San Francisco--July 21, 1998--The 1998 Embedded SystemsConference is the largest ever, with 148 classes and 12 full-day tutorials,nearly 20 percent more educational sessions than last year's four-dayconference.
Running from November 1-5 at the San Jose Convention Center, the conference features classes on topics such as digital signal processing and wirelesstechnologies. For engineers new to embedded systems, many classes also coverbasic topics including C and C++ real-time programming, debuggingstrategies, kernels, and interrupt handling.
All classes are presented by a faculty of experts onembedded systems, including Bruce Douglass, Jack Ganssle, P.J. Plauger, andDan Saks. Additionally, the most popular sessions from previous years,including classes on real-time kernels, web-based management of networkeddevices, and Windows CE, will be offered twice to enable easier scheduling.
Brand-new classes cover areas such as intelligent distributed control,Firewire, and virtual memory. Conferenceorganizers have also added more than a dozen classes covering advancedtopics such as DSP architectures, design patterns in Java, statemachines, and reactive systems.
The conference opens with full-day tutorials on Sunday, November 1, andMonday, November 2. The sessions run from 8:30-5:30 and coversuch topics as managing embedded projects, real-time object-orientedmodeling, software estimation and scheduling, and rate-monotonic analysis.
On Monday, November 2, attendees can choose between the all-day tutorialsor get a jump on regular conference classes. The day ends with a paneldiscussion titled "Windows CE: Hype or Hope?" Moderated by Jim Turley,senior editor of Microprocessor Report, the panel of engineeringprofessionals will discuss the benefits and limitations of the operatingsystem for real-time applications.
In addition to tutorials and classes, each dayof the conference begins with "Birds of a Feather" discussion groups,where attendees meet and share their opinions on current trends andexperiences with specific projects. Other special conference eventsinclude evening receptions, a keynote speech, and a special guest lecture.
An exhibition of products and services for embedded system engineersand designers opens on Tuesday, November 3. More than 280 vendors will usethis forum to unveil the latest new products and make announcements to the industry.
