The Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley is soliciting proposals from speakers with deep technical expertise and innovative applications and ideas for the technical conference program and speed training theater sessions.
The conference organizers are seeking paper proposals for technical sessions and 45-minute "speed training" theater talks on the show floor. The Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley, part of DESIGN West 2013, will be held April 22-25, 2013, at the San Jose Convention Center.
Conference organizers are accepting applications for the following tracks:
Connectivity and networking
Debugging and test
"Hello World" – focused on the latest hardware and software development tools
Hardware: Design, I/O, and Interfacing
Linux Kernel and operating systems
Processors and programmable devices
Real time operating systems
Safety, security & hacking embedded systems
The conference organizers are particularly interested in abstracts describing:
Talks that are more technical and reveal new ways of thinking about and applying embedded systems technology
Talks that feature content never seen before that you have created specifically for the Embedded Systems Conference
Real-world case studies involving the novel application of technology or illustrating a solution to a technical challenge in an end product, including a detailed discussion of the trade-offs and choices made (and why) during the design process
Hands-on demos illustrating key technical principles and talks that engage the audience in an unusual or more interactive way.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
