ARM TechCon 2014 is just around the corner! We’ll be gathering Oct. 1-3 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, and this year, we have 75 exciting sessions divided into 11 different technical tracks mapped across five larger “areas of interest.” This makes it easy for you to not only find the sessions most aligned with your specific needs, but also to create your own customized conference agenda using our automated Schedule Builder.

We had more than 300 submissions for the conference sessions this year, which came from a wide variety of the most influential experts in the ARM technical community. That means the 75 sessions our track chairs selected are truly the best of the best with respect to the most current and forward-thinking topics related to ARM chip implementation, software development, engineering design, and networking. Our track chairs who will be hosting these tracks represent a who’s who of technical experts, including Jack Ganssle of The Ganssle Group; Rob Oshana of Freescale; David Kleidermacher of Green Hills Software; and Niall Cooling of Feabhas. Most of the speakers for each session have years of presentation experience and are sure to advance your knowledge in your area of expertise.

Sessions this year include a look at 64-bit Android from Steve Bannister of ARM; a study of ARM-based microcontrollers for ultra-low-power applications by Markus Levy of EEMBC; the latest on big.LITTLE by Brian Jeff of ARM; and insights on open-source virtual and physical cloud computing on ARM by Ahmed Sallam of Citrix. But whatever your area of focus, the ARM TechCon 2014 technical conference has it!

We’re also building out an all-star lineup of keynote speakers. We’ll open the conference with a Wednesday, October 1, keynote from ARM CTO Mike Muller, who will provide 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.
