The Associate Laboratory was represented at the convention by managers of the Telecommunications and Multimedia Unit (UTM), the Information and Computer Graphics Systems Unit (USIG) and the Manufacturing Systems Engineering Unit (UESP). INESC TEC’s Optoelectronics and Electronic Systems Unit (UOSE), the Robotics and Intelligent Systems Unit (ROBIS), the Research Centre in Real-Time and Embedded Computing Systems (CISTER) and the High-Assurance Software Laboratory (HASLab) also saw at the ASD Convention an opportunity to divulge their projects and to confirm their position in the Aeronautics, Space and Defence areas. At the Convention, participants had the opportunity to establish a number of promising contacts with other companies, not only at the stand, but also in B2B meetings. The aim was to promote future partnerships.

This Convention is the largest and most important event in this area in Europe, involving every year representatives of associations from different European countries. This year the event involved more than a thousand members, including 530 delegates representing European Associations,  representatives of European associations, in addition to members of the boards of Directors of Prime Contractors, European Commissioners and members of the European Parliament, as well as companies from different non-European countries, namely Brazil and the USA.

For the first time, the Convention also included a Technological Forum which offered a real opportunity for networking and idea sharing between companies, universities and research centres.

The initiative was organised by the Portuguese Agency for Investment and Foreign Trade (AICEP) and by the Association of Defence, Armament and New Technology companies (DANOTEC).
