meet and network with prominent stakeholders, access up-to-date information, discover latest technology and market trends, identify research and business opportunities, and find partners for upcoming EU-funded calls.
The 2012 edition of the NEM Summit, prepared under the supervision of two General co-Chairs, of a Programme Committee, and of an Organizing Committee (see member lists at the bottom of the page), has been successfully held from October 16 to 18 at the Sheraton Ataköy Hotel of Istanbul, Turkey, on the theme “Implementing Future Media Internet towards new horizons”.
It has attracted over 320 delegates and over 20 exhibitors from Europe, Turkey and other regions of the world, and has been supported by over 25 sponsors (see logos below). The conference was structured in plenary and parallel thematic sessions, featuring 40 speakers and authors selected following a competitive call for papers.
Beyond the conference itself, the programme included:
- the European MediaTech Investment Forum organised by Media Deals with the support of the European Commission (DG CONNECT), to connect SMEs and entrepreneurs to European investors,
- a NEMart contest, a recurrent high profile fixture in the NEM Summit programme, inviting applications for real demonstrators/proofs of concept which clearly show the exciting opportunities existing when technology and art/design conjoin.
