8th Emergency Services Workshop

ESW8 will be held in Budapest on 13-15 April 2011. Just like earlier ESWs, ESW8 will be an international forum for discussing issues related to IP-based emergency calling, with a focus on coordination between different specific efforts (especially standards efforts).

This 3-day conference aims at fostering sharing of best practices between the relevant stakeholders. ESW8 will be a separate track within the overall EENA workshop, focused on Next Generation, IP-based emergency services.

The Workshop will welcome around 200 participants, including around 100 emergency services and public authorities' representatives.
