The Hilton Hotel, Warwick, CV34 6RE

In its 5th year, the conference will focus on controlling complexity, with Hobson Bullman, general manager of ARM’s development solutions business delivering the opening keynote. He will be followed by Hugo Vincent, also from ARM, talking about the ARM mbed OS for energy-constrained devices. The day finishes with an address from Niall Cooling of Feabhas who will discuss how the required skills for engineers are changing at a rapid pace.

The event build-up features two days of training which enable delegates to immerse themselves in productive, technical and educational environments. The conference is free to attend, with only the training days attracting a charge.

There will be 13 speakers (including the three keynote addresses), with announcements across the board. Delegates will receive industry insights and have the ability to share knowledge with peers in a highly conducive environment.

“Addressing the conference is a real privilege as it allows me to put forward our view of how the design process is changing as the drive for performance and efficiency continues through the evolution of ever more advanced production nodes,” said Bullman. “With new designs being launched all the time by our partners, this event is a great opportunity to make sure we continue to meet everyone’s needs.”

The second keynote will be delivered by Vincent, the head of ARM mbed OS engineering. This year will see the full release of the new mbed OS, an operating system that has been designed for IoT devices as it is purpose-built to run in highly energy-constrained environments. The operating system includes the connectivity, security and device management functionalities required for any IoT device.

Cooling will give a review of the changing face of core skills required for embedded systems programming.

Throughout the remainder of the day, the presentations will be a mix of the latest innovative developments from key Silicon vendors and leading software providers and will also cover the latest hardware developments and practical software techniques. The presentations will be technology-based as opposed to road maps or sales pitches. This is to ensure that every delegate will leave having gained real knowledge and value from the day.

We are now extending this call for papers to encourage fresh new speakers to join our line-up. Full details of the event and all the ways to get involved can be found here. Registration is also open for this free-to-attend event.
