CW (Cambridge Wireless) has become a go-to hub for industry news and insight having organised technology events for 16 years. The new publication will build on the organisation’s growing membership and evolving brand.
The first issue of CW Journal will focus on the importance of ‘connecting the digital world’ with a focus on the organisations' 19 x Special Interest Groups. It will be published at the end of May, in time for the CW International Conference on 7th June at the Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge.
CWJ is edited by Simon Rockman. An experienced journalist and editor, and active CW member, Simon was the editor of Personal Computer World, founder and editor of What Mobile magazine, and mobile correspondent at The Register. As well as being an expert technology journalist, Simon spent a period with Motorola helping to design better mobile phones, and runs his own MVNO, Fuss Free Phones. He will combine the talents of the CW membership with the smartest and most insightful technology journalism.
Professor John Haine of the University of Bristol is stepping down from the CW Board later this year, but his close involvement with CW will continue through his newly appointed role as Editorial Chair of CWJ. ”Cambridge Wireless is an amazing collection of people from the global wireless industry. Many of the technologies which shape the modern world have been invented and developed by CW members, and CWJ will celebrate that and lead industry thought in the next 16 years” he said.
Robert Driver, CEO of CW says "We are very aware that many CW members only attend events which most closely correlate to their area of work. Someone working on Internet of Things products really would like to know about the activities of the security SIG and those in Security would like to follow the activities of Legal. But with over fifty events a year, we appreciate it’s near impossible to attend them all! The journal will help keep the membership updated”.
As a not-for-profit organisation, CW funds events through membership and sponsorship. All CW events are free for members and in some cases, free for under 35s. CWJ will work on a similar model: free to members with advertising supporting production and postage.
