Linux is among 15 featured technical tracks at this year's Embedded Systems Conference (ESC), Silicon Valley edition. Billed as “the world's largest international embedded technical conference and exhibition,” the event is set for Apr. 1-5 in San Jose, Calif.

Former Vice President Al Gore will deliver the conference keynote on Tues., Apr. 3. In an address titled “The Democratization of Technology,” Gore will discuss “technological advancement and the potential of user involvement, identifying key opportunities and challenges in charting a new digital society,” according to conference organizers.

The Linux track includes 11 sessions led by such embedded luminaries as Bill Gatliff, Doug Abbott, Michael Anderson, Daniel Daly, and David Knuth. Topics range from licensing to more technical subjects such as cross-development, power management, and real-time performance. A complete subject listing can be found here.

Other conference highlights will include the “Disruption Zone,” showcasing products from companies seeking to “forever change the embedded systems industry,” a live tear down of a Toyota Prius, the co-located Zigbee Developers Conference, the 2007 EE Times ACE Awards, and the new invitation-only Embedded Connections summit for executives responsible for purchasing microprocessors and microcontrollers.
