The International Timing & Sync Forum (ITSF) is the largest specialist time and sync conference in the world with over 170 delegates attending the 2017 event in Warsaw and even more expected for 2018 in Bucharest. The attendance by users of and specialists in precise time - Telecoms, Finance, Energy, Transport, Broadcast and Defence is growing rapidly.

The high quality content is put together by the ITSF Steering Group comprised of international experts in time and sync representing equipment manufacturers, operators and in many cases members of relevant Standards bodies. Attending ITSF will ensure you keep you up to date with the latest time and time transfer technologies and techniques relevant to critical infrastructure and emerging applications. The conference is preceded by a Tutorial day, open to all, led by synchronisation experts from around the world and from a range of disciplines.

I welcome the new Chairman for 2018 - Tommy Cook of Calnex Solutions. It has been an enormously exciting journey since 2001 to steer ITSF from its roots in Telecom Sync to address the broad applications of precise time that are so vital for our infrastructure today. It has been an honour to lead the Steering Group over these years and it has been wonderful to make so many international friends through ITSF. The Conference is getting stronger year on year and organised very ably by Executive Industry Events. Tommy has been a steering group member for 10 years and Vice Chairman for the last three. I have full confidence he will continue to guide the conference from strength to strength in the years ahead.

ITSF 2018, is taking place in Bucharest, Romania 5-8 November 2018.
