Automotive Linux Summit scheduled for November
The Linux Foundation has announced a new event – the Automotive Linux Summit 2011 – which will take place in Yokohama, Japan on 28 November. The new event has been created specifically for the automotive industry and caters to anyone who is looking into open-source technologies or Linux as a flexible, easily adaptable component in their in-vehicle, dashboard, IVI or vehicle-to-infrastructure solutions. The planners hope to bring together Linux developers and vehicle makers to foster effective collaboration and development.
Interested parties have until 21 October to submit proposals for presentations which will be evaluated by the programme committee; the committee includes representatives from Intel, NEC, Nissan and Toyota. Suggested subjects include real-time Linux for automotive applications, audio and media management, Linux in long life systems, and in-vehicle communication buses.
