The objective of the symposium, to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from industry, academia, and government involved in the area of Precision Clock Synchronization and Distributed Time-based Applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Distributed applications based on synchronized clocks:

  • Software and hardware architecture
  • Design environments and tools
  • Application requirements studies

Clock synchronization technology:

  • Design, usage, and research concerning IEEE 1588
  • Clock system management
  • Timing security and robustness


Silver, gold, and platinum sponsors will have the opportunity to participate in the exhibit program at ISPCS. View our promotional partner packages here. Last year, we had 10 exciting exhibit booths setup throughout the Symposium.


The 10th White Rabbit Workshop will be held at CERN following the ISPCS  conference (6-7 October 2018), participation is free, see information about this and previous WR Workshops. White Rabbit is a CERN-developed extension of PTP (IEEE1588) that provides sub-ns accuracy of synchronization. The topics of the WR Workshop will include WR technology evolution, applications and the process of standardization under IEEE 1588.
