The MOST® Cooperation (MOSTCO) – the standardization organization for the leading automotive multimedia network Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) – will host the 14th MOST Interconnectivity Conference Asia (ICA) on November 14, 2013 in Tokyo (Japan). The MOST Cooperation is delighted to invite speakers from the automotive electronics industry to contribute to the conference program. Anyone involved with MOST Technology is welcome to present the latest MOST designs, solutions, experiences, research results, and future outlooks.
“This year’s MOST Conference in Asia will focus on the ongoing success of MOST150 being rolled out,” stated Rainer Klos, MOST Cooperation Administrator. “With the current MOST150 rollout, the MOST Cooperation is adding the transmission of Ethernet protocol data to the established in-car transport of audio and video. Thus, the MOST Ethernet Packet Channel (MEP) is equivalent to an IEEE802.x network.”
Suggested topics for presentation include, but are not limited to: MOST physical layer, MOST networking and system architecture, MOST software and protocols, MOST compliance and quality, and MOST applications and series projects experience. Abstracts for submission are due by September 13, 2013 and should be mailed to MOSTCO_PR@mostcooperation.com. The MOSTCO Steering Committee will review all entries and create a high quality program to be presented to Asian carmakers and their suppliers.

About MOST Technology
MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) is a multimedia networking technology optimized for use in cars and other applications. It enables the transport of high Quality of Service audio and video together with packet data and real-time control over a single transmission medium. MOST can use plastic optical fibers (POF), coax based electrical physical layer, and shielded and unshielded twisted pair (STP/UTP) copper wires that meet automotive environmental requirements. Today, MOST is used in over 140 car models as the communication backbone for their information and entertainment equipment.
About MOST Cooperation
The MOST Cooperation (MOSTCO) is the organization through which MOST Technology is standardized and refined so that it continues to stay abreast of the latest industry requirements. Today it consists of 16 international carmakers and more than 60 key component suppliers. They have joined together to work with the MOST Technology and to contribute to its innovation. The MOST Cooperation is prepared to embrace efforts to further develop and standardize the technology for other industries and to establish the corresponding work structures. The MOST Cooperation was founded in 1998 to standardize MOST Technology as a global standard for multimedia networking. Audi, BMW, Daimler, HARMAN and Microchip Technology are its core partners and constitute its Steering Committee. For more information see http://www.mostcooperation.com.
