We're looking for a few good embedded systems engineers to share their knowledge with colleagues by speaking at the 2014 Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) from March 31 to April 3, 2014, in San Jose, Calif. The submission deadline is Oct. 11.
ESC's Technical Program Committee invites presenters to submit speaking proposals for ESC, which will be held at Design West in San Jose. Each year, the goal is to deliver a unique and highly useful educational experience for embedded systems designers and technical professionals involved in designing electronics products and systems.
We encourage proposals from speakers with deep technical and practical expertise in embedded systems hardware, software, and firmware, as well as practitioners who have developed strategies for reducing time, cost, and complexity in the embedded systems development process.
Proposals are being accepted for ESC on the following topics:
Debugging and test
Embedded systems engineering
Hardware: design, IO, and interfacing
Linux kernel and operating systems
Processors and programmable devices
Real-time operating systems
Safety, security, and hacking embedded systems
Software architecture, development, and design
Technical session (60 minutes): A technical session talk is a deep, how-to-style presentation that reveals new ways of thinking about and applying embedded systems technologies, tips and tricks, and proven strategies and techniques for improving performance, reducing development time, or cutting costs in the embedded systems development process.
Tutorial session (two or four hours): A tutorial session takes a deep dive into a specific topic that merits more classroom time than a 60-minute technical session. Please indicate whether you are proposing a two- or four-hour session and whether you are considering a hands-on component to the class.
Classic postmortem (60 minutes): A classic postmortem talk chronicles in technical detail the design and development of a noteworthy embedded systems application, including a detailed discussion of the tradeoffs and choices made (and why) during the design process.
Proposals that will be given preference in the review process
Talks that reveal new ways of thinking about and applying embedded systems technologies
Talks that feature content never seen before that you have created specifically for ESC
Real-world examples that involve an embedded project or the novel application of technology or that illustrate a solution to a technical challenge in an end product, including a detailed discussion of the tradeoffs and choices made (and why) during the design process
Talks that include a demo to illustrate key technical principles and engage the audience in a creative or more interactive way
Submitting your proposal
Go to the submissions portal for complete submission guidelines and details and to create your speaking proposal.
Please fill out the form completely, and submit it no later than Oct. 11.
All individuals who submit a proposal will be contacted and advised if their proposals are approved.
All presenters who are selected to speak will be required to submit a presentation in advance. Please note that no paper is required this year.
If you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss your preliminary ideas, please contact Karen Field, Design West General Manager and ESC Program Chair, at email@example.com.
@Kinnar Thank you for the shoutout!!! It couldn't be done, of course, without the strong participation and commitment of the design engineering community. We're already getting some pretty amazing speaking proposals coming in. Hope to see your there! :-)
