EMMSEC - Information on the EMMSEC conference series


The EMMSEC conferences developed out of a series of events organised around research projects funded by the European Commission's Esprit research programme, in the area of Embedded Microprocessor Systems.

Starting in Florence, Italy, in 1997, when the EMMSEC name was first used, the scope of the conference was expanded to include Electronic Commerce and Multimedia. EMMSEC 98 was held in Bordeaux, France, and EMMSEC 99 in Stockholm, Sweden, where the scope was expanded once more to include new Business Processes.

EMMSEC conferences have:

Plenary sessions on strategic issues and several parallel streams for technical papers;

Special sessions organised by Commission funded projects and relevant external organisations;

An exhibition with booths and demonstrations;

Informal discussions at coffee breaks, luncheons and cocktail receptions;

A partners programme that aids contacts and can attract more senior managers;

Full text proceedings as a published book.

The EMMSEC 97, 98 and 99 proceedings were all published by IOS Press in Amsterdam.

A number of European Commission funded projects in the past have used EMMSEC conferences as a platform for information dissemination and have organised special technical session. These projects include IDEALFIT, IDEALIST, BAPTISME, PROSOMA, DISAPORA, Prominent, MODES, ERMES and BENEFIT. In addition a number of other organisations, recognising the value of the EMMSEC conferences have organised special technical sessions. These organisations include: the IEEE 1355 Association, EITA (the European Information Technology Association), VSIA (the Virtual Socket Interface Association), SEIS, SCI-Europe and the UMTS Forum.
