To allow time for all submissions, including those from companies attending the DAC last week, we have extended the ARM TechCon 2016 Call for Proposals deadline for one week. Friday, June 17 is the firm deadline to submit your proposal to speak at ARM TechCon 2016, happening October 25-27 in Santa Clara, CA.

As in past years, a goal of this year’s ARM TechCon conference is to facilitate collaboration between hardware and software communities and create a more integrated and collaborative design environment. ARM TechCon 2016 will bring together hardware engineers, software developers, and system architects working across a broad range of applications, from wearables to drones to servers.

The conference technical tracks have been updated for the 2016 conference and will now include 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 armtechcon.com/call-for-proposals-2016/.

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.

All proposals will be reviewed by the ARM TechCon Technical Program Committee and will be evaluated based on quality, relevance, impact, and originality. Proposals must be submitted by June 17, 2016 through the electronic portal. Sessions last 50 minutes and can be framed as a technical session or panel discussion.
