About The Conference

The Embedded Linux Conference (ELC) is the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products.  This conference, now in it's 6th year, has the largest collection of sessions dedicated exclusively to embedded Linux and embedded Linux developers.

ELC is embedded Linux experts talking about solutions to your embedded Linux problems.

This year we will again be co-located with the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit, so attendees will be able to participate in both events on the same trip (if traveling long-distance). The Collaboratin summit is normally an invitation-only event, but attendance at ELC guarantees you a spot at the Summit.

ELC consists of 3 days of presentations, tutorials and Bird-of-a-Feather sessions. There are over 50 sessions to choose from, on a wide variety of topics.  See below for highlights.

Reserve your spot now, by registering today.

To get an idea of the type of content, please see the presentations and videos from ELC 2009.  The videos from ELC Europe 2009 have just recently been published.

Along with these speakers, there will be 3 days of presentations, tutorials and Bird-of-a-Feather sessions (over 50 in total) on topics like:

Make sure you click on the Sessions tab for a complete list.

This is your chance to meet leading developers from the embedded Linux community, and learn about the latest changes in Linux.  Also, you can talk to engineers working on real products at some of the largest CE companies in the world, describing how they solved real issues in their own development projects.  The Embedded Linux Conference is one of the leading events where you can learn directly from the experts.  A session or even a 10-minute hallway conversation at ELC can save you weeks of work, or give you just the idea you need to solve that problem you're working on!!

If that's not enough, due to a special arrangement with the Linux Foundation, as an attendee of ELC you will also be granted access to all Linux Collaboration Summit sessions and activities.  Please register for the Collaboration Summit separately through this link:

This is normally an invitation-only event, but you can guarantee a spot at the Collaboration Summit by attending ELC.

Finally, don't miss the evening reception on Wednesday night - where you'll have a chance to mingle with Linux developers from around the world in a relaxed and informal setting, while enjoying Asian cuisine in the heart of San Francisco.

What is the CE Linux Forum?

The main sponsor of ELC is the CE Linux Forum (CELF). Each year two conferences are organized. In Spring, ELC - CELF's main international event - is organized in the USA. In Autumn, ELC Europe is held targeting a European audience.

CE Linux Forum is an international open source software development community established in 2003. It is a forum of like-minded software engineers dedicated to the development and enhancement of Linux-based embedded devices through the irreplaceable resource of shared knowledge. These engineers bring their ideas and finest skills to such missions as decreasing system size, startup/shutdown time, and power consumption; improving compatibility to various CPU architectures, and developing middleware.
