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.
