Session proposals are now being accepted for ARM TechCon 2016, which will take place October, 25-27. Designers, engineers, and developers are encouraged to submit their proposals for technical presentations or panels for the three-day event at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

ARM TechCon 2015 crowdThe ARM TechCon conference facilitates the collaboration between hardware and software communities with the goal of creating a more integrated and collaborative design environment. It brings together hardware engineers, software developers, and system architects working across a broad range of applications, from wearables to drones to servers. ARM TechCon aims to provide informational sessions and offer networking opportunities for those working on ARM-based products, showcasing innovative design techniques and deep technical dives on how to solve the latest design challenges.

The technical tracks for the 2016 conference have been reorganized to keep current with rapidly advancing technologies. ARM TechCon 2016 will have 9 tracks covering Embedded Software Development; Silicon Design; Automotive, Industrial & Functions Safety; Graphics; Contextual Processing; Networking, Infrastructure & Servers; High-Efficiency Systems, Internet of Things, and Trust & Security. A description of each track can be found at

Speakers are invited to discuss design ideas, applications, design advancements, process improvements, and innovative products based on ARM technology. To be accepted, proposals must be technical and educational in nature as well as non-commercial.

Proposals must be submitted by June 10, 2016 through the electronic portal. Sessions last 50 minutes and can be framed as a technical session or panel discussion. All proposals will be reviewed by the ARM TechCon Technical Program Committee and will be evaluated based on quality, relevance, impact, and originality. Accepted proposals will require the presenter to submit slides and to prepare a presentation for ARM TechCon 2016.
