Lorenz Meier and myself will both be presenting at the conference, and it will be a great opportunity for technical discussions within the DroneCode community. I'm really looking forward to meeting other members of the ArduPilot and DroneCode community and hearing about their work.
Call for Papers
The CE Workgroup of the Linux Foundation would like to invite you to make a presentation at our upcoming Embedded Linux Conference. The conference will be held March 23 - 25 in San Jose, California. The theme for this year is "Drones, Things and Automobiles", and we're excited to discuss some new areas where embedded Linux is really taking
off! (pun intended)
For general information about the conference, See http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/embedded-linux-conference/
For information about the call for participation, see http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/embedded-linux-conference/cfp
Please note the guidelines on the CFP page. It's usually pretty obvious when we're reviewing the abstracts, as a program committee, who has read the guidelines and who hasn't.
ELC is the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for embedded Linux developers. The conference is open to the public.
Presentations should be of a technical nature, covering topics related to use of Linux in embedded systems. Topics related to consumer electronics are particularly encouraged, but any proposals about Linux that are of general relevance to most embedded developers are welcome.
Presentations that are commercial advertisements or sales pitches are not appropriate for this conference.
Especially encouraged this year are talks in the following areas:
- Linux in Automotive
- Drones and Robots
- Linux in the Internet of Things
And we'd also love to hear your proposals in the following topic areas as well:
- Audio, Video, Streaming Media, and Graphics
- System size, Boot speed, and Real-Time Performance
- Flash Memory Devices and Filesystems
- Build Systems, Embedded Distributions, and Development tools
- Mobile Phones, DVRs, TVs, Cameras, etc.
- Practical Experiences and War Stories
Most presentation slots will be 50 minutes long, including time for questions.
Tutorials, demos, and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions may also be proposed.
The deadline for submissions is midnight January 9, 2015 PDT.
