Euro embedded Linux devcon solicits papers

Aug 17, 2007 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

Prospective speakers and presenters at the first-ever Consumer Electronics Linux Forum (CELF) European Conference now have until Aug. 31 to submit proposals. Set for Nov. 2-3 in Linz, Austria, the event will be held in conjunction with the 9th Real-Time Linux Workshop.

Presentations should be technical rather than commercial in nature, and relate to the use of Linux in embedded systems. Subject matter may stray from consumer electronics, as long as it interests “most embedded users,” CELF says.

Suggested topics include:

  • Audio, video, and graphics systems for embedded products
  • Security
  • System size
  • Bootup time
  • Meeting real-time constraints
  • Power management
  • Streaming media
  • Flash memory devices and filesystems
  • Technologies related to cell phones, digital set-top boxes, handheld devices, or other CE products
  • Development tools for embedded users
  • Use of Linux in actual products, practical experience and war stories
  • Standards for CE products

Priority will be given to presentations not previously given or widely distributed. CELF requests permission to publish any associated papers on its Wiki. Examples from previous conferences can be found here (2006) and here (2007).

The deadline for proposing presentations, demos, and birds-of-a-feather (BOF) sessions is Aug. 31 (previously, it was Aug. 11). Speakers will be notified by Sept. 15. Additional details can be found here.
