Silicon Austria Labs (SAL) at high-tech conference #EBSCON in Graz


Graz (OTS) – Intelligent Technologies for a Sustainable Future – SAL researchers Christina Hirschl and András Montvay will speak about this on November 3rd at the Electronic Based Systems Conference (#EBSCON) in Graz. The network event of the Austrian electronics industry brings together industry and cutting-edge research under the motto “Building bridges for tomorrow”.

From power electronics in e-mobility to sensor technology in photovoltaic systems to artificial intelligence for efficient industrial applications – at Silicon Austria Labs at the Villach, Graz and Linz locations, research is carried out on technologies in the field of electronic-based systems (EBS), which are the basis for the energy transition and a climate-friendly economy.

At #EBSCON, a networking meeting for companies, engineers, researchers and students, SAL is represented on the main stage by Christina Hirschl. Together with colleagues on the podium, she will discuss the question of how the “green transformation” can succeed with the help of electronic-based systems under the title “Tech 4 Green”. “As a game changer, microelectronics has great potential for a more sustainable future, because it is the basis for many applications in the field of climate protection,” says Hirschl, site manager of SAL in Villach and head of the research areas Sensor Systems and System Integration Technologies. “At SAL, our team researches application-oriented solutions along the entire value chain in cooperation with partners from industry and science.”

András Montvay, Head of the Edge Computing and Dependable Intelligence Research Units at SAL, will speak in a panel discussion about the sustainability of and with Artificial Intelligence: “AI is penetrating more and more into our lives, because in the Internet of Things (IoT) and digitalized ones In industrial production (Industry 4.0), billions of devices are constantly networked. One key to meeting the resulting requirements for the reliability of the underlying electronics-based systems is the diversity of AI. We are dealing with this at SAL in Graz and I am looking forward to speaking about our research at EBSCON. ”

Occasionally: To the lecturer Christina Hirschl

Christina Hirschl studied physics and mathematics at the University of Vienna. After her dissertation in the field of computational physics, she started her industrial career at Austrian Aerospace in Vienna, where she was responsible for the development of thermal insulation for cryogenic systems and applications in space travel. From 2010 she was project manager at the research center CTR Carinthian Tech Research in Villach. She was responsible for the research area renewable energies / photovoltaics, in which she managed numerous projects. Since July 2019 she has been division and site manager of Silicon Austria Labs GmbH in Villach, which has merged with CTR, and focuses on innovations for electronic-based systems along the entire value chain.

Between: To the lecturer András Montvay

András Montvay can look back on 20 years of experience in the application-oriented realization of innovations since studying electrical engineering and applied computer science at the TU Hamburg-Harburg. He worked in industrial research and development in the areas of embedded systems and software, quality of service in resource-constrained systems and codesign for real-time applications. He has dealt with applications ranging from multimedia home networks to sensors and control of multi-actuator systems to software testability and performance in the automotive sector. In addition to his technical background, András has international management experience. Since 2020 he has headed the Edge Computing and Dependable Intelligence research units based in Graz.
