The 2016 European Campus Card Conference (ECCA) will be hosted by Wroclaw University of Technology in Poland, on May 22nd to 24th 2016. Wrocław is also the European Capital City of Culture in 2016.
This is the 15th annual conference since ECCA was founded in 1992. The conference is already attracting huge interest, and delegates from all over Europe and worldwide are expected to attend.
Presentations, Research Papers and technical workshops will be presented by speakers from Europe and the US covering a wide range of issues relating to campus cards. The conference exhibition centre, will be attended by leading worldwide card companies and technology developers, provided an insight into the current and future card technology hardware and software systems.
The success of ECCA has been clearly visible to all who attended the conferences, and certainly proved a motivating factor for the use of campus cards and its role in the delivery of an efficient and quality service for colleges and universities. It demonstrates how the power of networking to share information, experience and knowledge is so important.
