Submit Your Proposal to Present at the Premier North American Event On Synchronization and Timing Issues Across Industry Sectors*

WHAT AND WHEN: The ATIS Workshop on Synchronization and Timing Systems is developing its 2021 Workshop program. You are invited to be part of this major global event where timing and sync experts from a variety of fields gather to share their insights. Abstracts due by October 9.

BACKGROUND: For 30 years, the Workshop on Synchronization and Timing Systems (WSTS) has brought together leading experts to discuss the latest timing and synchronization topics. Over this period, time synchronization has evolved from a niche application to an underpinning technology across Power, Telecommunication, Finance and many other industries and applications.

WSTS has tracked and progressed the evolution of precision timing over these decades. The event has allowed experts to meet and offers the opportunity to explore cross-industry innovation, as an array of timing technologies becomes increasingly essential to many sectors.

You can present in two ways:

  • Proposals are being requested for talks of interest to a large portion of our audience. Note that for talks, questions will not follow immediately, but be held for a few talks then addressed in a forum of several speakers combined.
  • We also request proposals for posters when it is desirable for more interaction among a smaller audience with the poster presenter.

SUBMIT TODAY. Presenting at WSTS 2021 positions your ideas in front of the top professionals in the timing and sync community. Submit your abstract to be among them.

* NOTE: While ATIS plans to hold WSTS 2021 in-person in Denver, the evolving COVID-19 situation may require that the event be held virtually. ATIS has a successful track record in doing this as demonstrated with the dynamic and well-attended virtual WSTS 2020, held in May. We will keep you informed of event format changes. Whether in-person or virtual, the event WILL be held.
