With two days left before tickets to the CW International Conference reach full price (£150/members, £450/non-members), CW is pleased to announce additional speakers, sponsors and exhibitors who will help make your decision to buy "Early Bird" easy.
The Future Mobility track is now finalised and Magna will be joined by Centrica, Aurrigo and Innovia. Their session is set to explore the new technologies that are enabling a dramatic transformation in the automotive and connected services sector. The speakers bring to the table the expertise of a global automotive supplier, a leader in first and last mile autonomous vehicles, an energy company, and an innovation consultancy that has worked with the likes of Jaguar Land-Rover, Rolls-Royce and Shell. With the growing financial and environmental pressures on vehicle ownership, and new services business models emerging, the disruption to this industry will be significant. The technology industry needs to collaborate closely with this sector to enable a successful transformation over the coming decades.
Andy Rhodes of 42 Technology is chairing the Manufacturing track and has carefully curated it such that Duncan McFarlane, Head of the Distributed Information & Automation Laboratory, Institute of Manufacturing, University of Cambridge will share the stage with Lina Huertas, Head of Technology Strategy, Manufacturing Technology Centre. We are still anticipating another speaker for this session to support the discussion around the technologies delivering the incremental improvements on international productivity, and how the UK's knowledge intensive sector can embed itself in this all important industry.
The final significant entries into the agenda include our first confirmed speaker for the Cybersecurity debate that will close the day. Nigel Jefferies, Senior Standards Manager from Huawei will be taking a seat next to Simon Fletcher of Real Wireless to converse on what features are needed to inspire trust in future telecommunication systems. Meanwhile in the Intelligent Cities track, Clare Wildfire, Global Practice Lead for Cities, Mott MacDonald will be joining Siemens, Smart Cambridge, SenSat and Marks & Clerk; and in the Utilities track Harald Kröll, Principal Product Manager (Chipsets) at u-blox will join Anglian Water, EDF Energy and TTP.
