ESE Kongress - Germany's Largest Congress for Professional Embedded Software Engineering


Embedded Software Engineering Kongress is a joint event of MicroConsult and ELEKTRONIKPRAXIS. It is the only German-language convention that focuses exclusively and extensively on the manifold issues and challenges with respect to the development of device and system software for industrial applications, automotive engineering, automation, drives, measurement systems, communication systems as well as consumer electronics and medical devices.

ESE Kongress with more than 100 presentations and seminars is a platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience and for making contact with other experts across many different industries. Since 2008, it has been THE meeting point for the embedded industry.

Review: ESE Kongress 2018

ESE Kongress stays on the road to success. ESE 2018 was once more characterized by top-quality presentations, fascinating trends and attendees in an excellent mood, hosting about 1,200 visitors from 386 companies and institutes. All of the 113 presentations and seminars were well-attended, 44 presentations even had more than 100 attendees.

52 exhibitors presented their products, solutions and services in the exhibition foyer, with plenty of time for networking and discussion during the breaks. The social program, comprising parties, the traditional kicker tournament and the entertaining, finely tuned performance by satirian Michael Altinger, further contributed to the success of ESE Kongress.

ESE 2019

The agenda for ESE 2019 will be finalized and published around end of August.
Visitor registration will commence in September.
