I have the honor to be the track chair for the Embedded Internet session track at the ARM Technical Conference, November 9-11, 2010 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. This is the premier ARM-specific conference of the year, with over 60 classes, sessions, and tutorials. This is an important conference for all developers who target ARM processors with any operating system, but I believe it is of primary importance to embedded Linux developers, particularly those using Android.

The Call for Participation is open through June 25. If you would like to speak at the conference, now is the time to get your slides together and submit your abstract. The track with which I am involved will discuss the Embedded Internet – hardware, software, and cost considerations for managing network connectivity in embedded devices. I would love to see some proposals covering hardware and drivers, particularly 4G drivers for Linux, and business reasons for choosing one component, driver, or software stack out of the many options available.

Some important dates to remember:

  • June 25 is the last day to submit proposals. That’s just two weeks from now, so get ’em in.
  • June 30 is the last day of early bird registration. Register now and save $300.
  • August 30 is the last early registration day, still a good savings but not as good as early-bird.
  • November 8 is the last day for advance registration, still saving $100 over onsite registration.
  • November 9 the conference begins in Santa Clara.
