Keynotes

This year, ARM TechCon is all about ideas, inspiration, and innovation surrounding the ARM platform and community, and our keynote speakers will be aligned to that precise theme as collectively they map out a strategic direction for the future of ARM and your role in it! Don’t miss the opening keynote on Day 1, Wednesday, October 1, as ARM CTO Mike Muller provides a roadmap for the ARM architecture that is the must-attend session at this year’s ARM TechCon. If you’re a veteran of the ARM community, you know that Mike’s presentations are as informative as they are entertaining. A straight-shooter and no-holds-barred presenter with an intimate understanding of the future of ARM and the ARM architecture will lay out a roadmap that will help you better understand how you can contribute your own ideas and innovation to your area of interest. Mike will be joined by Peter Hutton, ARM’s Executive Vice President and President of the Products Group. Pete will bring his own expert knowledge and provide details on such areas as ARM processors, graphics, video and display technology; system IP; and development tools. Then, on Thursday morning, you can’t miss the keynote from ARM CEO Simon Segars, who will provide you with the company’s strategic vision, business impact, and partner benefits. And he may even bring along a surprise guest or two to say a few words!

But we’re not done. We’re still in talks with some exciting keynote candidates who will be on site to talk about really cool wearable technology and discuss entrepreneurism, the “maker” spirit of the ARM community, and your role on improving innovation in your career and at your company.

Stay tuned for additional keynote speaker updates!
