London, Prague, Nice & Munich

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

The whole September in one sentence: I was busy: Two times in London, a nice week at the Cote d’Azur/Nice, an exciting stay in Prague and the Oktoberfest in Munich. In London I held one workshop at the mobile NFC and the other day I was at the Royal Holloway College in London (see Picture). It really was amazing there. On the way home, there was a chaos in Heathrow (as usually) and in the end I missed my plane (long story) and thus met Pamela in Frankfurt on her way home.

As last year I was in Nice at the Smart-Event. There I gave several presentations on NFC and the Research Topics we are looking into at Hagenberg. Prague was the Location of the SIMagine Conference 2008, promoting the largest SmartCard Developers Competition in the world. After our success last year, I was invited to give a talk on the whole process of the competition and some hint on how participate in the contest. Last but not least I was in Munich on Monday, meeting lots of friends at the Oktoberfest. After not being there last year, I was glad that it didn’t change too much. You’re still allowed to smoke there ;-)
