With this year’s busy spring conference season, the organizers of ARM TechCon 2017 have decided to extend our Call for Proposals deadline for one week. Friday, May 26 is now the deadline to submit your proposal to speak at ARM TechCon 2017, taking place October, 24-26.

Designers, engineers, and developers are encouraged to submit their proposals for technical presentations, panel discussions, or Expo Theater sessions for the three-day event at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The eight technical tracks for the 2017 will cover Embedded Software Development; Silicon Design; Automotive, Industrial & Functions Safety; Computer Vision, Machine Learning & Graphics; Networking & Servers; High-Efficiency Systems, Internet of Things, and Trust & Security. A description of each track can be found at armtechcon.com/call-for-proposals/.

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 May 26, 2017 through the electronic portal. Sessions last 50 minutes and can be framed as a technical session, panel discussion, or Tech Theater session. 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 2017.
