The Hitchhiker's Guide to Dayton Tech & Startups

National Aerospace & Electronics Conference & Ohio Innovation Summit (NAECON-OIS)


  • University of Dayton’s Research Institute 1700 South Patterson Boulevard Dayton, OH, 45409 United States

2016 NAECON/OIS is in collaboration with IEEE Circuits and Systems Society exploring complementing research areas in emerging electronics and microsystems, trust in microelectronics, reconfigurable computing, wide area surveillance, analog and digital signal processing, radar systems, and electronic warfare.

This conference is a major forum for researchers, practitioners, and students interested in aerospace systems, and their impact on computing, information, processing, design, and applications.
