The 2015 DVCon/Europe was held in Munich at the Holliday Inns City Center Hotel November 11-12. November in Munich brought back long ago memories of a snow covered city with freezing temperatures when I lived there in the 80s. Not this November. Warm, sunny days crowned the conference and invited attendees to take a 20-minute stroll across the Isar River to Marienplatz, the heart of the city.
2015 was the second year of the conference. For the enjoyment of Accellera, the sponsor of the event, it recorded an increase in attendees (from 220 to 270) and in exhibitors (25). The success was achieved despite a Lufthansa’s attendant strike that prevented about 50 people from attending and the simultaneous running of the popular Productronica Conference in Munich and ARM TechCon in U.S.
