NI Days, held in Boston on November 5, was in many ways NI Week in a day. While smaller than the annual event held in Austin, Tex., NI Days had an exhibition and a full-day conference. Because the conference was held in Boston, there was a track dedicated to academics. In fact, there were quite a few students on hand to demonstrate their robots. The conference was capped off by Dean Kamen, founder of FIRST, who asked for volunteers to mentor students in robotics and STEM.

About 800 engineers attended NI Days in Boston on November 5, 2013. The exhibition included equipment from National Instruments and many of its partners, plus a few student-built robots. The hall was quite busy in between conference sessions.
