Embedded Software Development
As time-to-market pressures increase, the need to embrace and exploit productive, efficient, and smart software development rises. Learn the latest techniques and technologies in debug, multicore software, Linux/Android operating systems, compilation tools, languages, methodologies, optimization, performance tuning, and exception handling.

Silicon Design
Every year, silicon systems become more complex and this brings fresh challenges. This track will explore how updated IP and tooling can assist with designing complex systems, the growing need for hardware/software co-development to accelerate product design cycles, the hardware implications of functional safety and security requirements, the need for more advanced debug subsystems to successfully bring up complex silicon, and the all-important balance between system architecture and hardware implementation in determining system performance.

Automotive, Industrial & Functional Safety
Nowhere has electronics design revolutionized product development more than in the automotive and industrial sectors. Get insight and instruction into some of the most interesting engineering challenges of today, including real-time signal processing, machinery control, embedded vision, functional safety, and robotics.

Computer Vision, Machine Learning & Graphics
Systems are becoming more intelligent all the time, and this requires new insight into system architecture, processing methodologies, and machine learning algorithms. Increasingly, these are being coupled with the creation of machines with vision, image processing, and virtual/augmented-reality capabilities. This track will examine new synergies in these critical and growing areas and explore new algorithm and architecture developments.

Networking & Servers
The rise of big data has focused attention on enterprise networking and servers, including those deployed in cloud infrastructure. In the Networking & Servers track, sessions will focus on how Arm technology-based systems and subsystems can be optimized for purpose, from networking, IFC, and HPC to storage server platforms, heterogeneous systems, and open source systems.

High-Efficiency Systems
Efficiency was once the sole domain of mobile, battery-constrained systems. This is no longer the case, as energy-efficiency concerns span electronics systems from the cloud out to the edge nodes. The High-Efficiency Systems track will examine power-efficient software and hardware design, sub-volt silicon design, battery life maximization, and energy harvesting.

Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is evolving into a vast system of small, single-purpose, low-power devices that must communicate reliably and efficiently. In the IoT track, learn about sensor fusion, the integration of big and small data, IFC, distributed analytics, communications protocols, and the challenges of wearables systems design.

Trust & Security
Today’s design ecosystem is rooted in connection at all levels, but these new connections come with significant trust and security considerations. The Trust & Security track details the latest information on provisioning, authentication, encryption, trusted HW/SW, mobile payment, DRM, BYOD, virtualization, and secure boot technologies, among others.
