The next Embedded Systems Conference Boston will be held September 13-16, 2004 at the Hynes Convention Center. More than 3000 design engineers and managers are expected to attend for the technical design classes and business discussions about developing intelligent systems that incorporate processor- based technology.
As security concerns becoming increasingly pervasive and unavoidable especially in the information technology and design engineering realm, CMP Media is simultaneously offering the Embedded Security Seminar, the first in a fall series of three design seminars. The co-located Embedded Security Seminar is a three-day technical program that will focus on encryption, standards firewalls, protecting IP and security for wireless, and Internet protocol. The headline sponsors for the seminar are LynuxWorks and Atmel.
"Embedded design is one of the most dynamic spaces in the high-tech industry today," said Lindsey Vereen, conference director. "As networked embedded applications continue to increase, new challenges are emerging focused on critical issues such as security. With the addition of the Embedded Security Seminar, we'll not only cover the materials, technique, and design of embedded systems, but also the mechanics of engineering secure networked systems."
Dan Saks, writer for Embedded Systems Programming and C++ Guru who served for many years on the International C++ standard committee, will address Keeping Your Job Onshore, how software developers can make themselves more valuable in the marketplace amid the trend toward off-shoring.
The Embedded Systems Conference Boston's conference sessions will delve into design topics such as UML, TCP/IP networking, Linux/Open Source, real-time development, and high availability design. These sessions focus on delivering the technical insight necessary to make embedded system designs stronger, faster, and more reliable. Each class and tutorial provides practical answers to the toughest questions, and teaches skills and techniques that can be implemented immediately.
