After the first rocking edition, Electronics Rocks is back with a bigger and better avatar. The second edition of Electronics Rocks 2013 is scheduled for 5-6 October, 2013 at NIMHANS Convention Centre, Bengaluru, which is a known hub for electronics design engineers.
‘Electronics Rocks’ aims to create the most exciting platform for India’s electronics design community to converge at. The event will feature keynote addresses, star speakers, technical tracks, workshops, an expo, innovation demos, et al. Our aim is to compel every electronics design engineer to be a part of this unique event.
Acknowledging the feedback from the design engineers who participated in the last edition, this year we have whole track dedicated to the Internet of Things(IoT). Another track focuses on Raspberry Pi and the latest most exciting projects that have been implemented with it. Moreover, we have an entire track on the latest hardware and software tools available for the design engineers. There will also be presentations from the R&D labs on the cutting-edge work happening in India. Electronics Rocks will also host a number of workshops and design competitions for the engineering community.
The event will be a conference-cum-expo, where electronics firms would showcase their latest products at the expo hall while seminars continue simultaneously at the conference halls. The main aim of the exhibition is to make sure that the design engineers know what are the latest tools and solutions on offer from the leading companies in this domain.
The conference-cum-expo will also host a musical show for the industry, where engineers’ can compete against each other and make sure the evening is truly rocking.

Registration for the event is quite simple; log on to the event website www.electronicsrocks.com and select from the various types of passes, depending on the events, speakers and content that interests you. Select passes entitle you for a certificate of attendance along with other exciting benefits.
