Linux Foundation announces Android Builders Summit and Embedded Linux Conference
The Linux Foundation has announced the 2011 Android Builder Summit to take place from 13 to 14 April at the Hotel Kabuki, San Francisco. Following the Embedded Linux Conference, the ABS will run for one and a half days, starting at 1 pm on the 13 April. The ELC runs from the 11 to 13 April.
The ABS is a "a technical summit for OEMs, their device manufacturers, integrators, custom builders, and the growing Android and Linux Kernel developer communities." Topics will include custom builds, alternative middleware, network functionality extensions, Peer to Peer frameworks, USB device support, security, unification of power management, tools and hybrid Android devices. Keynotes will be presented by Motorola, the Qualcomm Innovation Center and by Acer.
The ELC consists of three days of presentations, tutorials and birds-of-a-feather sessions – over 50 sessions in all. The presentations from the 2010 ELC are available on-line and the latest updates are available by subscribing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration for ABS is open now for a fee of $295. Attendees can also register for the Embedded Linux Conference for an additional $100, or for the ELC alone, $425 for professionals or $70 for hobbyists. There is a similar dual registration for ELC attendees to attend the ABS as well, for an additional $100.
These events follow shortly after the invitation-only Collaboration Summit, also hosted by the Linux Foundation on the 6 and 7 April (preceded by Camp KDE hosted by the KDE project) at the Hotel Kabuki.
