The “Spatial Computing for C-IED Workshop” that will take place at the Marine Establishment Amsterdam (MEA – Navy Yards), in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 07 to 09 March 2023, is pursuant to the objectives of the Smart Future C-IED Field Laboratory (SF C-IED FL) Cat B Project, one of the current EDA initiatives supporting the implementation of the EU Capability Development Priority “Develop C-IED and CBRNe Capabilities Based on Newly Available Technology and Training (Ground Combat Capabilities, Enhance Protection of Forces module)”.

Spatial Computing consists of the digitization of activities of machines, people, objects, and the environments in which they take place to enable and optimize actions and interactions. It encompasses Virtual, augmented, or mixed reality technologies, Internet of things devices (such as sensors in a warehouse and on robots), Speech recognition and gestural recognition.

The “Spatial Computing for C-IED Workshop” aims at:

• Gathering information about current knowledge and existing projects on Spatial Computing;

• Sharing with the C-IED community the potential use of Spatial Computing technologies in support of C-IED capabilities;

• Identifying a baseline for future collaborative projects for Spatial Computing in C-IED domain. 

EDA would like to invite the NDIAs and ASD to reach out to their members and encourage them to participate at the “Spatial Computing for C-IED Workshop”. Participation can entail presentation of lectures, commercial stands, demonstrations and/or participation in the working syndicates. 

Workshop : Call for Abstracts, Registration and Contact points 

Interested participants are invited to submit a short Abstract (maximum 200 words) presenting how they intend to participate.

Deadline extended | Abstracts are to be submitted to, with copy to by 27 February 2023.

Participants will be selected based on their Abstracts, which will be evaluated by EDA. Abstracts will be judged on their innovativeness, relevance as well as ability to stimulate discussion for Spatial Computing support to C-IED capabilities.

Participation in this call for Abstracts is open to companies of any size as well as academic, research institutes and associations or groupings of industrial suppliers, as well as any partnerships of the above mentioned.
