This year's Embedded Linux Conference Europe conference is the second ELCE event since the CE Linux Forum (CELF) forum merged into the Linux Foundation (LF) as a working group in Oct. 2010. (The first post-LF event occurred the same week the merger was announced last October in Cambridge, U.K.) CELF also sponsors the U.S. ELC show, which this year was held in April in San Francisco. Merging with the LF brings some benefits to CELF's conference attendees, in that ELC/ELCE registrations also provide free passes to co-located LF conferences. In Prague, for example, ELCE attendees can also attend the world debut of LinuxCon Europe, which will be held at the same venue during the same three-day Oct. 26-28 period. A GStreamer conference is also co-located with the events.
ELCE will start off Oct. 26 with an address from LF Executive Director Jim Zemlin, who will "imagine a world without Linux." This will be followed by a Kernel Developer Panel that features a star-studded cast including Linux creator Linus Torvalds (pictured at right), real-time Linux pioneer Thomas Gleixner, Intel's Alan Cox, and IBM's Paul McKenney. The Oct. 27 keynotes, meanwhile, include Ixonos President of Global Solutions Antti Aumo discussing the "Cloud Phone," which may or may not refer to his company's announced support for the HTML5-focused Tizen spin-off of MeeGo and LiMo. Aumo's address will be followed by Intel Chief Linux and Open Source Technologist Dirk Hondel (pictured at left) offering a "Reflection on 20 years of Linux." Perhaps Dirk, too, can help the somewhat skeptical Linux community understand how Tizen will do any better than MeeGo and LiMo.
The Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE) will be held October 26-28, Clarion Congress Hotel, in Prague, Czech Republic. Combined registration for ELCE and the collocated LinuxCon Europe, costs $550, with discounts available for students and "hobbyists."
