Conference venue 2024

The conference venue is the CinemaxX at Dammtordamm 1 in Hamburg. This modern cinema will open exclusively and entirely for the apc|m & SSI 2024. Large cinema seats and XXL cinema screens ensure a unique level of comfort. Thanks to the central location next to the ICE railway station Hamburg Dammtor in Hamburg's city centre and surrounded by numerous hotels, it will be a conference of short distances.

Conference venue 2024


Welcome to the Smart Systems Integration Conference! Our key mission is to align research, technology and dissemination activities along the entire value chain for future smart and sustainable system solutions. The Smart Systems community is joint by the system integration aspect covering the value chain from System on Chip via System in Package to System Applications – including hardware and software aspects. The conference connects participants from academia and industry as well as policy and decision makers. The three-day event is commonly organized by Fraunhofer ENAS together with the European Association on Smart Systems Integration – EPoSS to link technology and policy aspects in one event, while Silicon Saxony technically supports the conference organization.

The envisaged European autonomy on chips and the requirements for secure communication enhances the demand for joint efforts for integrated smart and sustainable system solutions on all levels. Still, the autonomy on chips must be discussed in the international context.

The special topic at the Smart Systems Integration 2024 will be dedicated to artificial intelligence in Smart Systems. This session, organized by the Fraunhofer ENAS, addresses AI hardware architectures, AI solutions for signal and sensor data fusion, application spaces as well as cross section topics like data privacy, security and human acceptance of AI. Beyond research and development topics, EPoSS as a co-organiser will hold sessions on strategy and business creation as well as on impact resulting from European funded projects in the domain of SSI.

In an engaging and compact format, the conference provides a unique and valuable opportunity to interact with the stakeholders of the Smart Systems community along the value chain by means of technical sessions, strategy panels, job opportunities, podium discussions and exhibition booths.

Networking at the SSI

Once again, the SSI will be co-located with apc|m europe at the same place and time. A single ticket allows you to attend both conferences and increase your networking range.
A variety of networking offers enrich the scientific program: Exhibition booths of sponsors, exhibitors and companies and job opportunities enable a fruitful transfer within the community. Book your next interview with the smart system integration experts in the conference app.

See you @ SSI 2024 in Hamburg!

Digitization is not only increasingly entering our lifes, it is a real game changer! There will be not only advances in individual components and subsystems necessary, especially connectivity and implementation of intelligence “at the edge” integrated in smart modules and systems will be the key. To be successful in future, interdisciplinary approaches are required more than ever.
