Hands On

See also: Industry Exhibition, Local Map

September 5, 2000
This day features special industry presentations on the actual application of emerging technologies in factory communication systems and industrial automation, and "hands-on" demonstrations involving industrial equipment. We trust this arrangement will provide an opportunity for more intimate interaction between the industry and academia. It should also serves as an opportunity for researchers from the academia to learn about new and relevant problems and challenges emerging from actual industrial applications.

Session Chair: R. Zurawsky (9:00-10:30 talks) E. Tovar (11:00-12:30 and 16:00-19:30 talks)
