Smart Building Smart Home Congress

2016-04-21 08:00


The Federation of Electricity and Electronics will be organising the second edition of the international congress “Smart Buildings - Smart Homes”

At the congress, we will provide information about the latest technological developments and innovations that apply to the design, realisation and exploitation of buildings.

In addition, this congress will be extended to cover developments and applications for Smart Homes for which the Internet of Things has a key function. Applications designed for the smart management of energy consumption that increase the comfort of users of buildings. However there is still a lot of work to be done to move away from all the different protocols that are currently used to activate individual solutions and to move towards integrated systems.

This congress has secured the participation of well known national and international speakers from the academic world, blue chip companies from the industry and the political world.

The congress will take place in the new auditorium of the Ghelamco Arena in Ghent. A good opportunity to demonstrate the smart techniques used in this newly built football stadium.

After the academic vision from the universities of Gent and Leuven, we will have the view on future developments from industry captains and we will end with the Belgium political vision.

The political vision will demonstrate our ambition as a country with high-tech capabilities and our aim to play a significant role in the developments and investments in this area. The vision from the government will be brought by Alexander De Croo - minister for the digital agenda, postal services and telecom.

Managing energy consumption in addition to providing comfort in a user friendly way is the main objective of the Smart Buildings & Homes congress.
