The focus of workshop was on Industrial Ethernet and wireless communications. The workshop was arranged to coincide with the last General Meeting of CoNeT project; a three year EU funded project focused on training in Industrial Ethernet, with partners from Belgium, Greece, Spain, Poland, Germany, Bulgaria, and Ireland.

It was very well attended workshop with over 65 participants. The program comprised of a morning with nine short presentations, and an afternoon of three more detailed presentations from a truly international group of speakers. There were many opportunities for hands-on demonstrations, both in the lecture room, and in parallel demo room. The demonstrations panels constructed by PROFIBUS Ireland members and ARC research Engineers James Mannion, Philip Thompson, and Peter Ryan.
