THE OTTAWA REGION is known as Silicon Valley North and is a hub of technological enterprise and government research making it an ideal location for hosting EMC 2016. The premier event of the IEEE EMC Society will be building on past successes and joining with the Signal Integrity/Power Integrity community to once again present a joint symposium.
Nestled on the banks of the majestic Ottawa, Rideau and Gatineau Rivers, Ottawa is a thriving international technology/business centre and is a recognized leader in both academics and professional training.
With a rich culture, heritage and many national institutions, parklands, waterways and historic locations, the city offers an open and welcoming environment to cultures from around the world, providing service in English, French, and a host of other languages.
THE SHAW CENTRE (formerly The Ottawa Convention Centre)
A bold, modern design, a bright naturally-lit interior, magnificent views...the all-new Shaw Centre offers unparalleled, environmentally responsible setting and support for Ottawa conventions, conferences, meetings and exhibits – large and small. Its 100 ft./31 m. high sweeping window façade faces the Rideau Canal UNESCO World Heritage Site and Parliament Hill. With almost 200,000 sq ft of useable space, The Shaw Centre is perfectly suited for a world-class symposium like EMC 2016 and to provide our guests and attendees with access to the best that Ottawa has to offer. It is directly attached to the Westin Hotel and steps away from the other EMC 2016 hotel venues.
