What is the CE Linux Forum?

The Embedded Linux Conference (ELC) is the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products. 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.
