Keynoters at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) over the years have included engineers, inventors, programmers, industry moguls, physicists, scientists, astronauts, explorers, cartoonists, sci-fi authors, musicians, politicians, manufacturers, analysts, futurists, and industry (and cultural) icons. As varied as embedded systems are, so too have been the ESC speakers and keynoters. The DESIGN West conference staff needs your ideas for keynote addresses and conference speakers.

In a Strategy Analytics survey, 40% of Americans said they were not at all interested in fully autonomous driving. It's hard to picture those opposing gun control abdicating the freedom of turning their own steering wheel.
Verification remains a key issue in system-on-chip development. The time taken to verify a high-density SoC design to a high level of confidence can lead teams to think the unthinkable. One of these counterintuitive options is to not exhaustively verify a chip before taping out but use the resulting silicon itself as a cornerstone of the verification process.
Work by a team at the University of Oxford and the University of Exeter may well become recognized as the first steps on the road to a new and bright optoelectronic future for phase-change memory materials.
