11th international CAN Conference

In September 2006 the 11th iCC took place at the Best Western Foresta in Stockholm (SE). It was sponsored by Vector Scandinavia. The program committee selected papers on physical layer, implementations, gateways, time-triggered communication, system design, software and tools. Some workshops completed the conference program. The topics were: A Hands-on introduction to CANopen, Rapid prototyping of CANopen applications, to name just two of them.
